Honorable mention winners from Italy
We are a group of four close-knit students studying in the third year at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy. We are used to working together in the university environment, and for the first time we decided to try a new extra-curricular experience.
Since the beginning of our university career, we have been pushed to work on very different fields and scales. We learned to manage different scales simultaneously, dealt with residential projects, museums, social architectures, and urban projects.
For us, creating architecture means knowing ourselves as human beings. For this reason, the architect must build spaces in which man gains awareness of himself in society. The revelation of the human self takes place in beauty, and it is the architect's task to make it possible.
We chose to participate in our first competition to test our skills, but also for fun. For us, studying architecture turned out to be a passion which we are lucky enough to carry out in our everyday life.
After all, what do you have to lose?
