Den Gedanken von Marketing orientierter Architektur in Verbindung mit Kommunikation trägt sie in vielschichtiger Weise nach außen. In zahlreichen Vorträgen begeistert sie ihre Zuhörer, in umfangreicher Jurytätigkeit ist sie eine geschätzte Stimme, in der Projektarbeit sind ihre Kreativität und Erfahrung eine wichtige Konstante.

CV Martina Metzner
