We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the 3rd prize winners of our “Berlin Techno Booth” competition – Anna Morawek, Jannis Block and Laura Kettler from Germany!
Anna Morawek, Jannis Block and Laura Kettler from Germany
We started studying interior design in Hannover at the same time. Already during our studies, we loved to work on projects together. After our bachelor's degree we moved to different cities to specialize in different fields - interior design, architecture, and spatial strategies. Our close friendship and our passion for design and space still connects us and we are planning to establish an office in the near future.
Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/ individuals have been involved?
Berlin Techno Booth was our first collective project after our studies, and it combines a lot of topics we are interested in. It is about the balance between public and private space, as well as interior design and the city. We love strong concepts. The scale does not matter, for us it is about holistic design, atmosphere, empathy, and the closeness to people - the medium can vary between an installation, an event, an exhibition, or classic interior design - but we always want to create an architecture of inner quality.
What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?
Architecture means to transform places into better places for people. It does not have to be something completely new. It is the role of an (interior) architect to pay attention to the given conditions and already existing structures and to transform it in an artful, smart, and sustainable way.
Why do you participate in architecture competitions?
It was our first collective participation in an architecture competition and, to be honest, we were only looking for a reason to work together on a project.
What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?
Just do it. In the end you have at least another project for your portfolio. Maybe the jury does not honour it but maybe someone else will like it, and who knows what happens next...
