Jakarta, 12 April 2018.
Dear Mr. Sjarief,
It’s been 2 months since I finished my internship programme at RAW Studio. From my sincere heart, I’m very thankful for you and rest of team to give me such opportunity in experiencing direct practice as professional architect.
Many new knowledge and insights I got during the programme period. I learnt that architectural drawings still had to be updated, even the projects were already done, as necessary for further owner’s civil administrations and auditing process on company works. Routine documentation process on site is also important to maintain the projects quality control and provides back-up project data for emergency causes.
I also learnt about one important thing in architectural practice: Trust. The way to maintaining trust with other co-workers in organizing and developing projects through intensive discussions and reviews. The trust which constantly exchanged between design, finance, and builder divisions in order to keep construction process on site properly executed as plans. The same trust that also came from owners toward project development which I believe it couldn’t be well-executed without their feedback. From these things I can conclude if architecture works, no matter how it looks amazing or innovative, won’t be meaningful if we couldn’t keep trust in every aspects of its process.
While I’m working in here, I was very enjoying the workplace ambience and your teamwork were really helpful and supportive to me. Only the studio office hours could be set more early, since I took a long route to go and back from office to my home at Harmoni, Central Jakarta.
Aside from it all, I’m very grateful to experiencing these things with RAW team. This internship programme has giving me more determination to become a capable architect, not only in technical skill or theoretical thoughts but also on keeping up relationship with project partners.
Thank you for your consideration and kindness to let me join your studio. I’m also apologize if I unconsciously made mistakes while working on your projects. I hope we could meet again and working together as one team in the future. Once again, thank you very much.
