Tomasz Bekas and Jakub Wichtowski from Poland
We are not a brand. We are a group of friends trying to rethink the surrounding environment. In the deep belief in helping each other, we want to try to give some real sense of that philosophy to others by deﬁning the space.
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?
We are not limited by any criteria. We love to challenge our imagination in solving many diﬀerent issues! Our key point is to learn every time new things about our reality! Each mental structure that turns into a speciﬁc project is a ﬁeld for experimentation on how to transfer the feeling of the design space into the one that is already perceived in reality.
What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?
For us, architecture is a dialogue about people, environment, heritage and culture, and so on. We love to think about architecture as one of the elements that make up space. Our task is to ﬁnd the best consensus between all of these contexts and create complementary spaces.
Why do you participate in architecture competitions?
It’s great ﬁeld for exchange views and thoughts based on the work put into the design processes. It's not about competing, it’s about our self develop.
What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneﬁcial for them to participate in architecture competitions?
