5 Ways to develop professionally during quarantine
Learn a BIM program
Learn a BIM program let it be Archicad or Revit. In our previous article from Aurora Baba, we explained all the reasons why an architect should pass from programs like autocad to BIM ( building information model). We believe that now, this situation is the right moment to dedicate to learn a new program which also gives the possibility to fragmentise the work so you can work on the same file even if you are not physically near to the team (like in the situation we are now). In case you want to learn Archicad or Revit, Graphisoft has a youtube channel where you can learn the programs step by step.
2.Enhance your graphic design skills
4. Learn about history of architecture
Open Yale Courses, is a fantastik program. Just as you were in the Yale university auditorium you can choose one of their programs, such as Roman Architecture and widen your knowledge. There are a lot of interesting courses, like physocology, ecnomoy ..etc and you can choose one.
In case you don’t find something of your interest there, you have always the option to find it on Coursera or Udenmy.
5. Read about architecture
Last, always reading a book is a very good option, there are very interesting architecture books, but you maybe would want to shift to arts or romans. We suggest you The fountainhead by Ayn Rand, an interesting book about an architect who seeks to create an architecture that represents the time that he lives in, detaching hisself from the classic architecture.
Or you can choose to read a bit more about art like:
Point and Line to Plane by Kandinsky
Or Invisible City by Italo Calvino, which will surely fuel your fantasy!
The Source of Life by Ayn Rand, who at the center has an architect and idealistic approach to architecture to exemplify the culture and development of society
Use this situation in your favor by reinforcing your knowledge and your abilities! Stay home, stay safe and keep learning!
