Most Architects just open their mouths, and nobody understands what they are talking about. Do you know that kind of experience? This seminar and workshop will help you to learn how to express yourself in different situations talking to different target groups such as architects, clients, investors, tenants, children or local citizens. You will have the opportunity to practice building up a structure for short and long presentation runs. And you will be given some helpful tools how to put your message into a nutshell and how to catch your listeners's attention. Did I catch yours? If so, I am looking forward to working with you! ;-))

Examination Modalities

During the blocked seminar you will practice and observe different oral presentation situations. We will also work a bit on a written level. The final exam will, thus, also include a written paper where you will be asked to write a short report on an architectural project from a very specific point of view to a very specific kind of audience.  


There will be no standardized hand-outs. I will work with you in a spontaneous way and react to your personal, specific needs. You may consider this workshop as a kind of confidential dress rehearsal for your mid-term and end-term reviews in your studios. Whatever you want to know, to learn, or to try out, just let me know!
