Summer ’17 Internships at CUBE 3 Studio – Part I

Summer ’17 Internships at CUBE 3 Studio – Part I

Each year we seek out talented students from the local universities such as Wentworth Institute of Technology (WIT), University of Massachusetts (UMASS), Roger Williams University (RW) and this year we even had internships from as far as Norwich University (NU) and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). This summer we have been blessed with another great group of individuals who have become an integral part of our team. We are thankful for all of their hard work this summer and are sad to see them go back to school! However, we wish them the best of luck as they continue their careers and hope to see them back soon. Before they head back to school, we did a short interview together and wanted to share some of their experiences with you:

 

Freddy Pendleton (WIT – Undergraduate Class of 2018)

C3: What did you hope to learn/gain from your experience at CUBE 3 Studio?

I came to CUBE3 hoping to learn how to work well with a design team, how to learn from others’ experiences and to make my own thoughts heard.

C3: What do you feel has been your biggest takeaway so far from working at CUBE 3 Studio?

Working at CUBE3 has shown me that professional design practice can be just as creatively based as college studio projects. I never expected to experience design reviews and pin-ups outside of school.

 

Allison Turner (RPI – Undergraduate Class of 2018)

I’ve learned a lot from contributing to projects and
working with team members here at Cube 3. I’ve had the opportunity to sit in on
meetings with clients and consultants which has provided me with insight
into the aspects of coordination and management of architectural
projects. The team at Cube 3 has been very welcoming and supportive,
it’s a great environment to work in!

 

Lindsay Todaro (UMASS – Undergraduate Class of 2016)

C3: What do you feel has been your biggest takeaway so far from working at CUBE 3 Studio?

I’ve definitely gained what I was searching for at Cube 3. When you’re in school, you get caught up in the fantasy and forget practical  applications, which can be disappointing upon entering the “real world”. I haven’t found it that way, simply because being in the real world offers a whole new set of challenges and opportunities that academia can’t provide. And this is the world where you get to see projects realized. Not only that, but working under principals and CEOs who genuinely care about the well-being of their employees has been an honor.

 

Brittany Hall (WIT  – Undergraduate Class of 2018)

C3: What inspired you to want to pursue architecture?

I have always admired big cities and design is something that I love and comes natural to me, so I decided to merge the two. I get excited about design and people ask me to draw/design things for them all of the time ranging from posters to wall murals to even room layouts. Architecture just brings my design skills to a larger scale!

C3: What did you hope to learn/gain from your experience at CUBE3 Studio?

I joined CUBE3 team to get as much experience on a project from start to finish as possible. I hadn’t gotten the chance in my career to see how architecture is developed in a firm and I was excited to see how the development of a project works outside of studio class. I was hoping to be able to be able to actually have a part in my project and see it become real, which I have been fortunate to be able to do as an intern.
