Architecture Competition Omuli Museum Of The Horse 1st prize winners – Dian Luo, Xiang Liu and Guisong Zhang

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the 1st prize winners of our “Omuli Museum Of The Horse” competition – Dian Luo, Xiang Liu and Guisong Zhang from China!

Dian Luo, Xiang Liu and Guisong Zhang from China

We – three young architects – met in Germany. Coming from the same university, we built a team out of shared passion for creation and innovation. Dian and Xiang obtained master’s degrees from TU Braunschweig, and after graduation went to work in gmp in Hamburg together, while Guisong is working on his graduation project now.

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?

Our team members have different working experiences in plenty of firms, such as gmp, ksp, wulf architekten and grüntuch-ernst architekten. Projects we have participated in include the designing of Campus BFH Bern, Deutz Campus Cologne, School Campus on the Insel Areal Pforzheim, Shenzhen Art Museum & Second Library, and Yangzhou Theater. We believe that cultural and educational projects have a dramatic social significance, which intangibly affects the economic, historical, and cultural development of a city.

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

Each architectural practice is a reflection on the present: site, architecture, and people are inseparable. The understanding of a site gives the building a consistent spirit, and will also evoke deep memories, which in turn evoke resonance between people and architecture.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

The reason why we join competitions is that they provide us with a platform to spark our passion and create works freely. Due to various reasons, architects are often facing multiple restrictions in routine work. However, in this competition we can think more about current social issues and problems and pay more attention to the context of our designs. Through improving the design philosophy and updating the traditional design style, we strive to pursue optimum solutions.

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

It is a wonderful opportunity for us to join the competition because not only can we improve our capacity of creating and thinking, but also enhance our expression skills and teamwork, all of which helps us make our dreams and ideas come true.
