JC ROBBINS ARCHITECTURE provides workshops for teachers, school groups or others interested in understanding the process of architecutre.

Architecture is a fairly esoteric profession. It takes a significant amount of training and time to become a licensed architect. We have a duty to protect the public, so it's no wonder we want to protect ourselves as well. Unfortunately, this makes it hard for people to understand the value of architecture and what architects can bring to a process.

By offering these workshops and presentations, the goal is to engage people in the process of design so they see the value. When people understand the design process they become better clients. It's no coincidence that good clients have the best architecture.
