First of all, I want to say thanks to Mr. Realrich Sjarief who gave me the opportunity to join Summer Workshop Programme at RAW Architecture. I also want to say thanks to all my seniors who works with me during Summer Workshop Programme. It’s a great experience for me to be able join it.
Through this workshop, I got a lot of new friends from other university. I also make friends with seniors from RAW architecture. We learned, shared, and played together like a family. I got a lot of advice that very useful for me in the future. They also motivated me the eagerness to learn something new and never stop to learn. During this workshop, I really felt that I got a new family.
In the first week of Summer Workshop, I tend to make a mistake because I’m still adapting with the working atmosphere. But in the end, I improved a lot thanks to my seniors who guided and helped me patiently. During this workshop, I learned to design a lot of projects like villa, guest house, driving range, etc. I realized the difference between designing at university and designing at the office. At the university we can explore more our ideas and design it according to what we want. But at the office, we need to design it according to what the clients want and we must design it with more rational according to the function and context so that the budget can be minimalized. I learned to work as a team and work fast. We were taught to use the time wisely. Beside that, I also learned how to drafting, rendering, layouting, presenting the presentation, etc according to the standard that RAW architecture had. It will be very useful for me when I go back to university. I can apply the standard to every project that I got so that I can make the product of my project more informative and complete than before.
It’s a pleasure for me could join this Summer Workshop Programme. I never regret I’ve been here to learned for the past 1,5 months. Thanks RAW architecture. Thanks for the unforgettable experience and knowledge that you gave to me.
