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

Architecture, for me, it's a process that unites different disciplines: art, science, psychology, sociology etc., it's my job that I love and the kind of thinking when I create something, including fashion. The role of an architect in our society is to make this society comfortable.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

I like professional challenges, participation in architectural competitions gives me an opportunity to create different interesting projects. The necessity to get involved in the cultural, geographical, climatic and other aspects of designing competitive objects in different parts of the world - is the best way to develop the professional level.

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

I would advise to participate! In any case an experience is beneficial!
