Jurying design competitions is a natural extension of lecture practice. It hones one’s sensibilities and affords a view of what future designers are thinking and the parallel technical opportunities. My experience ranges from the annual Yale School of Architecture graduate review to jurying in Moscow, Paris and Munich.
Creating a symposium can result in an extraordinary effect. The Knoll Design Symposium held over eight years consisted of over 100 speakers and total audience of 800 designers and architects. The guideline was to speak not of ones portfolio or predetermined theme but of ones passion.
