We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winner for our "Timber Pavilion" competition – Predrag Vujanovic from Sweden!
Predrag Vujanovic from Sweden
Studied architecture at the Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad, Serbia, where I got my bachelors and masters degree. Seven years ago I moved to Sweden where I have been working in several different offices.
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?
In my spare time I try to keep myself occupied with different concepts and competition projects that are of a somewhat smaller scale. Professionally, I'm working on various projects based in the town of Kiruna, northern Sweden, that is undergoing an extensive process of relocation. Projects range from a large education center to several residential blocks.
What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?
Architecture is a beautiful but complex amalgamation of several fields that in modern day and age require architects to further expand their knowledge, like never before, in order to build a more sustainable future.
Why do you participate in architecture competitions?
It became a fun and educational extracurricular activity ever since my student days when I, with a group of colleagues, entered our first big competition and won the third prize.
What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?
Quite simply, architecture competitions are the best test ground for new ideas and an exercise for elevating your skills and creative thinking.
