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

We believe architecture is the most comprehensive field of all. Even though we understand that architecture cannot solve social problems and change people’s life, we want to do our best to try to make everyone’s life a little more beautiful. Architects bare an important social responsibility for the greater majority of people, and while we often express our sense of self, we try to act with caution.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

We believe architecture visionary competitions are very much in touch with current social affairs. By participating in these competitions, we can stay in tune with world events and maintain our high design enthusiasm 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?

Visionary competitions are not something that will be realized but the process of designing is just as real as any built projects. Practice makes perfect. So we found it to be a very inspiring and enlightening process to participate and practice for our future projects. So we would strongly recommend to anyone who is interested in design to give it a try.
