Lessons after 1st semester of Architecture School

Fall of 2018 was my first semester of my industrial design eduction in the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture at the University of Houston. It was a fundamentals semester and included so many various learning experiences which not only apply do education, but all aspects of life. These are those lessons.

  • Don’t dwell on any projects

  • Don’t be afraid to pivot an idea

  • Fail Fast

  • Be aware of your weaknesses

  • Build a daily schedule for yourself that works for you

  • You have done something completely or you haven’t done it. No middle ground

  • Commit to a design process

  • The tough or boring parts of creation is all part of the process. You have to deal with it in order to get the right product.
