Studio Progetto Ltd, Architectural Assistant

I was involved in the design stage of projects which the office were undertaking; such as the public park ‘S. Atzeni’, which includes a cultural complex, museum and library (Quartucciu, Sardegna). I put into practise my computer skills such as AutoCad and Photoshop, aiding in design drawings and promotional poster designs for the ‘5th Convegno internazionale’ (international conference) event. I found the placement very interesting and beneficial, experiencing the atmosphere and rhythm of a real-time architectural environment, working in a team to meet various design deadlines
