I don’t really know how to do this
I guess to begin I will warm up with a little about my life at the moment and see where that leads.
My name is Alex Tahinos. I am an architecture student first and foremost. My future profession is architecture but I really don’t consider anyone to be an architect until they have truly mastered their own style. I have developed a love for architecture and have decided I will devote my life and all of my time to the art of architecture.
At the moment I am very confused.
I have been in school my entire life. I have worked odd jobs and summer jobs at malls and hardware stores. I have never stepped into the real world. My budgeting skills suck, my time management is pretty rough, and my morning rituals don’t really exist. That being said, I have recently moved to Amsterdam for my first job (actually a long-term internship) and I have to say that it has begun to confuse me.
I am starting this blog for answers. Answers to questions I have about architecture, about art, about philosophy, about society, maybe about politics, and mostly about life.
I guess as an introduction I will begin by trying out my new mantra:
I am an architect at heart.
Searching for questions, striving for solutions, and taking what I can.
I believe in design as something to be ultimately earned,
I believe that Architecture is War and War is Architecture,
and I believe that once more we will witness great Cathedrals rise.
