We’ve enjoyed having our Summer Architectural Intern with us from Kennesaw State University.
Rafael is a rising Sophomore from Dalton,GA and he’s learned a lot during his first experience working in an architecture firm! We asked him to share some of the things he’s gleaned from his summer at BPA & share some fun facts about himself as well!
