Landscape Architecture Club president Alex Mann said the club sponsored the workshop as a service to the university and surrounding communities. Mann added that the workshop was designed for students and practitioners in architecture, landscape architecture and interior design, but that anyone with an interest in presentation graphics and plan drawing was welcome to attend.
