What We Learnt:
- The early projects you take on could define who you are as an architect. As young architects, craft your career by always questioning and considering the nature of the projects and who you want to become eventually as architects;
- Details matter. Consider the impact of detail not at a specific moment but in relation to the spatial quality inside out;
- Each type of project has its limit, but there is no need to get frustrated. Think how design could amplify its quality within the limit, and find ways to move beyond its boundary.
