We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winners for our "Humble Architecture: Everest Challenge" competition – Shrijan Pradhan, Mitchell Coenraads and Mikhail Singh from Australia!
Honorable mention from Australia
We are three individuals of diverse backgrounds and ideas with a common interest in architecture and design. We went to the University of Technology, Sydney and formed a team to participate in this competition.
What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?
Architecture is not only an art, but also a tool to improve the quality of lived experience now and for the future. Thus, the role of the architect should be to use this tool to its full potential.
Why do you participate in architecture competitions?
Competing in architecture competitions is a way for us to cultivate new ideas and an excellent platform to express ourselves. We also enjoy the design process; it brings us great excitement and is a rewarding experience.
What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?
Don’t overthink. Just do it. If you have a genuine passion for design, you will enjoy it.
