Max ARnold

Third Year Architecture Student

Graduating 2020 from the University of Kent

Post Part 1 Architectural Assistant

What makes me unique?

I have always been immersed in the building industry. From the age of six, my father, a highly skilled carpenter, took me onto building sites and showed me how he constructed roofs, fitted windows, hung doors and taught me how to use his tools to produce a high quality finished product.

 

At the age of 14, I had experienced working with architects at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Building Control officers, the Planning Application team, Tree Preservation Officers and by the age of 15, I had completed my first successful planning application.

 

Between 16 and 17, I completed an A level in 3D design and was given lots of freedom with a woodworking workshop and CAM lasercutter and became very confident in making models to a professional level. For that course, my coursework and exam project achieved 100% of the available marks.

Other interests

Music

I love to listen to and play music on the piano and drums. I was trained classically on the piano and worked my way up to grade 5 by the age of 15. I still play in my free time.

Keeping Active

Here is a picture of me just before running a half marathon in 2017. I also enjoy kickboxing and karate and earned my black belt after 10 years at the age of 16.

Art

I also love to create art. Here is an oil painting I completed in 2018, and the image to the right shows when I won the prize for best sketchbook in first year of university.
