ABI Profile: Parya
is an Architecture student at Queensland University of Technology. Parya did an internship at Dieppe Design in Sydney in the Summer of 2020.
"My very first experience as an intern started in Dieppe Design, a very young and dynamic architectural firm, located in Sydney. Dieppe Design as a growing firm specializes in new builds, alternations & additions and interior renovations. They are an A+ member of the Australian Institute of Architects practice and certified in Passivehaus design."
A couple of Dieppe Design completed projects in Australia
"My tasks were mostly revolved around using software including, Revit, AutoCAD, and Adobe creative cloud. For example, assisting in updating Revit drawings based on the changes required by the PCA or council, creating new templates for the clients and contractors were my main responsibilities. In general, I was involved in the process of a project from the early phases to the construction phase."
One of Parya's Physical Model Making Work
"This internship has definitely helped to gain a clearer perspective on what does the architectural industry looks like outside of university and it provided me with an opportunity to understand my weaknesses and strengths so I can grow more as a future architect and find my own path"

"Creative industry is one of the most competitive industries, so finding the right network and connecting with like-minded people who has went through the same process is imperative. ArtBound Initiative not only made this possible for me, but also it gave me a starting point. Without ABI, I wouldn’t have a more refined and practical goal, vision, and portfolio to succeed in this industry."
