Architectural Education | A Final Year Student and his Thesis Introduction
After five years of Architectural Education here are a few points to ponder and respond.
There is no way we can compress five years of a romantic tryst with Architecture into a few short sessions. But the experience of space is something like fishing – There is an ocean of knowledge where time and again, you have to throw hook, line and sink, and be able to satisfy one’s need. Therefore, don’t worry about the past. I am still learning what a LINE is, and I am not being modest.
The immediate task, of any final year student is his thesis. This pervading topic dominates all others in its intensity. It is here that the student goes through a final test for competence and it is this issue which becomes a tool for punishing recalcitrant students for their ‘past misdeeds’. But let me tell you something – Out in the market place – neither academicians nor practicing Architects ever would look at your grades. It is only the quality of your work which is seen through your portfolios and Reports. So don’t worry about your grades.
