Since joining in August 2018 for my Part 1 ‘Year-Out’, I have learnt a great deal, including meeting with clients, being taught about the planning process, working on drawings, and creating 3D models from scratch. Working in Esmond Murray Architects is very different from my university experience in University of Lincoln, with a difference to the projects I am working on as well as the design and building process, allowing me to grow as a student and a professional, even within this short period of time.
With my university experience including representing my fellow students on the course, working with prospective students, and running as Vice- President and Media Secretary for the Architecture Society, as well as completing the imaginary projects and competitions for studio, I still have a lot to learn and feel I am gaining a huge amount of knowledge from my colleagues at EMA. I can’t wait to continue to learn even more within this practice.
I have really enjoyed working within this environment, meeting with different people from the industry, watching each project progress, and having an impact on each project I’ve worked on. Another aspect of the job I have greatly enjoyed is spending time with Paddy and Bob, the dogs, and the amount of coffee and cake consumed in the office.
