All these and more is enough to get your motivation to practice architecture crashing.  Continue reading

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

Do you ever think of participating in a design competition, be it local or international? Have you ever participated in any competitions?

Its a public holiday today and tomorrow, thanks to the Sallah break. Before i forget my manners, Happy Eid-El Kabir to all my Muslim friends and Muslim Architects. I saw lots of rams being slaughtered on Saturday, didn’t get to taste any though.

My post today might not seem acceptable because you probably have deigns to finish, lots of works pilled up on your desk, etc, but i intend to motivate you to take some time out today and rest…..yeah i know, you’ve deadlines.
