Link to Full Portfolio: cargocollective.com/oscar_ramirez

I am a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design with a Bachelor of Architecture degree as well as a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

I recently worked at D’Apostrophe Architecture Studio as a junior architect where I consistently met the challenging demands of providing excellent work while also striving to provide outstanding service to clients. Throughout that time I gained experience in creating full construction document sets, familiar with the DOB standards, surveying interiors, producing floor plans, architectural plan sets, and furniture design with build detailed drawing sets. During that time at D’Apostrophe I demonstrated an ability to follow direction and as well as lead and work in a team environment. From my resume you will notice I am proficient in a variety of rendering and CAD software such as AutoCAD, Rhino, Sketch-Up Revit, etc, as well as the entire Adobe Suite software. I have excellent  3D rendering and design skills and an eye for detail with an exceptional ability to thoroughly research, analyze, organize and manage a project from concept to production. I also have experience with Design Build from Skin Deep/Urban Farming studio where my team and I designed and constructed an Urban Greenhouse as well being an active volunteer for Habitat for Humanity.

Although trained as an architect, while at RISD I was able to expose myself to a variety of disciplines such as interior design, graphic design, industrial design, film, and some digital media. This allowed me to broaden my comprehension of what it is to be a designer and compliment my architectural studies.  Acquiring these different design skills has allowed me to apply the different mediums into my work as an architect. For a semester at RISD I traveled to Germany and where I collaborated with the students at the School of Applied Sciences implementing passive house design standards into my architectural studies.

 

Computer: Proficiency in AutoCAD, Rhino, SketchUp, Revit, VRay, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Adobe Acrobat, & all Microsoft Office Programs. Working Knowledge of 3D Max and Dreamweaver. Ability to learn programs quickly and adapt them to studio needs.

Architectural Design: Experienced in Developing construction documents and proposals for clients. Refined skills at manual & computer drafting and model making for the purpose of creating and developing architectural concepts. Excellent design skills and an eye for detail. Exceptional ability to thoroughly research, analyze, organize and manage a project from concept to production.
