About the Event

Brief

(1.0 hour Structured ConEd)

With the help and encouragement of the OAA and the RAIC, The Right Angle Journal has designed a 45-minute seminar on the subject of architectural writing. Writing Architecture, is based on the presentation delivered at the RAIC Conference in May 2022, but is much expanded, more collaborative, and more instructive.

Writing Architecture covers most forms of writing that architects may have occasion to create, from job applications, to professional correspondence, to thought leadership pieces. The main focus of the seminar is encouraging architects to write – better, more often, more effectively, and with more confidence – turning architectural skills into writing skills.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this course, participants will be able to understand:

  • Why write?
  • The link between architecture and writing.
  • The Architecture of Writing.
