Marshall Blecher is Co-founder of MAST, a maritime architecture studio based in Copenhagen. His portfolio includes Copenhagen Islands, a cluster of roaming artificial islands designed in collaboration with Studio Fokstrot, set to be built in Copenhagen's harbour as a public park.

Borghildur Indriðadóttir is an artist that lives and works in Reykjavík, Iceland. She has previously worked at Studio Olafur Eliasson, and has collaborated to produce installations such as MEAT shown in Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz, and as an actress and designer for Club Inferno staged by Volksbühne Berlin.

Marta Frazão, Filipe Rodrigues, and Inês Vicente are Partners at Atelier Data, a Lisbon-based office. Its team believes that each project is the “engine” of its own investigation, allowing a critical, creative and innovative approach. Diagrammatic and elementary representations are both the outcome of a process and a means of diagnosis, research and communication of new solutions.

 

Sigrún Sumarliðadóttir is Co Founder and Principal of Studio Bua, an architectural practice with offices in London and Oslo. The studio has to date realised a number of ambitious and concept-driven projects, including the renovation of an Icelandic farmhouse and cultural centre. Sigrún is an Icelandic architect with a background in visual arts. She is especially practiced in the design, procurement and construction of public buildings in Norway, and has–in her role as project architect at Oslo studio LMR Arkitekter–overseen a number of public projects such as schools in Kautokeino and Bærum. In recent years, Sigrún has also led a number of residential refurbishments and urban design projects. Our resident polyglot, she speaks fluent English, Icelandic, Norwegian, Danish, Dutch and Italian.

Yu-Ying Tsai is a lead architect at Shanghai-based ZJJZ Atelier. ZJJZ’s projects have garnered numerous recognition, such as its Woodhouse Hotel being listed as one of the top 10 Chinese architecture projects by Dezeen in 2019.

Kenrick Wong runs OOA - Orient Occident Atelier, a Cambodian architectural studio which focuses on discovering, researching and utilizing the interdependence of “objects” and connections with surrounding space as design inspirations. 

For the Iceland Volcano Coffee Shop competition, Buildner architecture competition organisers have partnered with Icelandic landowners Landeigendur Voga ehf, as part of a competition series. Designers are asked to submit designs for a coffee shop that would be located at the base of the Hverfjall volcano. The new coffee shop would need to include facilities for a new visitor centre and a small exhibition room that would give visitors information about the volcano’s history.
