Architecture Competition Hospice - Home For Terminally Ill Honorable mention – Cherry Yang, Yunchao Le, Benjamin Han and Reishan Mcintosh

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winners for our "Hospice - Home For Terminally Ill" competition – Cherry Yang, Yunchao Le, Benjamin Han and Reishan Mcintosh from United States!

Honorable mention from United States

We are four architectural designers that recently graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design. Our friendship coalesced during a semester abroad at ETH Zurich. Since then, we have collaborated in a variety of projects, from exhibitions and publications to competitions. We are currently working in different firms across the US and Canada.

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?

We currently focus on residential projects across a range of scales in our respective firms. Our professional practice experience gives us the opportunity to think about how people live in spaces and find belonging in a home. This is the first time the four of us have worked directly with each other, bringing our individual work experiences together into one project.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

We believe architecture serves to care for people’s livelihood. To us, architecture is a dynamic service, and the architect carries the agency to manifest progressive agendas and improve how we live together in the world.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

Participating in the competition allowed us to stay connected after moving to different cities. The competition also allowed us to direct an architecture project on our own, which benefited us greatly as recent graduates.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?

Working in our respective architecture firms, we find it hard to come across creative outlets outside the workplace. Competitions are great opportunities to challenge yourself creatively and collaboratively. If you are considering a competition, go for it.
