Summary of Internship

Every Thursday, I arrive at Jordan Rosenberg Architects early in the morning and leave with newly acquired information of the intense field of architecture. At first, I felt overwhelmed when realizing all the factors that architects must consider while designing. An architect’s job is not simply designing; it also requires an excessive amount of measuring and planning. However, this internship taught me step by step and allowed me to gradually understand the complexity of designing. My first step was mastering AutoCAD, and then I advanced to electrical plans which I had plenty of practice with. The moments when I finished my assignments were uplifting and getting my work printed on large paper felt extremely rewarding. I have since moved onward to drawing full floor plans. Mr. Rosenberg, my mentor, is supportive of my progress and helps me understand even the smallest details that I do not understand. I look forward to the rest of my internship, furthering my knowledge and exploring this field with a prestigious architect like Mr. Rosenberg.
