First Moment when you realized you wanted to be an Architect
Probably around 10 when I went to art camp. I wasn’t good at drawing or painting, but I was good at building things so I took ceramics and basket weaving. I could take a simple material that wasn’t anything on its own and construct it into something I could actually use. I liked it because I could show off all the ~super cool~ bowls and baskets I made, but those classes actually began to teach me the basic principles of design and materiality that I still use today.
