Since about the year 2000, Bohn&Viljoen Architects have been invited to present their projects and design ideas, especially the CPUL concept, in many countries and to diverse audiences. Most of our presentations were done by Katrin or André or both. For others, we collaborated with colleagues from all over the world.
We are always surprised (and pleased) to hear that a particular project elsewhere was influenced by a lecture we gave, sometimes years earlier. If you happen to know such a project, please do get in touch.
