Under this article as one of the industry leaders and catering to more than 500 global clients since 2005 we would like to share some key inputs to aspiring architects for making your architecture portfolio professional and presentable while crafting the same. With more than a decade of experience of catering to the architectural design needs of our leading esteemed clients, we at outsource architectural services under our banner of outsource creative services have dealt with number of architectural portfolio both while recruiting a new team member or while pitching for a new prospecting project.
As per our experience of working with most of our esteemed global clients under our outsource architectural services we could state that an architectural portfolio is all about presentation of quality over quantity and should be consisting of around 5 to 6 pages of either A3 or A4 size and should include the best and most recent & relevant work. The main architecture portfolio should include the details of the work you have done on key recent projects either as an individual or describing your role in detail as a team member.
Specifically for the fresh students aiming to enter a professional architecture field, we at outsource architecture services strongly recommend you try presenting as many construction details of your recent architecture project as possible; recruiters would be more keen on knowing your understanding of all the construction details involved in all of the procurement stages. Whereas for any mid experience professionals, representation of his / her experience of site designing and exposure to the complete project working would add more value to the hiring process. Over and above this in both the cases presentation of the work which is more in line with the requirement would be the best fit.
