We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the 3rd prize winners of our "Virtual Home" competition – Shahd Serhan, Mariam Farrah and Rawan Da'na from Jordan!
3rd prize winners from Jordan
We are based in Amman, Jordan. And had our bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of Jordan in 2021. We have a common background graduating from the same university, yet each one of us had a different passion to follow and work toward achieving. Rawan directed her attention for details into interior design, Mariam fulfilled her interest into research and theories in completing higher education, and Shahd focused her curiosity for human interactions and aesthetics into arts and research.
Since we graduated from the same university, we relatively went through similar architectural experiences; from a tiny villa to a research center and large-scale urban development projects that aimed to be implemented, carrying together the main common skill that university taught us; self-learning. After graduating, each one of us has independently put the different perspective into small-scale architecture, research, graphic and interior design projects.
Architecture for us is a manifestation for humans’ lives, and how they circulate within it. An architect draws and frames these lives.
We participate in architectural competitions to strengthen our skill set and see how we stack up against other architects across the globe. moreover, observe various architectural trends. Along with adding more exciting projects to our portfolios.
Participating in competitions allows individuals to explore their own sense and originality in architecture without the constraints that can affect their job or grades despite the results, and it allows them to evaluate their skills in global terms rather than local ones. So do not hesitate to try that out!
