Get to know better: Ghost Town Challenge architecture competition 2nd prize winners - Gilles Retsin and Isaie Bloch!
Bee Breeders offers a weekly interview with one of the winners of our competitions. This week you can find out more about Gilles Retsin and Isaie Bloch, the 2nd prize winner of Ghost Town Challenge competition.
"With this competition we tried to show the responsibility of the designer – we turned around the brief and designed a cafe/dining hall for the locals, while maintaining the fabric of garages. We talk about the social agency of the building to actually radically contribute something to the site and the people. We don't like the political plans to redevelop this place with a shiny museum – we like to propose something which is more targeted towards the local people without becoming a boring and politically correct building." - Gilles Retsin
