Wow, thats long, thats like forever, that is 379 days, that is 58 weeks….this is unbelievable. Thanks to my constantly procrastinating being busy.

Back-to-work

So the holiday is over and its time to get back to work. I am sure i ain’t the only one who struggled to get ready for work this morning, having had the weekend begin on Friday to Monday due to the Eid-el-Fitr holidays. I hope you all had fun.  This was really a long weekend and sleep i did all through. I am glad i did rest but it was so boring and i got thinking of a vacation and where i would love to go to.

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

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

I am starting a new series which i am calling Trending designs. We all know that everyday, there are new design features/ideas that can inspire our designs. It is good to be in the know of what is trending. I would share a design trend once a week (possibly on Thursdays – “Trending Thursdays”). I am hoping it would be interactive, you like or don’t like, would you use or not, is it lovely or not.

The first design trend i would be sharing with you today is the Continue reading

My family has this urgent need to move out from where we live presently and i took it upon myself to scout for a new house (of cos as the Architect in the house, who would have done this better). I really thought this was going to be an interesting or easy task but its been quite very frustrating, annoying and difficult. So i recently sat down to analyse all the houses i have been to and considering, and i realize that non of them are good enough. I am not looking for perfect, just something good enough. One i actually did love, a simple 4 bedroom apartment, nice facade, lovely landscape, nice light fittings (lovely chandeliers and wall scones), had a beautiful pendant light in the balcony, lovely POP ceiling designs, but you wont believe this little 4 bedroom apartment Continue reading

I was reading through dezeen.com, one of my best online architectural magazine, and i saw this News  Chinese president Xi Jinping has called for an end to the “weird architecture” that has come as a result of China’s construction boom. I agree with president Xi Jinping. China has lots of beautiful architecture and lots more weird architecture. Continue reading

I am an Architect as you all know already and i am actually here to share my experiences as an Architect. I definitely would talk about lots of challenges i face daily of which they are a lot. We learn every new day, so i would also talk about new ideas, new findings etc. I also want to use this medium to reach other Architects and hear their own experiences as an Architect.

Truthfully, right now i cant think of any specific topic i would write about but i know its gonna come as the days goes by based on my daily activities. I want to connect with other Architects out there or just that person who understands who an Architect is.

p.s: blogging101 – This was quite difficult for me, it shouldn’t be right? Anyway, here is my first assignment and i also enrolled for writing101.
