Looks nice, the buildings are a little on the bland side. I would look at the work of Richard Meier to see how he adds depth to modern enclosures. This is something that could take quite a while to get the hang of.

Thank you very much for the feedback! what do you mean by the bland side?

lacking in articulation

Non Sequitur

Too much grey wash. Nothing stands out and I don't like the section profile along the gutter.

Yes, I know my graphic design skills are a bit weak and I am working on it. can you tell me something about the content as well?

Others may disagree, but I say get rid of the skyline on the side of each layout.  At first, I thought you had scanned a page that was ripped out of a printed portfolio.  Also the cheesy quotes from other architects is not ok.  If you used a precedent study from a specific architect, show that as an example.  Ditch the quote.

Fair enough, thank you!

I second the skyline/torn pages comment, doesn’t add to the layout. Also, things are cramped onto the pages. Try to find a way to make the negative space of the page work with your images. And you need to explain your thought process through images. The big decisions made will be graphically represented. For example, you have text, a sketch, site plan, plan and rendering all on one page for your sports center. It’s the first page, just start off with the grand idea of the project in the simplest form. You don’t need to show the entire conception of the project on the first page. Also, put your portfolio together like you’re showing it to a client. This way, you can explain your project through images.
