If a group collaborated on any of the samples included in the portfolio, please clearly indicate what you were instrumental in contributing.

The Architectural Studies selection committee strongly discourages the inclusion of technical/mechanical construction documents in the portfolio. It is very important that the portfolio contains work illustrating your creativity rather than only your technical ability. We are looking for observation skills, criticality, invention and representation.

For any queries concerning this correspondence please contact Mr Samuel Bowen at or Marisha Browne at
