“Communication and Efficiency”
I am thinking that I should manage more effectively all the design projects especially retained through winning design competitions after I took charge of Design Studio 3 newly in 2018. ‘Communication and efficiency’ are very important in architectural design because, after all, design is creating results by communicating with people in different disciplines and positions.
