They’re fast. They’re efficient. They’re the future of nationalization & globalization.
This article is written as a prelude to an extensive list about the future of architecture. As I was crafting the list, I realized every item needed an exclusive in depth look. So let’s talk about Hyperloops.
A Hyperloop is a high-speed transportation system meant to be used for both passenger and freight transport. It is a sealed tube or system of tubes with low air pressure, through which a pod can travel free of air resistance or friction. The three major components are therefore a tube, a pod…
Based on a real conversation with my mom
“I want to build out there, in space. On the Moon, on Mars, & Beyond!” I said excitedly.
I was met with a short silence.
“I just don’t get it. Mars? Is there even oxygen there? Can we even grow plants? Why do we want to go there?”
It took me by surprise. For me, it has always been abundantly clear. Humanity will conquer the stars. We have to be a space faring civilization. All the benefits have unquestionably outweighed the risks. …
I find the person's use of "googling" amateurish, and your use of “browsing tools” more sophisticated for a resume. That being said, frequency of use does not equate to professional capacity, although many would argue against that.
Just because you are good at finding answers for your profession doesn't mean you'd be a good overall researcher. Different industries provide different challenges. It can be in the availability of information (i.e. some industries require subscriptions to have access to specific articles that are peer-reviewed). Other industries have outdated web design, making websites difficult to navigate and redundant.
In conclusion, being a good overall online researcher is a skill very scarce in the world and whoever can claim proficiency in it, deserves all the "expert clout". They are far superior in skill than the average Joe "googler" or the hyper-specialized professional.
Medium is full of self-help guides, blatant criticism, and little to no stories. Maybe it’s just my feed?
I fell in love with the art of writing from a very young age. I realized its impact very vividly. First through the literature book compendiums in my English class. It was wonderful. How worlds would emerge as the words kept entering my brain. Environments were painted with the richness of child-like wonder. Echoes of imagined voices animated the scene. And the excitement of adventure propelled me to read short story after short story from beginning to end. …
Small things to take in consideration
I wouldn’t dare say that architectural design cures mental health, but there is evidence of some interventions you can make to boost overall mental health within a built environment. Most of these interventions are implemented in hospitals, hospices, and retreats to aid in the healing process. In this article, I will detail some items you should watch out for, and give a brief explanation on why making small changes to your home can have a huge impact on your mental health, mood, emotions, and behavior.
A Quick Guide Awaits
Welcome! To My short guide of giving good criticism, if you come from my previous article Be More Than Fluff then I appreciate the follow up. If you haven’t check it out, be sure to read it before or after, no particular order is required.
The reason I specified Non-Professional criticism its because you can’t ever expect to be from a different field and give good professional advice as a default — unless you have insider information on the industry criteria. If you’re a jack of all trades and know a bit about everything then good…
A Short Guide on Giving Feedback on Social Media
Every time I see a post online with 2345 gazzilion comments I am disappointed and rather than be at awe at the virality and success of the post, I look at it for what it is: “fluff engagement”.
From the Kardashians to your local artist the comment sections looks a little like this:
User A: Amazing! ❤
User B: Awesome Work!
User C: Love this 👏
User D: YAAAS Kween/King! ❤ 🙌
While some might argue that this is just a wave of positivity, I think content creators and artists deserve…
They hear what you have to say, but they rarely listen.
Due to many circumstances in my life, I always find myself being the person to call when in trouble, when in doubt, and when lost. I take this reality very seriously, and by no means am I boasting about this privileged position in a mocking manner for I understand the weight of the trust placed on me. That being said I have noticed consistent patterns that often feel like my advice falls into deaf ears.
A problem solver at heart, you list a problem and I will barrage you…
Insights from an Aspiring Architect
When I used to be in school I used to villainize the citizens for the repetitive buildings around me. The rhetoric of school makes it seem like “the people” don’t want innovative architecture and that you can only achieve that through these mystical one in a lifetime wealthy clients who are willing to break the mold. As an architectural intern I quickly realized that is far from the truth. Since then I have done a lot of informal polls through social media to see what actual citizens think about their cities and built environment. I…
I think you are definitely in the right track - I also give services for free. People are often shocked, people from the industry get mad but I also say often also say if you wish to donate - whatever amount is fine, and when people are very happy with the work they tend to be quite generous.
I do think it is a balance of giving for free to generate trust and knowing your worth. …
