We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winners for our “SKYHIVE 2021 Skyscraper Challenge” competition – Wang Rujin and Zhang Yu from Hungary!

Wang Rujin and Zhang Yu from Hungary

We are students from the University of Pecs, Hungary – a very historic university, currently in the second year of our master's degree, majoring in architecture. The two of us are very good partners. We always hope that we can design interesting practical and special buildings and hope to improve people's life satisfaction through architectural design in the future.

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

Architecture has many meanings to me. It is a career that I love and a profession that brings me a sense of accomplishment and happiness. Although I am still a student, I see a good manual model and a good drawing every time. The sense of accomplishment, especially the winning of this competition, made me very happy. Architecture also taught me to think about problems and see the phenomena that exist in society, such as the accessibility of public spaces. Some architectural spaces still have class and racial inequality and so on.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

Competitions can help improve my computer drawing ability and creativity at the fastest speed, and teamwork allows me to learn a lot from my teammates.

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 very necessary for students to participate in construction competitions. Some competitions do not have venues and other conditions, so you can use your imagination and creativity to brainstorm and often have unexpected results.
