Architecture Competition Timber Pavilion Honorable mention – LUND UNIVERSITY

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winners for our "Timber Pavilion" competition – Vilhelm Tham, Felix Olofsson, Svante Hallgren and Adam Rydén from Sweden!

Honorable mention winners from Lund University

We are three second year students and one third year student studying at The School of Architecture at Lund University.

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?

Exclusively school projects.

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

We are still studying and are in constant search for what architecture is and what it means. After discussing these questions in the group we have somewhat agreed on some common definitions.

For us architecture is ultimately a human expression in the form of built structure. Every person that creates and reacts to architecture is contributing to the field. Architecture is a language whose importance lies in both the author and the reader of the work. The role of the architect is to use this language responsibly. Responsibility in architecture is according to us, describing the human experience while being considerate of our planet's resources and other inhabitants.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

This is our first architecture competition, and we wanted to participate in order to gain experience with this medium. We believe that architecture competitions are a great entry port to the real world of architecture. Open competitions have an important democratic function in helping young architects to show their work.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?

From the perspective of being a group of students, time management has been an important factor. Simultaniously doing projects in school and doing a competition can be challenging, so make sure that you plan and divide work well as a group. Also do not forget to be experimental and have fun, you have nothing to lose by participating.
