An architectural school jury is a process that exists in architectural schools where the student pins his/her work on the wall or boards to display, and then explain what their project is actually trying to accomplish. The audience is typically composed of other fellow students from the batch and the professors, and to steam it up, sometimes it even comprises of some guests (architecture celebrities). It is really a task to handle upon such an intense scenario. Some secrets to survive this steamy situation like a pro have been compiled below.

TALK THE CONCEPT “THE BIG IDEA”

Architecture offers a solution to a design problem that has been evolved by careful assessment and judgment of the concerned attributes. Every project is based on a concept. The concept is the foundation of a project. Develop a thoughtful concept which helps to evolve a reasonable design. Talk about the concept and let your design revolve freely around it. A strong concept leads to a strong design solution. It projects an individuals innovation capabilities and acts as a boon. Make it mandatory to emphasize the concept in order to impress the jury.

STAND UP FOR THE REASONS, NOT EXCUSES

Generally, students put up so much effort to protect the design that they end up giving excuses instead of stating reasons. Every line marked on the sheet is because of a reason. Know your reasons well and explain the design. Seeking help form unnecessary excuses usually ends up turning off the jury.

STICK TO GRAPHICS

A picture says a thousand words. Keep it simple. Keep it graphical. A well-managed picture explains better than a completely big paragraph of text. Also, the people associated with the field of architecture are more comfortable with graphical representation instead of representing via text. Add graphics, that helps explain better and results in a smooth encounter with the jury.
