Panelists: John King, Lydia Lee, Jonathan Stern, Frank Doyle, Phil Woods April 25, 2012, 11:30 Registration and Light Lunch, 12pm – 1pm Discussion AIA SF, 130 Sutter Street, Suite 600 San Francisco
Accurately communicating design ideas is crucial for architects. How you present your design informs an impression that is often impossible to reverse. Whether built or unbuilt, your design story can be told in many ways and through many vehicles. Join us on April 25th when we turn the tables. A panel of clients, the press, bloggers and public stakeholders present their feedback about what has worked, hasn’t worked, what they’d really like to see. This interactive lunch-time event is your chance to learn new ways of getting your ideas understood – the first time.
