Half a year ago when I was in my studio in Hong Kong, I had no idea that I would spend my summer in Spain and have one of the best memories of my life. At the time I was in the penultimate year of my undergraduate study. I wanted to have an internship that would provide a brand new vision, expose me to different opportunities and hopefully guide me on future career paths after graduation.… Read the rest
When the Croatian Chamber of Architects published an offerfor professional training placement in a foreign architectural office, as part of the ‘Leonardo da Vinci’ mobility program, in June, 2013, I had no second thoughts about whether or not I should apply. I knew that internship in a office outside Croatia was an excellent opportunity to maintain continuity in my field of work by participating in innovative projects, exchanging experience and approaches to architecture, networking in international professional circles, learning about new computer programs and tools, improving my foreign language skills, and maybe even learning a new one.… Read the rest

Always was fascinated by the Holy Redeemer Church but never did I expect that I would work for MENIS ARQUITECTOS. I met Fernando in Mumbai at the 361 degree conference where I discussed my areas of interests, got an immediate response from him and I joined in, a month later. The studio works around the eccentric Fernando Menis and his enthusiasm and a treasure of ideas.… Read the rest

Working with people from all over the world, who speak different languages and belong to different cultures was incredibly interesting.
