We recently had Kasey, a year 10 work experience student spend a week in our office. Kasey was given a site, a brief and was asked to design a house for the site, and at the end of the week was invited to present the design to the team. We were blown away with Kasey's professionalism and confidence and also the fact that she travelled an hour and a half each day to come to our office in Surry Hills.
We asked Kasey a few questions at the end of the week
1. What interests you about architecture?: All of the minor details that goes into the designing of a building, and how much those details affect the final design.
2. What was the best part of your work experience?: Being able to experience what it is like to be in a creative environment with friendly, intelligent people. Also chocolate Thursdays are pretty "sweet".
3. What surprised you the most about an architectural office?: I was surprised at how many people can be in an architectural office, as previously i imagined the office to have one or two main designers but it is surprising how many people can successfully work in a large team.
Thanks for joining us Kasey
