First Moment when you realized you wanted to be an Architect

I became interested in arts ever since I was little, I drew portraits here and there and I stumbled across buildings as one of the assignments for art class. I was intrigued ever since. Designing & articulating non-existing spaces to exist is something that significantly interests me.
