Architecture Competition The Last Genocide Memorial Honorable mention - Marco Ugolini

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winners for our "The Last Genocide Memorial" competition – Marco Ugolini from Italy!

Marco Ugolini from Italy

I got my three-year degree in architecture in 2019 in Rome. I studied at “La Sapienza” University of Rome and now I’m finishing my master’s degree at the University of Roma Tre. I’m particularly interested in design, and during the last two years I took part in a lot of architecture competitions.

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?

I like to work in different scales, from master-planning to technological details. In 2019 I won an honourable mention thanks to the project of a small library in Mali. During my last design studio course, I designed a proposal for the new Tuscolana Station in Rome, including a new plan for a big piece of the city.

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

Studying architecture helped me to mature as a person and understand my role in the world.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

I think architecture competitions are the best and fastest way to challenge yourself with people from other countries.

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

You have nothing to lose by participating; instead, you can learn more than you think.
