Why do you enter architecture
competitions?

Vision competitions seek out non-traditional solutions. It allows the creative process to thrive and to stimulate the imagination. Besides this freedom, it is a good opportunity to take up new challenges with different people. Learning from their way of thinking allows the sharpening your own vision. And most of all, it’s fun!

Jury commentary

The jury selected this project as the winner because of the versatility of its design. This project included the option to be scaled and adapted for different species of bird without sacrificing design elements. The jury felt that this was an interesting project and could be further adapted to better suit home construction; currently the variety of fine materials make it more suited to factory production as some uniformity would be lost when being built at home.

Why do you enter architecture
competitions?

We believe in the importance of competition in the field of architecture to push beyond boundaries of creativity; and architecture vision competitions provide a platform to achieve these goals.

Jury commentary

This project was chosen for second place as it stood out as a new take on a traditional version of a bird house with an interesting design element. The proportions were well thought out and the forward slant adds a practical as well as aesthetic element to the design since a forward slant makes it easier for birds to get out.

3rd Prize Winner

Project name

The Burrow Project

Authors

Kerry Kyriakou

Cyprus

Why do you enter architecture
competitions?

As a practical architect I often get caught up on the idea/routine that I should only apply my abilities to the built environment and tend to forget that I can offer more. Architecture vision competitions allow architects to keep a bridge between practical architecture and the realm of academia to create unique proposals.

Jury commentary

This project was inspired by the naturally-occuring burrows of birds that make their nests on the ground or in cliff side formations. The jury selected this design as a winner because of its interesting and unique concept. A good option for Asian and American bird species.
