An Unofficial Guide for UKM Architecture Interview



Since the majority of my recent readers "accidentally" reached my blog to look for UKM architecture interview, I'll happily write a thing or two about what you should know about the interview this Saturday 25th (I know it's already 23rd, hopefully some of you are still searching for this info haha)

The interview process has gone through some changes throughout the years, (I'm in my final semester now) so I'm not 100% sure about what you will expect this weekend (I'm not the interviewer either) I can safely say that this is my best prediction.

Based on last year, all the interviewees (100-200 each year) will be placed into a room, which they will be given several random objects on the screen (I don't really remember what are last year's - there are five - a PDA, motorcycle, watch, woman, etc) and they will be asked to draw a building - inspired by THREE of the five objects. There's also an essay part - usually a very general question such as "Apakah pandangan anda tentang senibina" (again, this is last year's), to be answered in an hour.

Next, the drawing part. Interviewees will be divided into smaller groups, each will be brought to a location around the faculty. There, you'll be asked to draw the "designated scene". Be sure to learn how to sketch in 3d perspective (please refrain yourself from using ruler, do as much freehand as you can. the ability to do shading is a bonus). I'm telling you, this is your deal breaker.

Finally, the "the-scariest-part", the interview. Each group will wait their turn into the the rooms, to face their group's interviewer (and before that, a little colour blind test). Questions may vary for each interviewer, but basically they will ask you about your "passion" in architecture, your favourite building and why, and architects that you knew of. Tips: Make sure you study about Frank Lloyd Wright, Ken Yeang, Malaysian architectural identity and sustainable architecture. Dont: Mention either KLCC or Putrajaya as your favourite building. As you'll learn later, you'll know why.

Hopefully I won't be asked to remove this entry. Haha. Good luck. Architecture is fun.
