Christian Dummermuth from Germany

I am in my sixth semester of the interior design bachelor’s degree at the University of Applied Sciences in Mainz, Germany.

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

Architecture plays a central role in facilitation or obstructing our evolvement. Therefore, architects should consider themselves as servants to society rather than as self-expressing individuals. The space created by architects should not only consider the needs of inhabitants but also the impact on its surrounding environment.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

The participation in this architecture competition was a part of a university project.

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

Participating will always be a rewarding experience regardless of whether your projects get awarded.
