12 years of schooling, 2 years of high school and 6 years of undergraduate course, all these have created a remarkable memory inside my heart and memory. Final 1825 days of architecture course I can never forget where half a dozens of back paper, NQ certificates (failure certificates) surrounded my concentration and passion in architecture. I can hardly remember my success eras during these 5 years except the recently concluded final year thesis defence. Final 35 minutes Thesis defence was a moment to list it as a productive session during my entire life. I thank to entire crew member behind the scene and whole final year jury member for constructive criticism.
I would like to mention my deep sense of appreciation for Artudio family especially my mentor Kailash K Shrestha, Biken Ranjit and Chemi dorje where I learned element of art which guided me to further realize the architecture world through art and photography.
