Power Point Presentation about Shigeru Ban and environmental design.

For the topic of the Power Point presentation which I had to present in front of my class and two teachers was optional. Obviously the designer or design had to be connected in some way to my own project . From minimalistic interiors, I moved to Japanese design , shoji screens and room partitions.  Some time ago I came across pictures of architectural projects of Japanese architect Shigeru Ban.  ” Curtain Wall House” was one of the first ones and the most interesting house designs of Shigeru Ban which I’ve seen.  After that, I started to read a lot about this architect and his projects . The fact that he uses recycled cardboard tubes as construction materials made my interest to grow.

Underneath I’ve got pictures of the slides of my presentation. 123 4567
After the presentation…    uff finally time to relax ;)) 
Talking in front of the group about my presentation was very good practise.  First of all I gained self confidence and better understanding of how it’s like to be speaker in contrast with listener/observer. I didn’t have any notes with me , but I think that for  future reference I will have cards with written  key quotes and words so that I won’ forget the most important informations. 
Another important thing when it comes to presentation …  bringing prototypes, moodboards, leaflets. All the extras make the presentation more interesting and enjoyable. They can also help to the audience to understand better what we are talking about. Another tip regarding preparation of the Powerpoint presentation, is to focus on the main, the most important and interesting informations. Too many additional facts make the presentation boring. Decent and accurate  research is also something important to remember for the next time.  People from the audience/ clients might have a lot of questions and to make a good impression on them and sound professional ,it’s essential to gain enough of informations.  A few student in my class compared the work of chosen artists/designers with their own work  and I think for future reference it will a good thing to do as well. 
To make my presentation  more entertaining I made moodboard,  the picture we can see underneath:
