«I come from Montpellier, where I attended the School of Architecture and did my master's degree. After I became aware of IttenBrechbühl and its numerous different and extensive projects, I applied for an internship. Here I had the advantage of being able to do a wide variety of things, whether it was working on a competition, on the execution of a project, or even supervising a construction site. From the very beginning, I was given an insight into the various areas and came into contact with the various players involved in the architecture industry. IttenBrechbühl is the place to be if you want to discover an office where you come into contact with the whole spectrum of architecture, where you are welcomed with open arms, and where you can refine your skills and develop yourself.»

«During my six-month internship, I felt perfectly integrated into the team right from the start. During my time at IttenBrechbühl, I was able to get to know the everyday life of an architect with its diverse tasks and gain a lot of practical experience, which is also very helpful at university. I wouldn’t want to miss the time at IttenBrechbühl and can highly recommend an internship».

«The internship at IttenBrechbühl gave me deep and valuable insight into the profession of an architect. What I really appreciated was the fact that I was actively involved in projects and was thus able to expand and strengthen my knowledge. A further aspect of my internship was the cooperation with various experts, which also provided me with insight into the various other sectors of the construction industry. All in all, the time at IttenBrechbühl was very informative, instructive and an experience for both my studies and my future».
