Honorable mention winners from Canada
We are third-year Architectural Science (BArchSc) students currently studying at Ryerson University. As we are based in Toronto, we are exposed to a diverse range of styles and scales, helping develop our architectural vocabulary.
Throughout our academic careers, we have focused on large-scale public projects. Within these larger-scale projects, we apply the knowledge gained through a wide range of courses aimed at providing us with the technical skills required to complete such a project. This competition allowed for the opportunity to shift our focus back to a smaller scale design, carrying the same technical skills we have gained and applying them to a different type of occupant.
Architecture is a constant learning process, where we are continuously evolving to positively impact our communities and cities. As Architectural Science students, we know the importance of responding to the local context and given program. It is the architect's purpose to connect the built form to the scale of its occupant, creating a sense of harmony between the two.
Architectural competitions allow you to expand your exposure to different scales and typologies of use. Competitions provide an opportunity to let your creative side out while working through new and unfamiliar challenges.
Many thanks and looking forward Go for it! Competitions give you the chance to collaborate with peers you may not otherwise work with, opening up opportunities to share your knowledge and develop new ideas through different perspectives of what architecture and design mean.
