User Submitted Interview Answers

I remember I had a studio in my third year with an architecture tutor. She was particularly difficult to talk with even every class you brought works as much as possible. The only feedback I had from her in first five weeks were simply' you are wrong. This won't work properly.', without any further helpful explanation, even if I keep asking why. I keep changing my works trying to guess her way then I realized I need to be more active and be brave to her attitudes. I brought all of my works there and demanding: You need to give me clear feedback because you are the tutor. Why this is wrong, why this won't work.Otherwise there is no point for me being here.Finally she start work seriously with my works and I managed to pass that studio. From I learn that when sometimes facing difficult person to work with, especially when they are your supervisor or at a higher status, I need to embrace it more bravely and actively.
