My name is Anthony Rash, a recent graduate of Northeastern University’s Bachelor of Science architecture program (located in Boston), currently seeking job opportunities in the United States and abroad. Most recently I had worked under Rodolfo Machado for this past month of August; he had asked that I aid his team in a competition for a mixed-use cultural center in Buenos Aires. Until this time, it had been difficult to secure a part time or internship position, but with great luck I was able to work for another month at the office of Machado and Silvetti.
Due to Northeastern’s integrated Co-op (internship) program, I have had the opportunity to work professionally within office settings (for a period of greater than six months). The first of two experiences was at a small interior design firm located outside of Boston proper; the second internship was spent at the office of Machado and Silvetti Associates (located in Boston’s South End), where I had worked directly under Rodolfo on design development for a fifty-room hotel. During the eight month period (Jan. 2010 - Aug. 2010) I was responsible for not only hotel development but also for space planning in multi-level residential buildings, facade/ elevation development, schematic barrier design, as well as involvement in consultant and client communications.
In May of this past year, I had completed my senior design studio taught by professor Kiel Moe, whose interests are rooted in Next-use design as well as integrated building systems. We were taught that architects in the twenty-first century must be responsible designers who consider all aspects of the design process as well as the consequences of such decisions. It is my belief that when architecture is considered in this manner that the structures themselves become “...a grace to the landscape, rather than a disgrace (FLW).”
My interest in serving your design collaborative steams beyond the recommendation of Rodolfo to explore the city of Chicago but into the actualities of architecture itself; the amount of knowledge and wisdom gained from such an experience (and in a city with such a rich architectural history!) would be invaluable to my future career as a ‘master builder.’
