Seminar Description:
Architecture is both creative and analytical, combining rigorous thinking with flights of imagination. But too often it’s covered in the media as if its purpose were merely to provide illustrations for stories about real estate deals. Learn how to discuss about the design process as “A Hero’s Journey”. Half the cool characters in movies are architects (or smugglers)–let’s talk to non-designers so they can better understand how cool this profession really is. Attendees of this workshop will learn how branding, community involvement, social media can be utilized for marketing and business development for themselves and their firms.
