About 

I am Jay Patel, currently enrolled in 2-year track Master in Architecture program at NYIT, Manhattan. I hold the Bachelor in architecture degree from Institute of Architecture and Planning, Nirma university, Ahmadabad. As part of my academic exploration and practical learning, I wish to do an internship with an architectural firm in New York. The expected joining date for me would be May, 2020.


In my recent semester at NYIT, I successfully completed my studio project of designing a school of architecture in Red hook, Brooklyn. Along with this, I had an opportunity of study different subjects like material tectonics, Site and environmental planning and Visual communication. This subjects gave me an introduction to architecture and its practice in the united states. I am an inquisitive person. I am keenly interested in art and Design. I am a persistent person with zeal to carry to completion any task that I have taken up. I believe that basic support for any human being is the presence of other human beings. Due to this belief, I pursued a live project in association with EDC - environmental development cell, Ahmadabad which was an "Integrated community living". The project was a venture to merge three different age groups- namely, orphans, young adults and old aged people into a unified living environment which provides required privacy yet the sense of togetherness. It was a project that literally was meant to be a home for the loner in the Urban context with fast and filled life. Urban fabrics are the intriguing elements to me. I admire the theories of Kevin Lynch and always wondered about the applicability of his Western concepts on the Eastern context. When I had the opportunity, I explored the framework of the image of the city by Kevin Lynch and analyzed the applicability of the same on the Pink city of India - Jaipur. I carried out my research thesis by understanding the framework and surveying 50 people of different strata including - residents, tourists, vendors and shopkeepers to form the database for perception analysis. My thesis was a successful completion that was appreciated for its rigorous process and clear conclusion.


Along with this, I have had an experience in the field of Architecture via internship with Aangan architects in Surat, India. It was a 24 week internship that provided me with the experience of the practical field. I was involved in various projects including architectural building as well as Urban design projects. I was an active member of Students council and held the post of Academic head for the year 2017-18. I delivered my best to work for the students as well as the administration in every way to overcome the academic challenges together as a unified community.
I am a responsible person and a dependable team-worker. I have sincere interest in pursuing my internship at your reputed firm as it will be a major anchor point in my professional career and will guide me further towards accomplishing my goals as an architect. If given an opportunity, I assure you to work at the best of my capabilities towards the interest of the firm as well as the growth of my own.
