My name is Nardi Kurniawan. I am currently studying undergraduate programme in Architecture department in Bung Hatta University, Padang and now entering 8th semester. My journey starts from the day I get accepted to Architecture programme in BungHatta University and from first studied as architect student until now, I get knowledge about how architecture can make better life, how about architecture can make people happy, and many more. Architecture is not just about aesthetic in design but architecture is tell everything, from the smallest thing to the greatest thing. Architecture tells the philosophy how it all happened and why it happened so I always excited to learn something new especially in architecture and sustainable design because all of that make better future and a good architecture very concerned about nature.
And now I tried to learn more about architecture and sustainable design in practical area not just learn from book and theory and get experiences from many source like involve in volunteer actvity, professional experience from big architecture firm, doing real project, and competition to express my idealism.
I think the architect’s profession is my passion because every time I design a project the more interesting the design I make it makes me happier not as a pressure. I am able to work in a team, perfectionist, hard worker and I have easy going nature to makes me work well with other also strong communication skill that required in order to communicate interactively with any people. I am very interested to create a new experiments that have not been done before, it make something new look different.
I have chosen R A W to apply internship program because I really like most of Architecture design from R A W Architecture. All projects that are designed by R A W Architecture have their own characteristics and that make the power of the planned design. School of Alpha Omega is one of the best school design I ever see. Use tropical and sustainable design concept to making cool and comfortable building for student, dominated by material local such as bamboo, nipah for roof, brick for wall and etc, to reduce carbon use and high cost budget and I like when Mr. Realrich designed the school by considering nature that is maximizing natural lighting, the school designed as passive cooling building, which relied heavily on natural cross air ventilation, and especially the design responded site condition. R A W Architecture office that named The Guild with omah library is best project too. Mr. Realrich share her knowledge into omah library and the office design use natural light and connected to nature.
