Hello Sir,

I'm an Aspiring Architect from Bangalore, India. I've always wanted to become an architect but for Health reasons I'm unable to attend regular college. My doctors told me that I'd be better suited following "Non-traditional" Paths towards my Goals. I need some advice as to what will be the best possible route I can follow in order to become an architect. Please help me out.

More Apps for Architects

Posted on July 2, 2013 at 8:30pm 2 Comments

Its been a while since I last did a roundup of apps for architects. Of all the apps I featured last time Adobe Ideas is my favorite and the one I still actively use. Its time for round 2 and like everything in the tech world, things look better. We have faster tablets and better apps. When I say 'we' I mean other people...I'm still on my first gen iPad and it refuses to grow…


Sketchup Pro 2013 first impressions

Posted on June 2, 2013 at 3:09pm 0 Comments

Sketchup just released a major update after being acquired by Trimble and I'm going hands on to see what's changed besides the name. Speaking of which, Sketchup is now 'Sketchup Make' for non commercial use and Sketchup Pro 8 is upgraded to Sketchup Pro 2013. The Pro version also costs $95 extra towards a compulsory 'one year upgrade/maintenance program'...something on the lines of Autodesk subscription which kind of hints where Trimble is going with all this.

Polished concrete floors do not require any voc spewing glues and adhesives needed to fix carpets or tiles and hence contribute towards improving the indoor air quality.

Polished concrete floors are being increasingly used…

Video of Louis Kahn's Salk Institute by Filmmaker & architect Pablo Casals-Aguirre. It's great to see the masterpiece in action.


In the words of Louis Kahn:

"I did not follow the dictates of the scientists, who said that they are so dedicated to what they are doing that when lunchtime comes all they do is clear away the…
