Having completed the RIBA Part 1 and gained lots of experience in design and associated work, I now wish to take the next step towards my goal of becoming a qualified architect and see your programme as being the ideal means of doing so. Thus, I hope very much to earn the master's degree in architecture at XXXX University.


I have thoroughly enjoyed the work that I have undertaken to date but, naturally, hope to progress to the full role of professional architect. My work has involved several projects, roles and tasks including design, preparation of plans, interior, time spent on the construction site, and liaison with clients and regulatory authorities. I believe that this experience, with my undergraduate degree, provides an excellent foundation for success in the programme and beyond.


The meld of aesthetic, engineering and computational skills and knowledge are an ideal fit for my talents and interests which I hope to apply to achieve my own personal and, I believe considerable, professional potential and to provide an excellent service to my future employers and clients.

I am excited by the way that rapid advances in technology have increased public expectations regarding their communities and the buildings constructed in those communities. One expects buildings to be designed and constructed according to rigorous standards of workmanship and safety. Thus, I shall always labour to account for those features that may enable financial efficiency and enhance user satisfaction.

I’m particularly interested in the free-form possibilities permitted by the CAD software change not only the method of designing but also the design itself. Digital design has had a direct influence on the vocabulary of forms used in architecture. Free form models are realized into building-creating design. Without computer simulation and the use of precise CNC manufacturing, these forms could not have been realized. Frank O. Gehry is a good example, a pioneer in the application of digital information to the representation and realisation of complex buildings and the further potential provided by the digital revolution.


I have skills in making physical models and the latest CAD software including AutoCAD, 3D’s Max, Rhino and Revit. I am currently learning how to use Grasshopper as I intend to incorporate parametric design in future projects.

I regard the responsibilities of an architect are quite breath-taking, combining as they do so many disparate skills and considering the needs of so many with direct and indirect interests in a project. Architecture is fundamentally important in everyone’s life; it impacts on the daily environment of many, and its fruits will stand for generations. I am particularly excited at the rate and kind of developments being achieved in tools, materials and techniques and I devoted part of my undergraduate research to such ideas. I see architectural research as fundamental in improving the well-being of all in its scope. I also note that the skills and characteristics of an architect overlap with those called for in effective research. These include critical thinking, exceptional ­planning skills, the setting of challenging but achievable goals, collaboration, originality, and creativity. I certainly hope to play a part in future advances in the field. 


I seek a highly challenging but supportive programme and regard yours as the ideal ‘fit’ for my purposes. I am drawn by the prestigious reputation of the department and its faculty, the opportunity for involvement in real projects and the connections with prominent practitioners and firms. I am also impressed by the ‘cutting-edge’ teaching facilities, the professional success of faculty members and graduates and the curriculum content. As an Iranian who is well-travelled, I am aware of the importance of cultural norms and expectations in building design, I am also drawn by the emphasis on such considerations in the curriculum. I feel that I shall certainly be able ‘add value’ to the programme in the matter of cultural considerations as well doing so from my professional exposure and experience of digital applications.


To summarise: I hold a relevant degree and have acquired broad relevant experience; I have experience of successfully applying the most recently developed digital tools; and I have research experience which I am very keen to extend. However, my main recommendation is my genuinely passionate interest in architecture and the exciting developments both in progress and ahead of us.


Thank you for considering my application to Architecture at XXXX University.
