Perspectives on The Life of an Architecture Student

There are two videos that I have found that portray the life of an architecture student - I found this insteresting - two different views with a different tone painting different images that. Not bashing either, just seeing the differences and commonalities is interesting.





For Professors:
The design process is shown as a mystical process to be in awe of wonder. That it is a time of exploration and growing as a designer. Professors narrate the video talking about the benefits of the studio culture and the education from the studio system. The video is composed with a tone that is happy and dandy. Screwing up and making mistakes is not to be feared, it`s the process to grow...time limits of time are not really considered like the other video in this entry.

For the Student:
Shows the beast of the design process, the stress and anxiousness it entails and comes along with it. The design process is revered. The tone and music show a slight sign of chaos and melancholy, but ends with optimism and hope. It kinda reflects our tendencies of to be perfectionistic or our fears of failure as design students.
