Work experience with JTA

It’s been an informative and eventful week with the JTA team. An eye opening experience at what could potentially be my future. I feel as though I have gained a great amount of knowledge about architecture, but I still have a long way to go. I have learnt many useful things this week like, what plans and sections are and how to draw them, how to use CAD programs like ‘SketchUp’ to make a 3D model of your drawings and ideas and I’ve even discovered this new thing called Pintrest.

 I must admit there have been one or two experiences that made me think of reconsidering a career in architecture like lengthy meetings and spending long amounts of time on your feet. But work can’t always be fun, sometimes it’s about getting things done to the best of your ability, and the JTA Team have helped me learn that this week.

Anyway, I just want to say thank you and show my gratitude to the group of people who, over the past 5 days, have given me the knowledge I need to make important decisions in the future. Thank you to Jo, Joe, George, Max, Louise and Frankie, It’s been a pleasure working with you all. Unfortunately you have all failed in your mission to deter me from becoming an architect, sorry.
