Hello, my name is Fahry Triza Nugraha. And I just have finished my internship at RAW Architecture.
It’s been one of the best journey in my life that I can work in this office. Four months flew so fast, I hope I can stay longer. I learned so much during my 4 months internship in here, like the way of thinking about architecture, the way of thinking when we design, and about how important our hard skill and soft skill in architecture world.
I realize that there’s a lot of knowledge about materials, construction or structure, and small details on the design that can actually enrich our knowledge when design a building. I also learned about how important a good communication is in running an architecture firm, and the importance of quick and precise decision-making on the field (thanks to the last-minute conversation with Kak Rich) is needed by an architect as a leader in both the studio and the field.
And one of the things that I really admired in RAW Architecture, is the lively and fun environment in office. I always believed that an organization or team would be great and powerful if it was based on the strong connections and family feelings of its members, things or challenges that come will always be passed with fun and satisfying also. And when I join RAW Architecture, I immediately know that this office is a great and powerful office.
Everyone here is so great, funny, and always want to be better. There is no social difference or negative gap between juniors and seniors, all merging into one. You can joke with everyone here, even with Kak Rich though. I can also ask anything to anyone in this office without feeling reluctant, because I know I can learn from everyone here.
Lots of memories that I will missed in RAW Architecture. Working late into the night with designers and associates until everyone goes crazy, chasing deadlines till 2 AM, chat session and brown bag, badminton and futsal (which finally can be done, yeah!), watching movie together, and one that I will always remember — “cebur-ceburan” into swimming pool. In fact, I’ve even been splashed for 4 times — it means once a month, a stand-alone record hahaha.
Thanks to all my internship friends, who have accompanied me and always encouraged each other while working. It’s always fun to tell stories and laugh with you guys. Downstairs will never be more interesting without you all.
Thanks to all the designers and associates, who have guided me, teach me and always brought joy and fun in the office. Always be funny and good senior, the office environment will never be as crazy and as fun without you all.
Thanks to Kak Realrich Sjarief, for all your knowledge, learning and experiences that you always tell and spread to all the people in the office, including me. It’s been a great experience to work under your command.
And finally, thank you so much RAW Architecture, for letting me to be a part of you for 4 months. This office – indeed — is the best office in the world. Hopefully someday our path can be tangent again, so we can have a next journey together.
See you on top, guys!
Fahry Triza Nugraha.
