To whom it may concerned,

I will finish my Master degree of Architecture and Master degree of Science in Built Environment at Arizona State University this summer 2018 and I am strongly interested in looking for an Entry- level architect position.

With solid fine art background and knowledge of building energy analyst, I am adept at carrying out a wide variety of design and development project, and can readily conceptualize new ideas as needed. I believe I am a good qualified to the architect position with skills such as Revit(4 years), Rhino(6 years), Auto CAD (6 years), Adobe CC(7 years).

I interne at Optima. Inc in Scottsdale, Arizona, which focused on developing Optima Kierland high-end apartment currently. This project helps me learn Revit skills in coordination with job-site construction and communication skills with sub-contractors.

Besides, I love making models, which can not only express the abstract thoughts, but also find the structure problems in practice applications. The future success of the architectural world is through the understanding and implementation of sustainable practices and design performance. Integrating newly established and proven technologies into the built environment are strong parts of my architectural interests and has fueled my passion for deriving environmental design solutions. Throughout my studies in Built environment I strived to learn and research about the importance of buildings efficiency and performance.

It is our responsibility as designers to know how to integrate and properly apply these important features into an attractive and aesthetically significant design resolution. The technology and building methods of the future must be formulated to be able to be flexible enough to be incorporated into all building typologies so that true sustainability between the environment, economics and social welfare can be met. I am particularly interested in working alongside experts in my field of study as well as branching out to other specialists within industry that deal with parallel issues because each discipline has its own agenda and insight to take into consideration.

It is really exciting to integrate left-brain rational mind with right-brain creative mind while executing ideally.

I appreciate you taking your time to review my credentials. I would love to join your team with my excellent passion and teamwork spirit.

Yours sincerely,

Ruonan Liu
