Architectural Design 9 Thesis Adviser
A Blessed Day!
I, Nowitzki Tramonto, a 5th year BS Architecture student of the University X of the Philippines - College of Architecture and Fine Arts taking up Architectural Design 9 courageously and humbly declare to step down from my current thesis endeavor regarding a bioclimatic edifice initially entitled, ‘BIO-BERDEX: A Tropical Bionic Headquarters Complex for the Philippine Green Building Council.
It has been my practice during the course of thesis writing to stop for a moment and assess my current standing. As the thesis proponent, there are certain aspects of the study that has come to my attention during the course of investigation. The following proved to be indications of the project’s apparent unfeasibility which fundamentally arouse from a proponent-oriented proposal:
- As promising as it may with the organization’s vision and mission for the real estate industry of the country, PHILGBC having been only established in the early 2006 is practically in its infancy.
- Recognition of a sustainably-rated structure by the recently established BERDE building rating system is of the moment not possible. PHILGBC’s implementation programs are still in its pilot stage.
- Identification of the users and its analysis was also a constraint. The number of officials and workers in its current office does not hold up for a potential thesis study. Mere reliance to the company’s projected organizational growth (which is unavailable) would only make the study a prediction and not as timely as it should be.
- And lastly, there have been NO previous initiative, board resolution, or call for open proposals regarding the planned endeavor making the justification of the study blurry and the current status of the study as a viable candidate for a thesis proposal questionable.
Thesis writing has been a truly wonderful experience for me as an undergraduate student of BS Architecture. While it has been a great pleasure in the last couple of months to work on the proposal, I believe that the time has finally come for me to acknowledge the aforementioned road blocks that have been my concern since the beginning. I am looking forward for a better endeavor next year.
You have been a very gracious adviser, Sir. Thank you very much for your generosity and support in this academic venture.
