There were many questions among ourself, among young designer, fresh graduates, and students in the last sound of OMAH discussion : Finding the Little Prince.

What is your dream in this profession?
Do all the things you dream previously has been reached?
How is the journey in your practice as a young architectural designer?

OMAH is gladly hosting new continuous lecture after the discussion about the Little Prince. The lecture is about sharing the kit to survive as an architect with sharing principles by not considering any luck at all, the principle is elaborated based on common questions in the previous discussions among fresh graduates :

How to be an architect,
How much should I get paid?
How to get your income as an architect?
Are we left behind than other East Asian countries in term of wage, especially Singapore?
How to get your first client?
And how to set your design fee?
How to survive, maintaining the cash flow of your own expense?

Then, this lecture: Architecture Survival Guide will be the introduction of 2 streams that is introduced by OMAH, the first is stream critic, and stream design.

The first critic stream one elaborates our thinking side as an architect, and the second, stream design elaborates our capabilities in practice as an architect. Two of them is combined become the heart of the architect. It’s not a heroic story about star architects, idols, or just a hypocrisy of how great we are, many people have said that, it’s about survival as an architects, elaboration of set of skill,

Little prince is the story of the little prince to find the roses which something that you really passionate about and about himself as well. The little prince journey can be similar with the journey of – architects – who find a strange way in our design practice and workplace. Architects usually have a strong idealism and encountering so many unexpected circumstances. Who we are, what has been done, how wishful thinking us to be confronted with the question of what, who, and in which we poured it all and able to directing us to be positive. The answers to these questions are sometimes answered well by the time. This is where persistence determination and ideals needed.
