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

Architecture is a promise, it's a proposal of a future, the architect has to widen our narrow expectations

Why do you participate in Architecture Vision competitions?

Competitions allow us to focus on the experimental, for me it is a challenge revolving around re-questioning boundaries and norms of the discipline.

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

These competitions present the opportunity to work on concepts, and make participants demonstrate their vision.
