portfolio reviews

Over the past 10 years, Buildner has been proud to view the work of an incredible list of architects and designers. Our team has analyzed and rated thousands of architecture competition project submissions. So trust us when we say we know what makes a good visual presentation, and how important they are in communicating not just your ideas but your skills, creativity, and experience.

Both new and established architects rely heavily on the power of their portfolios. While resumes and qualifications are undoubtedly important, a job can be won or lost based on the quality of your portfolio.

The saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, so make sure your portfolio tells the right story about your work, your experience, and your creative vision. Buildner now offers online portfolio reviews, ideally suited to young designers and those fresh out of university, as a chance to see what strengths your current portfolio has and what key improvements and additions you could make to improve your career prospects.

Run separately from our architecture competitions, this is an opportunity to get feedback and insight from experts in the fields of architecture and design and find out what you can do to have the best portfolio possible.
