Wish to apply for a master degree in architecture, but portfolio material is lost


I've lost my portfolio material in an accident since most of the original materials were hand renders I am only last with some pictures wich most of them are really hard to use any advice? And since most of the material was hand renders will be acceptable if I represented them digital?

I lost my application to grad school in 1988. I didn't bother to look for it.

Lets see how much you can put in your portfolio. 

Developing drawings are more important than rendering. I would suggest represented the render, only necessary, in the way that can best describe your work, concept, etc.

sorry to hear that. I can't image what I would do but I can suggest this:

besides drawing skills, schools are also looking for new means of communication to transmit architecture work. for example you can eloquently write about your projects and use a typographic language to enhance that experience but also show your architecture skills within the text or additional drawings. 

here is an example of typographic design just as a reference.

That sucks big time. My school burnt down in 2008 and some students and staff lost their entire thesis/models/research.

No clear advice as of what to do, just use as much as you can of the materials you still have and is worthy of being in your portfolio. Redoing some of it might also be an idea, it usually goes faster the second time, just like with software crashes. Or see it as a second chance to improve some of your projects :-(

agree, it sucks.  My car was stolen shortly before applications were due, lost everything.
