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

Architecture means to us thinking outside the box to create spaces and buildings to make people feel good and interesting using them. It also means the context of the place to fit our projects in existing places and other objects. The role of an architect in our society is a creation of inside and outside space matched to the user. At first it is necessary to get to know the needs of people and the needs of a study area and then design a fitted building or public space.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

We participate in architecture competitions mainly to share our architecture and urban ideas and to check the level of our work against the background of the works of other participants. We like to work on creative topics that competitions give and try to think outside the box to make our projects more and more original.

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

We all think that taking part in architecture competitions is the best way to see if you can work under pressure of time, think in a creative way and check the level of your work. It is also the best way to learn how to work in a team.
