As of right now, my dream school and only school I wish to attend is Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. For college day last year, my advisory went to visit and I fell in love. Not only did it have the majors I am interested in, architecture, architectural engineering and engineering, it had plenty of bikes and modern buildings. Many architects have gone to Cal Poly SLO. Along with Eric Naslund and John Sheehan; the principals of Studio E Architects. Coming into this internship, I wanted to have an open mind to help me explore new possibilities that may come my way. As I was talking to one of my colleagues who has attended a school in Italy and another intern from Italy, they mentioned the difference between the schools in Italy and the US. I never thought about study abroad options but after talking to them, I want to do more research of my own. Architecture is architecture no matter where are, but depending on where you are, you can learn so much more. Every culture has their unique styles and being able to recognize their styles is something I want to learn more about. As I mentioned earlier, I really like Cal Poly SLO because of their modern buildings. This is a preference that I have noticed while visiting different campuses, but in order to be a good architect, I will have to be able to design things that the clients and community want. Not necessarily what I would want. An architect who was critiquing a Southwestern college student blatantly said, "This design is very selfish. Everything is what you would want and not what a Cancer Wellness Center visitor would want." That doesn't mean I have to like other styles, it just means I have to be able to appreciate and respect it. Now that I have seen what an architect does, I know this is the career I want to pursue.
