Architecture competition Pavilosta Poet Huts Honorable mention - TOKYO INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the winner of the Honorable mention of our “Pavilosta Poet Huts ” competition - Hiroyuki Gondo from Japan!

Pavilosta Poet Huts honorable mention - Hiroyuki Gondo

Hiroyuki Gondo from Japan

I am an architecture student from the Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan. Now I’m doing an internship at Civic Architects, an architecture firm located in Amsterdam. After I finish my one-year internship at Civic Architects, I will go back to university and start my Master’s thesis. It will be great if I could get an architect license in Japan before I graduate.

I am in the midst of training to design different scales of architecture and I like every scale of them. It is always interesting because there are various discoveries while crossing the scale. For my personal project, I designed a utensil for the exhibition of a professional manga artist and also organized some installation art projects.

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

In any form, creating a great place for someone is the most important role of the architect.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

I feel it is important to think about not only the proposals which would accept in your own country, but also try to create architecture which is strong enough for various people to be convinced, and the competition is a chance to practice.

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

We can learn tons of knowledge nowadays, but to really own them, output in your own way is necessary.
