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.
