I’m Sebastian

Over the last years, I have also worked as a teacher, visualizer, and illustrator, and now I am glad to be a teacher here in the Show it Better team.

My specialty is architectural representation, from drawing 2d plans to 3d visualizations, exploring different styles based on digital tools or hand drawing expression. I have always felt a huge affinity for all related to architectural representation. I enjoy working and looking for new ways to show an idea, and I want to transmit to every new architect around the world and to everyone who loves architecture all I can teach about this amazing passion.
