建筑学院毕业后我学到的10样东西
10 Lessons I Learned After Architecture School

由专筑网缕夕,严越编译

建筑学是一种激情的职业。对于某些人来说,成为建筑师这个决定是非常困难的。尽管读书研究时间长,但寻找工作后,在决定中发挥重要作用。它需要决心,努力工作,超越正常好奇心的激情。

如果像我一样,你在大学时代幸存下来,对建筑学有更高的好奇心和更强烈的热情,你可能已经考虑了下一步。几个月的作品集制作,投简历,面试,似乎充斥着你的生活,最终你会获得一份较为满意的工作。在工作场所的几次尝试,错误和失败会让你向成功更迈进一步。

缺点是必会存在的,它花了我多年的时间,提出问题来了解这一点。我设想了我个人发展的不同步伐,并且不得不学会应对和使用失败来催化未来的成功。这是多年的建议,研究和个人崇拜的合并。在与专业界内外的朋友和人士交谈中,我已经总结了这一点,只是帮助您完成建筑实践的指导。

我想,首先,我认为是最重要的一点:


1.网络化

建筑的世界隐藏在所有范围之外。要成功,重要的是在你周围建立一个社区。所以和人们谈谈你做什么,当他们谈论自己的专业的时候也听听他们所说的,最重要的是保持好奇!珍惜每一次机会去参加并成为网络活动的一部分。积累人脉的进度很重要,抓住每一个机会,结交新朋友,各行各业,因为你永远不知道你旁边会是谁。

2.通讯

人类仍然是大多数建筑哲学的中心。因此,沟通是关键。了解如何与同事、上级,最重要的是客户沟通。在会议中,要放心:相信自己能从输入中有所创造、或是增强或提升解决方案,找到正确的表达方式。不要胆小,这是办公室对话的一部分。最后,熟悉数字可视化创新。

3.脱颖而出

在办公室里,你可能会被困在一个例行程序中,一遍又一遍地做同样的事情。如果你的愿望超出了这个范围,那么问清楚你的内心。向你的雇主展示你的潜力和成效。如果你的兴趣是绿色技术,可持续发展或BIM,那么就沉浸在其中。成为专家了解有关该主题的所有信息;参加研讨会,订阅相关杂志或杂志,成为该选区掌握信息和专业知识的那个人。

4.草图

设计师最有效的技能是通过草图进行思考。你可以看看,著名的建筑师,从帕拉迪奥到最近离开的扎哈•哈迪德,你都会看到,他们都勾画出来,都是徒手手绘的。在你的武器库里,这是一种在数字技术准确可能性的诱惑下被忽略的工具。但我建议你,通过你的草图看世界。通过自己的草图分析建筑物,地方和任何有趣的东西。发展你的技能,你自己的个人风格。最重要的是让自己写一本素描本。建筑师不应该没有他/她的素描本和一两支铅笔。

5.工作精神

好的,我们都看到建筑师的模样,都知道他没有睡好觉,衣服破旧,疲惫不堪。要有高效率的工作,你必须全身心投入使用。你会长时间工作。是的,你会是全能者。我可以说的是,展示你的激情,有效地工作,你将能够要求你的价值。这将是艰巨的,但最终将是值得的。

6.教育自己

是!您已完成学位课程,完成您的专业学习。但它不会结束那里,不幸的是。知识将是无限的宝藏,作为空间的设计师,我们必须活到老学到老。在专业环境中,有一些法律知识要及时更新。为自己的利益获得知识。我恳求你,随时了解,阅读更多,多看看TED talk; 从他人的成败中学习。

7.导师

简单地说,找到自己的导师,不论你在哪里工作。可以有人仰望;在需要时给您建议,需要时推你往前一把。在另一边,自己成为一个导师,与别人分享您的知识。此外,它迫使你学习更多,所以你可以建立在自己的知识。

8.了解建筑业务

在学习的同时,我们寻求最好的设计方法,最好的软件等。我们忘了问一个简单的问题,架构的业务如何运作?了解业务如何运作;如何得到和保持客户;我们得到报酬的时间和地点;学习投标和运营良好办公室的氛围。

9.拥抱你的失败

在你职业生涯的过程中,你肯定会失败。这是一个必然的事实。所以学会从失败中获得智慧。我记得我的讲师,告诉我们,在我们的设计中,要把问题看作机遇。平等看待你的失败; 从你的失败找到未来的胜利。

10.目光放在你的目标上

必须记住你为什么进入这个职业。也许你想改变世界;希望看到你的摩天大楼是伦敦或纽约天际线的一部分,或者你想减少建筑的碳足迹。无论你的目标是什么,保持让你的激情指引你。

在接下来的几年里,你将有好几个难受的日子,甚至有可能会流泪。这就是为什么重要的是保持你的目标在你面前,包括字面上和精神里。每当它变得太具挑战性的时候,看看你的目标——这个奖品。

