Architecture Competition Romantic Cabin For Two Student prize winner – ARCHITECTURAL ASSOCIATION

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the Student prize winners of our "Romantic Cabin For Two" competition – Yolande Wang and Zekun Qin from United Kingdom!

Student prize winners from United Kingdom

We met at the University of Sydney and are both currently studying for our diplomas (M.Arch) at the Architectural Association in London.

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?

Yolande’s work demonstrates a keen interest in domesticity and the human scale, while Qin is attracted to all scales and typologies that call for the creative agencies of architecture. We have collaborated on several built/unbuilt projects including a recently completed interior fit-out for an apartment.

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

To us, architecture means a powerful agency to leave a dent in the contemporary world, embodying the ideas we believe in with solidity and concreteness. Therefore, the role of the architect is not only to work in the present but to contribute to a collective foresight which determines the forms of being of our societies in the decades to come.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

Competitions are great platforms to test out our skills and ideas as young architects. They provide a “middle space” between academia and practice, where the unavoidably competitive nature of the profession is channelled positively into a collective intellectual output.

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 worth a try.
