    Idol's, masters, and their work ethics

    How can we educate ourselves from the people who we look up to and use it to our own benefit for architecture? Many students in the field of architecture have different hobbies, most involving people who we consider our idols. In this case, Kobe Bryant and other great athletes including different artists have all worked hard to get themselves in a position of excellence they’re known for. This is because all the people who we look up to have a different mentality than the norm, they use their free time to learn more about their craft, they are always in a state of constantly improving to get better and doing more than the next guy to master the profession.

     Why is this important? In order to become very skillful in architecture or the path that we choose, we can easily learn what separates the people who are master’s at their craft from the average person. So why not set our mentality as theirs for the better, even though they have a different career path. For example, we can work hard long hours to improve and become more efficient in the work that we produce. This also ties to the mentality of pushing forward even when we feel we are at a breaking point; this is an important skillset to develop because we can become more productive, and it can only lead us to do more than the other person. We can also do work related activities that our idols themselves do in their craft, in this case we can do studio related work such as reading, drawing, and watching videos, and more to master and dominate our craft and eventually expand our knowledge to think about issues that haven’t been considered as much as they should in architecture.

    This is important to architecture students because we still need learn how to master a design that is beneficial for people. We need to learn how to make architecture respond to climate justice which we are recently trying figure out in school. This is one issue that architecture has faced, many buildings are created but do not respond to the climate issues or communities. We are recently learning that there are issues and we as future architects need to be responsible for and only from our work ethics, we can only expect we will in one day get closer in finding a solution for climate issues by our own architecture.

    By following the work ethics that our idols have we can also use it to our own use in our career, working hard, training our mindsets can only make us gain knowledge and improve our work to get a certain level of proficiency. Hopefully, in the nearby future we can find a solution to climate issues.