最后我想说,在我们成为建筑师的旅程中,我们偶尔会在我们的努力中失败。重要的是,我们可能会出现更好的信息和更好的装备。我们大多数建筑师看起来很困难。但你必须保持信心,保持自己的能力。这可能是艰巨的,但是你要耐心、坚持不懈;因为你自己的长处,你是否能寻找到你的目标。

Architecture is a profession of passion. To some, the decision to be an architect is a very difficult one. The long duration of the study; the search for a job after, play an essential part in the decision. It requires determination, hard work, and a passion for the subject matter that goes beyond normal curiosity.
If like me, you survived your university years with a higher level of curiosity and a stronger passion for architecture, you might have considered what next. Months of portfolio edits, rejections, and interviews that seem to go nowhere, will eventually secure you a job. It will take a few tries to navigate the workplace. Mistakes and failings might occupy you.
Flaws are necessary. It has taken me years of failing, asking questions and reading on the subject to understand this. I had envisioned a different pace of my personal development, and failing was hard to take. I had to learn to cope and to use them as catalyzes of future success. This is an amalgamation of years of advice, research and personal epiphanies. In talking to friends and people within and outside the profession, I have compiled this, as only a guide to help you get through your architectural practice.
I want, to begin with, what I believe is the most important point:

1. NETWORKING.
The world of architecture is hidden to all outside its scope. To be successful, it is important to build a community around you. So talk to people about what you do; listen to them, when they speak about their professions and most of all, be curious! Take every chance to go to and to be part of networking events. It is important for your progress to collect new contacts. Take every opportunity to make new friends, in all walks of life. You never know who is next to you.

2. COMMUNICATION.
The human being remains the centre of most architectural philosophies. As such, communication is key. Learn therefore how to communicate to peers, superiors, and most importantly, clients. In meetings, be confident: where you believe your input can create, enhance or elevate a solution, find the right manner of voicing them. Do not be timid but rather a part of the office’s conversations. Lastly, keep in touch with digital visualization innovation.

3. STAND OUT.
In the office, you can be stuck in a routine, doing the same thing over and over again. If your aspirations are beyond the scope of that horizon, then seek it. Show your employer, your potential and effectiveness. If your interest lays within green technology, sustainability or BIM, immerse yourself in it. Become an expert. Learn all you can about the subject; take the seminars, subscribe to the relevant magazines or journals and become the go-to person for information and expertise in that chosen area.

4. SKETCH.
A designer’s most effective skill is the ability to think through sketches. If you were to have a look, at the greats: from the likes of Palladio to the recently departed Zaha Hadid, you might see; they all sketched, all drew. In your arsenal, is a tool that is most ignored in lure of the accurate possibilities of technology. But I urge you, to look at the world through your sketches. Analyse buildings, places and anything that intrigue you, through your own sketches. Develop your skill, your own personal style. Most importantly, get yourself a sketchbook. An Architect should go nowhere without his/her sketchbook and a pencil or two.

5. WORK ETHIC.
Okay, we have all seen the memes, showing architects not sleeping, shabby and exhausted. To be effective, you have to put in the hours. You will work long hours; and yes, you will have some all- nighters. All I can say is, show your passion, work effectively and you would be able to demand your worth. It would be arduous, but ultimately it will be worth it.

6. EDUCATE YOURSELF.
Yes! You have finished your degree program, completed your professional studies. It doesn’t end there, unfortunately. Knowledge is infinite. As designers of such things as space, we must keep hold of education. In the professional setting, there are laws that you must be up to date with. Above that, acquire knowledge for your own benefit. I beseech you, keep informed, read more, get the TED app; learn from the success and failures of others.

7. MENTORSHIP.
Simply put, find yourself a mentor, within or without your place of work. Someone to look up to; to give you advice when needed and a push when required. On the other side of the coin, become a mentor yourself. Share your knowledge with someone else. Besides, it forces you to learn some more, so you can you can build on your own knowledge.

8. LEARN THE BUSINESS OF ARCHITECTURE.
While studying, we seek the best design approaches, best software etc. We forget to ask a simple question, how does the business of architecture work? Learn how the business works; how to get and keep clients; when and where we get paid; learn of tendering and all the other aspects of running an effective office.

9. EMBRACE YOUR FAILURES.
The certainty is, within the course of your professional career, you are going to fail. This is an inevitable truth. So learn to acquire wisdom from your failures. I remember a lecturer of mine, telling us never to use the word, ‘problem’ when it came to our designs. Rather, he asked us to see them as opportunities. See your failures in the same light; from your failings find future triumph.

10. LASTLY, KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE.
It is imperative to remember why you entered into this profession. Maybe you wish to change the world; wish to see your skyscraper as part of the London or New York skyline or maybe you want to diminish the carbon footprint of architecture. Whatever your goal is, keep it at hand. Let your passion direct you.
For the next few years, you will have more than a few bad days. It is even possible, that you may shed some tears. This is why it is important to keep your goal in front of you, both literally and figuratively. Whenever it gets too challenging, look towards your goal – the prize.
