The University of Texas at Austin has extensive resources that encourage research in various fields to further advance technology in architecture and other curricula. First, the Architecture and Planning Library has numerous research collections ranging from digital, visual to literature resources in architecture, preservation, and planning, with 20,000 volumes of unique, contextually special, and significant collections. With these materials and my unquenchable thirst for knowledge, I will tirelessly strive to gain new insights into various aspects and predicaments currently facing our planet to conduct relevant research that can provide prompt solutions. One of such alarming issues is climate change, and with such resources at my disposal, the cry for help from our planet will be dealt with effectively.
The field of Architecture has an immense role to play in all this, considering that climate change begins with the mere acts of pollutions, congestion, and overcrowding in the world’s major cities (Sood & Osbeck 421). These cases have drastic implications for the health status of city residents. It takes proper urban planning and architecture to fix such issues, ultimately creating a sustainable habitat for all. Once I join the venerated University of UT, I would ensure that I use my top-notch creativity and research to develop designs that dwell entirely on renewable energy and natural light to alleviate overreliance on carbon as a source of energy in buildings (Sood & Osbeck 421). It provides a solution to the issue of climate change as renewable energy is environmentally friendly and makes these designs cheaper and affordable, considering that these energy sources are readily available. With the immense desire to progressively improve my acquisition of knowledge, skills, and expertise in architecture, UT will make my dream of changing the world to be a better place for habitation come true.
