Jonas Piet, Yulia Kryazheva - A one-day excursion into your own process

JAN 2012

On 21th of January the Architecture [excursion] Fund is going conceptual, taking you on a trip to explore different areas of the [Architectural] Creation Process.


"As an architect you’re selling your process. Not a building. Not even the plans for the building, because they’re not there yet when a client approaches you. But how often do you take a step back to look at what you’re actually doing?

Join us on this one-day excursion into your own process. This unusual trip has been organised to explore different areas of the Architectural Process. On this journey we’ll map uncharted territories of our own ways of working that we come across. We’ll occasionally pause to reflect, to learn from others, and perhaps to take a picture. We’ll then look at how our maps could also be useful in other worlds, beyond the build environment."


While traveling you will:
– reflect on own practice.
– leam from other ways of working.
– get input for improving the way you work.
– practice communicating the value of what you do.


If you’re an architecture student, architecture teacher architect or designer related to architecture please send a page visualization of your own process.
Selection of 25 travelers. Deadline: 17th of January. Event is not free. Price up to 20 LT (will be defined after selection process).

Designerly Ways of Knowing

Why the book is worth reading:
It has made me think about what it is that I’m doing when I’m designing. And it helps me to explain what design is good for.
