Architectural representation plays a fundamental role in how a project is perceived by the audience, which is why today ArchDaily is recognizing the most outstanding, original and self explanatory drawings of the year.

Particularly in an educational setting, where every minute leading up to a review tends to be maximized with work on graphic materials, it can’t be stressed enough that a significant amount of time should be dedicated to designing a project’s presentation narrative. A lack of investment in this area risks an unclear or ineffective communication of the project to its audience, nearly invalidating all the graphic work put into it.

Approaches to presentation vary from person to person and are often highly individualized. This allows a great deal of creative control over the way projects are introduced, but for someone who may not have much experience or formal training in storytelling or public speaking, it can be impossible to even begin this task without a road map.
