Traineeship in OOD-A Arquitectura Lda in Porto
As a young professional, who graduated from architecture last year, I was looking for an opportunity to have an internship/traineeship abroad in architectural office. I was looking for the opportunity to deepen my knowledge in architectural design process and constructions.
I was accepted to complete my Erasmus + traineeship in OOD-A Arquitectura Lda in Porto, Portugal. During my internship I have worked in the office together with OODA design team that guided me through the design projects. I have worked together with a design team developing several phases of a professional architectural design process from the concept idea until the construction documents. At the same time I have been involved in different design processes and tested my own ideas (through virtual and physical models and drawings) interacting them with other ideas. In this involvement I developed new knowledge on different softwares and I also got better understanding in precision building architectural models.
Despite working in the office I had time to explore amazing Porto city. It is just so easy to get used to Portuguese lifestyle and just enjoy life here. Porto as a city with a huge perspective has a lot things to offer especially in architectural field. All in all I can truly say that after these couple months my technical, theoretical knowledge has improved, as well as creativity and self-confident.
