Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter to apply for a 3-month Summer Intern position. I am currently a M.Arch first year student at Columbia GSAPP with a B.S. degree in Architecture from Politecnico di Milano of Italy. I can work in U.S. legally and I can start from June 2018.

After receiving my bachelor degree, I worked at Fernando Menis Arquitectos, Tenerife, RSAA GmbH, Beijing and Atelier Liu Yuyang Architect, Shanghai for a two-year period in total, during which I participated in diversified projects as well as local and international competitions, including villa, hotel, school, and museums. These experiences strengthened my capability in bringing concepts to functional realizations in real-settings. Enriched by my study and working experience in Italy, China and United States, I am able to provide persuasive, reasonable and creative answers regarding context, spatial quality, and humanity based on my sensitivity and in-depth understanding of architecture in these regards. Last but not least, being open to opinions from people of diversified backgrounds, I am a reliable team player with an efficient design habit and proficiency in design software such as Rhino, AutoCAD, Adobe Suites. 

The accompanying resume provides you with more details about my study and working experiences and what I can offer to you and in my portfolio you can see my academic and professional works as well as my research project. I hope you will consider my application in light of my strengths and skills.

Thank you for your time and consideration, 

Guoyu Liu
