The second half of the summer has brought new challenges. Without a partner to rely on, I have had to figure out many new things on my own, which has definitely improved my skillset and design approach. I worked with a variety of programs and have been able to improve my knowledge of programs I have used before, such as AutoCad and SketchUp, and better my confidence in programs I previously had little to no experience with, such as Photoshop and Podium. As well as a variety of programs, I was given the opportunity to be a part of many types of projects. From restaurant design to animal shelter renovation, I got to see a wide range of budgets, locations, needs, and programs. I think this variety of experience at Quorum Architects this summer will benefit me returning to school for my senior year. I am looking forward to applying what I have learned to my projects and conversations with my professors. I feel much more confident in what my presentations will look like and how I will communicate my ideas.
