And in the beginning...

Well, I finally decided to take the plunge and start blogging.

I decided to do it inspired by other’s blogs and websites, I will share any interesting experiences at work and life related to architecture and building information modelling – BIM.

This time will not be the exception, so let’s get to it.

My Short Story...

nando-finally


I started this unusual international working experience by pure luck, serendipity, randomness; I was and working in my home country doing this, trying that, wondering how architects somewhere around the world face the projects and design challenges I was dealing with.

I wanted to travel and see the classic, the new, the old cities, the famous buildings by myself, but more than that I wanted to know how they designed it, how they build it. Was it very different from what I was doing?

The cool part of this story is that it became true. As in January 2005, five years ago I started an Architectural Adventure; I moved with my wife from Colombia to South Africa, to participate in a large-scale project for the FIFA world cup, I have to thank Mr. Victor Utria who “unplugged” me from my working routine in Bogotá and took me to Durban; without his help none of this adventures may have had happened.

Since then I have worked in South Africa, Canada, China, and have had projects in India and Trinidad & Tobago as well. I can say I have satisfied my curiosity to some point and have learned a great deal of different things, the kind of things they don’t teach at architectural school: wide-angle worldview.

Form now on I will keep posting weekly or biweekly (Tuesdays), on anything related to this adventure.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Best Regards
