My name is Amber Wu.

I am from Shenzhen in the south of China.
The faculty which I want to study in is Architectural Design.

One of my reasons is that I am a creative person because when I was a child I loved painting and designing some creative things,which were very funny and always attracted my friends' attention.

My father is an architect too .He is looking forward me to joining his company in the future.

It is widely known that Romans were good at architecture and engineering. Jones. (2014) states that “Before the Romans, the most commonly building style was the post and lintel. This way of building was of course limited in the weight it could carry and therefore the span between the supports. "Also Columns and Arches are the essential elements in Roman's building. Roman used it to hold up huge and heavy buildings.

Alchin.(2014). believes that "The history of Ancient Roman Architecture was divided into two distinctive eras. The first era was of the Republic where the origins of the architecture of the Romans can be traced to the Etruscans, who migrated from Asia Minor to Italy in the 12th Century BC. The second era started in 27BC and is classed as the period of the Empire. "
The reason why the Romans were good at architecture is that they had a variety of regional sources and styles. Because they had capture so many different tribes and countries as part of their empire (Alchin. 2014).

Architecture engages with the design, theory and practice of making spaces and environments for human activity. The profession of architecture has an extensive history as a practice and academic discipline. Developed from an apprenticeship model of professional education, workplace experience is still a requirement for professional registration and recognition of architects. This historic relationship with workplace learning still strongly informs architectural education at QUT.

Architecture closely relates to built environment and urban planning disciplines such as civil and structural engineering, quantity surveying, and property economics and management

Woods are one of the most universally applied construction materials in the world.

Architectural Record.(2014) argues that “In recent years, technical advances have given birth to a wide range of process innovations, such as CNC milling and off-site assembly, as well as engineered-wood products with enhanced performance properties.”

Therefore, designers have new interest in wood and have started to explore "its aesthetic appeal, structural potential and environmental value."
(Architectural Record ,2014)
Parametricism, which is a style rooted in digital animation techniques ,has become the dominant design style in the 21th century.Schumacher.(2008).In its simplest form it means computer assisted architectural design.Furthermore,this style claims relevance on all scales from architecture and interior design to large scale urban design.(Schumacher.2008).
Location: Pisa, Italy
Architect: Several Hands at Work
Year: 1372
--Olympic Stadium (The Bird's Nest)
Location: Beijing, China
Architect: Herzog,de Meuron&Li Xinggang
Year: 2008
This stadium impressed people most in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Now, it's the center of international or domestic sports competition and recreation activities (Excellence in Tours.2014).

This Olympic Stadium is one of the few sporting venues that truly stands as the symbol of a city.

Herzog and de Meuron.(2008) states that "This design was the relationship of covered spaces,of architecture to the park and to nature."
Meanwhile ,they put the highest value on the interspace between inside and outside .so this is the entire 3D structure.As a result,this structure almost breathes.

Craven.(n,d) attests that"The Tower of Pisa was designed as a bell tower (campanile) but its main purpose was to visually attract people to the cathedral in the town of Pisa. "

The reason why this building is famous is that it has kept its informal tilt for nearly 1000 years. According to historical records the building was interrupted by wars and when this was resumed,the tower was already leaning at an angle (Craven.n,d).
