During my time at BH Architecture Firm, I had the opportunity to work as part of an architecture and engineering team on a renovation project in the heart of Budapest, Hungary. The firm takes on renovation projects, museum designs, and large-scale public spaces, among other architectural engineering projects. Operating primarily in ArchiCAD (though depending on the task, we also resorted to Rhino or AutoCAD), our intern team transferred measurements and field data to proportional architectural renderings that will be used to recreate the earlier style of the building.
Despite the initial difficulties of cultural differences and occasional miscommunication, I managed to successfully complete the tasks that my employer asked of me. I had never lived in Hungary previously. Although I am fluent in the language, understanding complex architecture terminology and concepts in the first few days was a challenge. However, I persevered, asking questions, watching Youtube tutorials during lunch, and practicing at home. Regardless of the problem, I felt capable of solving it.
