Architecture competition "Nemrut Volcano Eyes" 3rd prize winners - S64 architetti

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the winners of the 3rd prize of our “Nemrut Volcano Eyes” competition - Giuseppe Pastonesi, Desislava Georgieva, Marchela Varbanova and Nina Gerosa from Italy!

Giuseppe Pastonesi, Desislava Georgieva, Marchela Varbanova and Nina Gerosa from Italy

S64 is a studio, a laboratory, a creative space. The head architect Giuseppe Pastonesi establishes his work on passion and competence, qualities that are reflected in his constant search for emotion and trust, as it is his belief that the success of any project is founded on the relationship between professional and client. S64 Architetti is founded in 2012 and based in Milan (Italy). Architect Nina Gerosa has had a strong presence at the studio for years, Desislava Georgieva and Marchela Varbanova are interns graduating Bachelor degree at Politecnico di Milano, the same university that the other two members of the team studied in.

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?

Projects that come out of the studio range include all kinds of fields from staging cultural and business events, stands, showrooms and store interiors. The team follows the project from the initial input up to the timely realization. Each project will always be unique, followed attentively from beginning to end and focused on creating emotions in the people who interact with it.

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

Architecture is an idea, a sketch, a material. Architecture is “thinking”. Architecture is a better place to live.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

This kind of competition is a good field for matching with other points of view. It can be fascinating to observe how a place can be conceived by other architects and designers. It gives you an opportunity to try different approaches and experiment which is definitely something you don’t see every day.

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

Naturally the training for this type of competition can be useful for developing personal skills. Participating in architectural vision competitions will undoubtedly broaden your horizons as well as in depth knowledge and experience. The sporadic chance to reach a good result at the end gives visibility and awareness.
