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

We understand architecture as the stage for human life, it enhances human emotions and provides a base for our daily activities. The role of architect in the current society must be the coherent and responsible coordination of needs, transformed into shape in order to solve problems or an opportunity. Moral, Passion and method are key elements in our understanding of the role of the architect.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

We participate in architecture competitions because they provide a democratic instance for projects development. At the same time they give us the opportunity to learn, experiment and apply innovative solutions.

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

Architecture competitions can provide an excellent opportunity to grow and experiment. It’s also a process of self-discovery, in which a personal’s method of work can be polished for future experiences.
