“The architecture portfolio is the greatest tool in the hands of a student or a professional architect to present themselves and their work to potential employers, clients or tutors.”
The Portfolio is often the first introduction to who one is as a creative. It is used for various reasons, both academically and professionally, to showcase one’s abilities, talents and interests in design. Having a clear and memorable portfolio is often crucial to opening up opportunities in a career in design.
This two-part Global Studio Portfolio Workshop will bring together professionals, educators, and students worldwide to discuss effective strategies in creating an architectural and creative portfolio.
