Well, we all employ our imaginative capabilities, either consciously or subconsciously as it transits us to another world altogether. Moreover, as I am an architect by profession I get ample opportunities to use my imagination and creativity.
Having said that, one such incident which I profoundly remember is when I was in my graduation year studying architecture. It so happened that we were given a site and entrusted with the task of designing a bungalow on it. Being an unfamiliar terrain for me, even that simple task seemed appalling. However, I recalled having come across some bungalow designs in a magazine. So, I immediately racked up my brain and tried to extract ideas from those designs.
Consequently, the design which I created turned out to be a beautiful amalgamation of those designs and my own imagination. Although it seemed like an uphill task, it felt rewarding when I topped my exams, thanks to that design. All my professors applauded me for my work and effort. To sum it up, it was a great learning experience and it taught me to never give up, come what may. After that, designing ceased to be a harrowing experience for me and instead became an activity that I look forward to with passion and enthusiasm.
Here is the list of the latest cue cards which are released every four months.
