hello…i just have a question…i know i know…its got nothing to do with ID but i really wanna know something about architecture…especially in british universities…how good do your drawing skills need to be for one to get accepted in an undergraduate program? and if u do need to submit a portfolio…does it have to super-amazing…and wat should it contain…i know it depends upon which uni but generally speaking i wanna know the prerequisites of getting accepted/doing architecture…is it harder or easier to get into than ID…does it require better/similar/lesser drawing skills than ID does etc etc…thanks in advance
and if someone has some reference for architecture stuff/forums please tell me thanks once again
I guess only some very general advice will have to do…
First check the web for admissions policies of any/all schools your interested in regarding portfolios.
Second, you should feel free to contact departments and better still faculty to ask thier opinions.
Third, go see a school in person and try to get some students to talk to you about their admission.
finally - architects are notoriously bad at hand-drawing so don’t sweat it just now.
thank you for ure advice… when u say notoriously bad u mean compared to ppl in ID
yea, in general…
the best thing your portfolio can do for you is show how passionate you are about creativity in general and Architecture specifically. drawings of non-buildings are applicable, people, furniture, landscapes. ID likes to see diversity, not sure about Arch beyond that short list. building models would also be a big boost (from an ID point of view)
