About 

Dear Employer,   

It is an honor and delight to write this letter to you.  Starting a business has similarities than that of working, and learning, at an architect’s office, except there are limitations, and reliance on self- care and self-diligence. I have studied architecture  at universities of New Jersey Institute of Technology at New Jersey, Vienna Institute of Technology in Vienna, and Cracow University of Technology; have worked in Architect’s office in New Jersey and New York, USA; and have skills in architectural design; in CAD, and BIM; seeking secure, permanent work in an office with benefits; have experience in offices of any size. The responsibilities of the offices that I undertook include design, CAD design, software applications, attend client and business meetings, discussions, phone service and client assistance,  assistance to architect such as editing designs, checking designs, printing and organizing designs. Visitations to project sites and conducting measurements, sketches, photography, or other forms of recording the site were some of the duties conducted. Learning methods at the universities were traditional or in the classroom or in the studio or in lecture halls. Other forms of education include study trips. We visited architectural sites which include Falling Water in Mill Run, USA, and Bobolice castle in Poland.  The universities offered  the modes, practice  and applications of projects, drawing, sketches, essays, models, CAD, projection presentation, traditional presentation , building estimation and cost, studio culture, the theory and history of architecture and technology, mathematics, and architectural grammar terminology. The access to thousands of information and reading sources were given to me and the student body from the libraries. Athletic and sport fitness were taught  as well. We learned the presence and importance of geometry in architecture; how geometry is integrated in architecture and its assistance to the architect; how the architect uses geometry; taught how to arrange the room program in residential architecture; how offices can be on multiple levels; CAD techniques such as using mirror, symmetry, blocks, attributes,layers; how living room should be in the southern part of the house to receive abundant daylight, if in northern hemisphere; how to orient a building on the site; how to arrange solary on building roof; the lives of architects; to map blocks in a city; to draw alleyways and much more instructions were we given by t he instructors from the universities; how architects emphasized on sketching and how planners emphasized location .  Personal hobbies related to study and discipline include drawing buildings, bridges, alleyways, streetscape, cityscape, landscape, people, roads, concepts; learning new software, discussion, travel, research walks, observing construction, research information,  and reading.  Please contact by various sorts of communication,: phone, mail, and electronic mail.
