Travis Scott, the charismatic and trendsetting artist, is known for his musical prowess. However, the ‘La Flame’ has more than just beats and lyrics up his sleeve. In a recent interview with Chris Heath for GQ, Scott revealed his plans to dive into the realm of architectural design after his Circus Maximus Tour.
From Music to Architecture
Scott has always been a multifaceted personality. While his music has been captivating audiences worldwide, architecture, it seems, has been silently brewing in his heart. He plans to enroll at one of the most prestigious institutions in the world – Harvard University – to pursue his architectural dreams.
“I’m going to Harvard for architecture school,” he said, noting that he’s already taken a couple of visits to the school and has researched the admissions process. “I got to work hard to get in. They’re not letting me take any shortcuts.”
The Transition Phase
The transition from music to architecture is not going to be a cakewalk. However, Scott is ready to embrace this challenge head-on. He plans to begin his architectural journey as soon as his ongoing tour concludes.
Scott is not just dabbling in architecture; he plans to move to Boston and study full-time for four years to master this new passion. The dedication and commitment Scott shows towards his new venture are indeed commendable.
The Fascination with Structures
Scott’s interest in architecture isn’t a sudden revelation. He’s been intrigued by structural design and engineering for quite some time.
Interestingly, architecture wasn’t Scott’s first non-musical interest. As a child, he was fascinated by the idea of becoming a nephrologist. He was inspired by a friend’s uncle who was a nephrologist.
“I was like, Yeah, I want to be that.”
However, his love for music eventually took center stage, and he dropped out of the University of Texas at San Antonio to pursue his musical career. Scott also reflected on the Astroworld Festival crowd crush in 2021, which resulted in the death of ten of his fans. He expressed his devastation over the incident and how it affected his music-making process.
Travis Scott‘s journey is a testament to his individuality and his relentless pursuit of different passions. His decision to study architecture at Harvard is a bold move that further cements his unique persona. As fans, we can only wait to see how he amalgamates his love for music and architecture in the future.
Whether it’s his music or his newfound love for architecture, one thing’s for sure – Travis Scott will continue to break boundaries and inspire millions with his creativity and nonconformity.
