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?

A friend in need is a friend indeed.
