yeah, it is becoming quite annoying

and they still have the preference for making architects do everythign first and then for us to "fill in the gaps"

that is so annoying, im sure a few will eventually get the hang of doing it properly though

getting everybody to work together for the most cohesive design

rather than some cool architecture plonked somewhere that then has to be beautified somehow

drone like, I know the feeling, a lot of foreign people I meet here (on the design side of life) are pretty generic and dull (or just old).
I'm trying to shake it up a bit though so I'm enjoying life, my company basically hired me to try and get a completely different approach to design (a bit off the wall).

So I like it, a lot of the work is residential though and the clients can still be quite traditional so don't get to flex the design muscles too much =[ but im working on it!

Anyway, its getting there, more and more projects are going a bit more open so its all good, can be quite cool mashing modern western design with more traditional eastern if the client lets you do it properly. (Feng Shui masters can throw a spanner in the works though if a client hires them first, they tell you to move things about. Like move one corner of a wall 10cm south or that you should have a big stone where you've put the entrance).


Anyway i'll shut up, all in all its not that bad here, can be fun if you get in the right place.

Hey Tim -- I tried sending you a message, but it didn't seem to want to. Anyways, as a CPP alum myself (from just a couple of years back) I've just got to say it was great flipping through your portfolio and seeing how the program has evolved in even just a couple of years in terms of finished graphics. Your stuff looks great. I was wondering what program you use for your 3D rendering? Is it Sketchup + Podium or Kerkethyea? Or is it Rhino + Flamingo? Good luck in your job hunt. I'm just finishing up my master's right now and am back in the same position you are.

Cheers! I was already that far but it's always good when someone points at it again.
