Its been ages i did a post here. Keeping up with this blog is sincerly difficult, how do you guys who blog do this? Today being the last day of 2015, i decided to write on designs i think trended the most this 2015. We saw a lot of designs trend, some would actually stay and trend more in 2016, some would fade away.

I once wrote about the trellis trending Continue reading

Its August already!. I feel like the year is going so fast. Still so much to do, so little achieved. In the spirit of the new month i want to drop a few words to architects who for one reason or another is loosing motivation and is wanting to give up and quit. Architecture is difficult. Architecture is demanding. The long hours without control of your personal schedules, the low income despite the amount of time and energy put into this practice, the expensive and time-consuming educational and licensing requirements…..the list could go on and on. All these and more is enough to get your motivation to practice architecture crashing.  Continue reading

Its 3:30am and i had to actually force myself to get up and write this post. Its not about not having a topic to write about or because i am sleepy, its due to the lack of motivation. I simply lack motivation to do just about anything not just to blog. My motivation is so low, i practically have to drag myself to do things i have to do. What motivates you daily to do the things you do? Continue reading

It seems like ages i have been here. A friend told me recently that I am so consistent with my inconsistency. Wow……that really hurt. Apparently, she had been coming to my blog for a month now and no new post day after day, week after week, and then she called, sounding really angry on the phone, wanting to know why i haven’t updated my blog in a month now. Why really? We all know how it is being an Architect. Continue reading

Anyone you ask would tell you that Architects do lots of drawings. Yes this is true but the misconception here is that most people really do think that is all we do – just drawings. This is what i want to clarify in this post. We do a whole lot more than just draw. So what do Architects do? Continue reading

Its a new month, not just any month but the last month of the first half of 2015. What have you achieved so far? How close are you to your goals for 2015? Have you followed your action plans accordingly? It is important that we review our lives and progress time after time, this actually helps you grow. When you are able to determine how far you have gone, you are able to know what your obstacles have been, what held you back and write down more action plans or adjust existing to help you move closer to your goals for 2015. Remember, these goals must not just be financial, or business goals…..it could also be spiritual goals, relationship goals etc. Are you where you planned to be? Continue reading

I attended the Unique Interiors Exhibition which took place last week Wednesday to Friday at the Federal palace hotel, Victoria island, Lagos. This was a very interesting event and the exhibition was the part i really enjoyed the most. I usually enjoy exhibitions as such because its a great avenue to see and know about new materials and ideas in the building industry. More interesting is the amount of discounts you could get from such exhibitions. Yes i love to get them at a cheaper rate, always love to, i’m sure everyone else loves that as well. Continue reading

Do you ever think of participating in a design competition, be it local or international? Have you ever participated in any competitions? I know of some architects who have participated in design competitions but they are very few or probably i have not come across many architects who have participated in one. How many design competitions do we have in Nigeria? I know we have a lot of international competitions, what about locally? How often are they done? Continue reading
