My name is Ahndya Chita Sekar Anggriti, but everybody calls me Anggit. I was born in Jakarta, raised up there until I graduated from high school. I am currently studying in Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember majoring in Architecture, Surabaya. What motivates and inspires me to be an architect, is my father. He is an engineer who is working in PT Wijaya Karya. Since I was a kid, I love to see when my father doing his sketch. My father ever told me, to think about what I want to be in the future, he explained me about his job, but he also suggested me to be an architect proudly because he knew that I love drawing. Basically, as I grew older, I was always watching TV shows that have designed, whether is was interior or exterior details about house content.
Now, when I am studying architecture, my mindset and knowledge have been improving. I can see what architecture means, it is not always about “art”, it also is about things that can be “measured” or has “rules”. That’s what I found interesting, till my lecturers always said that I got a unique concept in my projects, the unthinkable ones. As a third year student, I have been doing few tasks. I am always able and willing to work long hours to meet a deadline. Sometimes it makes me a detail oriented, with a good problem solving. The lecturers told all the students, to improve our knowledges, not only in the design, but also in the structures, the systems inside, and everything that connected in our building, outside the campus. RAW Architecture has been one of the great architecture firm in the architecture industry and it would be my honor and privilege to intern inside.
The benefit and prospect of apprenticing in RAW are quite exciting as I know that the firm also concerns in the urban context which is also one of my big interests. The residential, dwelling projects with great concepts, also the exhibition that is held, it is very interesting because RAW firm did a design basic on research. also In RAW, I want to learn about doing a project from designing, doing the progress, until it finishes in the real of work place. I want to apply and improve my skills in using software for design, even master on it, especially on AutoCAD and any software for rendering, and the other software that I can learn, the soft skills, about how to work together professionally, with other friends, with a great attitude. Beside them, I want to know and try to learn about the obstacle solving when we do the tasks, how we can manage them, even in the pressure condition. The time management, to do all the steps in a real work condition also motivates me to join this firm. So that, I really hope that I can join & do the architectural things together in RAW.
Thank you for your attention.
