Architecture and Interior Design Personal Statement

Architecture and Interior Design Personal Statement

Ambitious, meticulous, creative and passion for design are qualities which I believe
will make me successful in achieving excellent academic and industry results in
architecture, interior and spatial Design. Having a deep understanding of physics,
excellent ability to project manage and profound creativity, I believe I can contribute
to the academic environment your university provides.
Completing Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering, I have a proven high
level of research skills, technical design techniques, methodical idea generation and
development, through to completion. Capitalising on my ability to solve problems
and produce new ideas, with systematic improvements and reliability. I ensure the
design creativity meets safety regulations while keeping the audience in mind.
My strengths lie in my capacity to understand, calculate and design precise
concepts, with innovative creativity within cross-functional project teams. Working in
harmony with my engineering degree, this reaffirms my propensity for accuracy,
function and endurance in structural design and aesthetics.
Demonstrating my ability and commitment to pursuing a career in this field, I have
undertaken important and relevant courses to further develop my skills and build my
portfolio. This includes a professional course at The Interior Design School, gaining
a firm grounding in the design process, interior elements and drawing techniques. I
have also developed my visual vocabulary required to present work to clients. I have
cultivated my skills in residential and commercial design through various innovative
projects. Additionally, I have complete an architectural sketching course.
Completing the 3DS Max, AutoCAD and Vray Advanced Course has given me the
powerful, industry standard tools needed to create and manipulate architectural and
interior visualisations. Using these professional programs I am able to create high
quality visuals for practical applications. I have learnt how to work in a production
environment, proficiently utilise a variety of techniques and materials to texture
models, produce realistic light sources, render scenes, use Photoshop, postprocessing and perceive compositional techniques.
These comprehensive courses reflect my drive and ambition to succeed in this
dynamic world of design. I am confident to take a brief, analyse the requirements,
provide a visual interpretation, present the final project and evaluate the process and
outcomes. The ability to use industry standard programs proficiently gives me a solid
competitive advantage in today’s complex marketplace.
Assigned to a 3 month work placement as project advisor for office design, I utilised
my technical skills, intrinsic aptitude for design and creativity. I was responsible for
the refurbishment and decoration of the offices. Designing my own house highlighted
my ability and talent for professional interior design.
I have an innate fascination and interest in interior decor; how different colours,
textures, objects and lighting have an emotional impact on the inhabitants. In my
own time I enjoy sketching, photography, evaluating historical and contemporary
space and editing personal projects. Connecting space, design and architectural
structure with the psychology and culture of humans is something I find I do every day. I take inspiration from journals such as John Wardle Architects and trade
magazines such as Detail, FX and Idfx.
A combination of precise engineering and technical design skills, passion for
imaginative design and motivation, I choose to succeed in this demanding and
dynamic field of design. My creativity and natural curiosity push boundaries
reflecting my innovative style to produce substantial, effective and striking designs
while considering the physical environment and social sensitivity in contemporary
society. I believe these qualities and skills make me a competent candidate,
motivated to succeed on this course and in future endeavours.
