The Twelfth Annual Berkeley Undergraduate Prize for Architectual Design Excellence 2010
Berkeley Prize 2010

Yiğitcan Karanfil

"The reason I started studying architecture was that I thought it to be a creative profession and I considered myself as a creative person. Idea of designing, creating something attracted me. Now, I’ve been studying architecture for almost four years and my motives and interests have changed a lot through this period.

I discovered that I usually get too caught up on unimportant points to be an effective designer.  I also discovered is that I’m actually a lot more interested in and better at other aspects of architecture such as theory, philosophy, photography and so on.

I have one more year until I graduate. I hope to read a lot, improve myself, and pursue my interests in thinking, discussing, reviewing and taking photos of architecture"
