Why Do People Live At The Studio.

Studios are a sanctuary for architecture student. Without a studio, there will be no home, no classroom, no meet up, no tutorials and  most importantly, no work place. It is so sacred that everything evolves around, within, in between and always cross-path with the studio. We rest our heads on tables, chairs, cut out boxes, mat, old clothes, etc, anything that would provide some-sort of base or cover for our bodies. Today we discuss on why live in studio when you have a bed at home.

1. Work
Submission, crit, presentation, review, crit-like tutorials, all of these can drive architecture student mad of the ridiculous work to be done within the given time frame. Some, with special abilities are able to cope up with the work and produce zestful design ideas and concept, while the norm suffered the deadlines pressure.

2. The studio have air conditioner.
These are proven really handy during hot days (and nights). Although, the air within the studios regulates carbon dioxide is making the air cooler, makes you unhealthy .

3. Free water supply, free internet, free life?
Explains enough.

4. Budak studio
Or.. the studio people, the regulars, ones who often eat,live,breathe studio. They are the essentials that brings life to the studio, the more the merrier, the merrier the better. Those who can't or unable to do work (or focused themselves to do work) often resort to doing work at the studio, such because, when there is people, there are point of reference, and.. when you need a short nap, there are few people who are willing (or unwillingly) wake you back to work.

5. Food
Sometimes, one of the studio ppl would come and bring food from home. Sometime, the subject of hunger can be addictive and we end up eating, rather than doing work. hah-ha. The best times are, when one person decides to go out for a meal, others end up ordering drinks (or food).bungkuih ikat penoh!

6. Stuff
There's a lot of stuff to bring,or to do, for your work. Sometimes they're big and wide (A1 board) sometimes small and handy. We need the space. The downside is; at some point, you'll loose stuff in the studio. always. ;(

I guess, that concludes of all the things i think why do people stay/live in the studio, when you have a bed at home (or rumah sewa).
