Please evaluate last correction of my statement.
I do not have words limit so I decided to write for two A4 pages.
When you are surrounded by splendid environment it positively contributes into your daily life as well. Nevertheless, I have experienced the opposite side of this by living in Russia. Now my continuing lifelong goal is to change regional standard of living through develop better communication between city environment and local public, yet I know that this is impossible without the exploration of alternative construction approaches at a variety of scales and consider them in relation to climate, urban situation, and the natural environment. In view of this, it is my dream to pursue and further my level of studies on the elegant design of structure and be educated on design principles at Dalhousie University as my prior education background and experience have made me an exceptional candidate for the Bachelor of Environment Design in the Faculty of Architecture and Planning.
From my childhood to my teenage years I had encountered with all sorts of visual arts. I attended a local art school for 5 years, and participated in a variety of original Russian art fields such as wooden and fabric painting, as well as developed traditional skills in drawing, painting , and sculpture. Consequently by attending a pre-professional Architecture College in Russia and studying at Moscow Architecture Institute I had cultivated an appreciation for architecture as a form of art and found my further carrier.
My education was not just about getting degree. In Moscow College of Architecture I preoccupied myself with the study of Digital Medias which landed me with perfect tools for the presentation of my creative ideas. At the same time by exploring associated technical fields of architect's job I dealt with my graduation projects which required a wider range of expertise. As my post secondary academic provider has an exclusive pathway into the top of Architecture University in my country I was enrolled to Moscow Architecture Institute without exams. However, working as an architect technician I could not manage to follow the aggressive curriculum more than one year and finally had to choose between theory and practice. Unfortunately, I opted for the latter as I had thought that my knowledge and skills enough to pursue my true passion in architecture domain. Now I do realize that certain aspects remain elusive and I seem not to have much formal education background about the role and place of architect in society.
Nonetheless, I gained the foundation necessary to place me directly into the architecture field. Working at a large architecture bureau, I realized that Russian studious often tended to work in conjunction with bigger development companies for developing their projects in order to get more money and do not care about building defined performance standards, do not consider issues of sustainability with regard to energy balance and conservation of nature by using components materials. Moreover, there exist a lack of common criteria in the profession of architect except the price, which lead clearly to urban mistakes. However, all of these issues traditionally had been accomplished in the past with apply alternative knowledge and experience by inviting foreign architects to develop correct urban environment in Russia. Therefore, I gain to develop the network of connections with the larger international architecture and actually want to continue my education on a larger scale.
To pose myself intellectually in relation to various physical and cultural contexts I have faced many opportunities to improve my knowledge independently and increase my attention span.. Past 10 years I have visited many famous places with diversity of architecture styles, from modern Asian architecture (Hong-Kong and Singapore) to ancient Europe( Egypt, Spain, Germany),even in the Oceanic region (New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia) where I prepared my English communication skills and explore local aboriginal art and architecture landmarks which reflects a particularly wide diversity of cultural backgrounds. However, I could not explore one of the most important goals that I wanted to gain and finally implement them in my country., creative thinking , which is also an important area that architects must address in their profession. Next step was to find a place where I would be educated by such essential skills.
Canada was a choice of similarity to my country as they both share almost similar climate conditions, and so construction of architecture forms requires following resemble construction norms and usage of materials. In addition a famous in Russia author of Two Hulls House( Brian MacKay-Lyons) seems to be one of the reason why I choose Canadian architecture schools. What appeals to me about the Architecture course offered at Dalhousie University is the range of flexibility, with profession practice and theory to suit my interests in real projects and first-hand technological experience which will bring rapid benefits and enrich my knowledge and skills. I recognize that my acceptance to this program is an investment for the future, and I believe that my future goals and the desire to reach them make me a valuable investment for Dalhousie university .My professional experience, broad academic training, background and style would be of benefit to the School of Architecture, as would my desire to personally progress and help my country and citizens do the same. I am confident that my acceptance into the Architecture program at Dalhousie University will prove to be a mutually beneficial decision and would certainly affect global architecture community in the future as this interaction between architecture schools is able to approach the quality and reach better results for contemporary architecture.
