Sofia Colabella & Alberto Pugnale: A blueprint for working with portfolios with architecture students
Dr Sofia Colabella and Dr Alberto Pugnale work at the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning (ABP) of The University of Melbourne in Australia. They have been working with design portfolios for many years, and recently introduced an ePortfolio into their classes. This helped them discover how powerful the medium and practice can be, in particular in getting to know their students as persons.
Their findings can be applied to other study programmes and are a wonderful way to engage with students through scaffolding the portfolio practice yet leave enough space for them to bring in their own personalities.
