University of East London yang baik hati.

i have just received an e-mail, two emails in fact*grinning* one from UEL. and let me tell u, UEL's approach of offering me a place in their unis touched me. read this, this is their email to me.


many thanks for your application and strong (self-) critical personal
statement as well as glowing academic references and a very interesting
dissertation on Malaysian architecture, which we looked at with great
interest. The way you approcached the topic is similar to how we teach and
your interests of local and modern architecture together with a global
conscience (both environmentally, but also in this world of generalisations
and prejudices which you so critically write about in your published pieces
of work), are ' ethical' standpoints we encourage students to develop and
which are important for an architecture student as a wider reference world to
draw upon in your own work

Your own self- critical approach and carefully thought out personal statement
are admirable, and together makes for a strong application. As a result, we
would love to offer you a place on our course, I will inform the university
and they will send a formal offer out in due course. We think that the course
could offer you the necessary skills to help you negotiate between the
vernacular world and its translation to the 21st century and develop a new
aesthetic language. We mostly have projects in the UK, however for
international students, we are happy and encourage you to work in your own
country and I think this could be very powerful for you. As you [probably
know, we have a very international and diverse group of students and I think
this is something which you will flourish in.

Lastly, some words in Bahasa Indonesia: Saya tinggal di Yogya di tahun
1993-1994 denggan keluarga angkat( Dr. Ir. Toni Atyanto), and we have a quite
a few excellent Malysaian students onb our course and in diploma school -
I can get you in touch with them for a more informal chat if this is
something you wish!? Do let me know .
