We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winner for our “Legendary Bird Home 2020” competition - Weishi Chu from China.
Weishi Chu from China
I graduated from Bauhaus-Weimar University with Dipl. Ing.-Architect. My studio, Interdesign Architects, was founded in 2008 and is based in Tianjin, China. Many talented architects and landscape architects are on our team.
Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance what scale have you focused on/preferred, any signiﬁcant projects where company/individuals have been involved?
Our company is mainly engaged in the design and construction of public buildings.
What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?
Architecture is not only a job for me, but also my hobby. For me, the process of architectural design is like magic, changing the environment and people's behavior with our works. This is what I think design is, to change lives.
Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?
I think participating in the competition can be unrestrictive, to open the mind as much as possible, to inspire the heart with the most essential ideas. It should be a pleasure to present these ideas to the public.
What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture vision competitions?
It's really a fair and fun contest. I believe that everyone participating in an architectural vision competition can find their own stage.
