My favorite part of this program was definitely meeting with architects across different countries, learning how they worked, why it worked for them, and to gain insight on how their successes can help guide me as an architect. I would also say that becoming good friends with the people in the architecture school was extremely fun and helpful knowing I have 30 more friends to design, discuss, and share memories with through out the school.
My favorite part of the program was how many places we visited. Although it was a lot in a short amount of time, none of it felt rushed. I think the places chosen were excellent examples of architecture that will continue to inspire in the rest of my projects in school and in the actual work force. From Singapore's sustainable design to the traditional designs in Malaysia to unreal buildings in Japan, it was truly incredible.
This program opened my eyes to another side of the world that I have always wanted to travel to. This was my first international flight that I have ever taken. There was some initial anxiety, but I had a great time experiencing new locations and food.
