How to Set and Exceed Client Expectations, MoA, London, UK
19 + 21 Sep
Session one: 19 September 2017
Session two: 21 September 2017
Time: 6.30 – 8.30pm
Venue: Build Studios, Waterloo
Price: £125 + VAT, concessions £100 + VAT
Lecturer: Rowley Mossop, Innovia Partners
Successful architectural practices develop and manage client relationships proactively. Failure to properly set and deliver on client expectations can result in unhappy clients, a damaged reputation to the individual and practice, and lower project profitability. Exceeding expectations can set your practice apart from others and increase the likelihood clients will choose you for their next project or refer your practice to their colleagues. Delivering consistency requires planning, processes, and great talent with strong project management and people skills.

Come and Make a Dolls’ House in a Shoebox, London, UK
Big Draw Workshop in the Doodle Bar
60 Druid Street London SE1 2EZ
Saturday 30 September 12-5 pm
Part of the BIG DRAW Festival
related architecture event – see also Architecture, Dreams, Miniature and Making
The Giant Dolls’ House project is an ongoing collaborative arts project that engages local communities. The project encourages people to think about the importance of home and community through making dolls’ houses. The dolls’ houses are collated onto a black canvas and linked with ropes and ramps and ladders to form a miniature community.
We are taking part in The Big Draw, the world’s largest drawing festival. This year’s theme is ‘Living Lines’. Drawing can be used to develop the design of the dolls’ house, to decorate the dolls’ house and to document the dolls’ house installation. The workshop will be led by Eilidh Watson and some Dolls’ Houses for this exhibition have been made by first Year Students from UAL, Chelsea College of Arts.
The preview will start with a lecture evening with Will Alsop OBE RA, well known British architect and former Stirling price Winner, Angela Ford, model maker and educator, and Catja de Haas, founder of the Giant Dolls’ House Project.
The events are free, but we ask participants for a contribution for the Housing and Homelessness Charity Shelter.
The Giant Dolls’ House is the result of ongoing research by Catja de Haas into the use of dolls’ houses and imagination to address real issues and bring about change. The project has had several installations since its beginning in October 2014 in TESTBED1. It exhibited at Shelter headquarters as part of LFA2015; the Wimbledon Windmill; 80 The Gallery in Richmond; AUB, Bournemouth department of architecture; UAL Chelsea College of Arts; Raynes Park School (Part of a Fun Palace Event); Maestro Arts gallery, LFA2016 ; Critical Practice; JW3, LFA2017; AUD, Dubai; thejamjar in Dubai (part of al Quoz arts festival). At the end of October 20-28, the project will head to Edenton, North Carolina, to create a dolls’ house installation in the ‘Peanut Factory’, an artist retreat and community centre with local schools and community groups.
Please contact Catja de Haas for more information on the project: +447803627426. For more information on the venue email Jasmin Ford: email@example.com
