Architecture Competition Monte D'Oiro Wine Hotel Student prize winner – FH MÜNSTER

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the Student prize winner of our "Monte D'Oiro Wine Hotel" competition – Celine Kohlhaas from Germany!

Celine Kohlhaas from Germany

I am a 22-year-old student of architecture based in Germany. I just received my bachelor's degree in architecture one month ago from the MSA – Muenster School of Architecture. After that, I started my master studies right away.
 This competition is the first one I ever took part in, and it was a great experience!

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?

Right now, I can only describe my projects in university. My past projects range from small scales, such as furniture design, to larger scales, such as urban design concepts. I can't tell which project was my favourite because each project brought its own charm. I think that's the beauty of architecture – the diversity in scales.

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

Architecture is my hobby and passion. As an architect, you should always be aware of the people using the buildings. We should intensively consider the subject of the building. Architecture should bring people together and improve people’s life.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

Competitions are great for experiences. You always learn from them.
It's a great way to get exposed to new topics and materials, and thereby expand your horizons.

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

Take part!
 You have nothing to lose. You always gain experience and knowledge. Every competition is different; every project is different; every circumstance is different – just take the opportunity and go for it!
