My young interior architect candidate friend. I had to pause my undergraduate education in 1996-1997 school year. Until 2011-2012 school year, in which I took advantage of the amnesty and started my undergraduate education at Yaşar University, Interior Architecture and Environmental Design again, I’d had a lot of practice in various points of the construction process. I’d gotten married and had kids. But this had always stayed as a responsibility within me, and being forty years old certainly wasn’t an obstacle for being a university student again.
For as long as I can remember; drawings, designs, places, aesthetic elements, and even materials related to these subjects have always interested and excited me. If you have mutual feelings about these things, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy attending to Yaşar University, Interior Architecture and Environmental Design.
My application to Yaşar University Interior Architecture and Environmental Design via the amnesty is one of the most important milestones in my life for me. With the drawing techniques, modeling, material and structure classes, it’s made me more correct in a lot of the self-taught work that I’d been doing, and more careful in the technical decisions; and thus, increased the value of the work that I have been doing.
In this process, sacrifice and support of all my faculty teachers have made me keep going from many giving up points with more powerful energy and desire. In fact, this desire and energy brought the required GPA to apply to double major program in its wake. I got the opportunity to get my second undergraduate degree from Architecture.
During this education process; the technical classes, workshop and studio studies and seminars that I’d taken showed me what I earned in the things that I had already been doing, things that I was trying to do, and the things that I was going to do. For me, Interior Architecture is the difference between my perception when I looked at a place and the my perception after these classes, and evaluating this difference.
Yes, my dear candidate friend, the path to the Interior Architecture degree is filled with days that are difficult and sleepless. But the education and support that you will get from these incredible educators will be your most important gain, and after that, enjoying a project that you’ve finished will be your biggest pleasure.
For me, Interior Architecture and Architecture is humans, who are a point in the universe, walking their own path, creating their own lines, and designing better living environments from those lines.
May your line be your life.
