Daria Studneva and Julia Studneva from Belarus

The participants of: The sixth Minsk architecture forum ‘What is a city square?’ (tutor: Owen Hatherley), Minsk Workshop “We represent sport in a different way: gender-sensitive spaces for playing”, Minsk (tutors: Milota Sidorova/ WPS-Prague and Ivan Kravcov/ the Bureau 35) also Daria Studneva: Spring school of architecture SESAM Terra Incognita (tutors: Ewa Rudnicka/ Poland, Marek Happach/ Poland), Minsk Julia Studneva: International Design Seminar 2017, TU Delft
In our understanding, architecture is a reflection of reality, a material embodiment of the idea of the human community. Architecture is omnipresent, it forms the environment in which everyone spends almost their entire life; being perceived by all the senses, it forms the mood, taste preferences and way of thinking of a person. Architecture is part of our daily life. The architect is the intermediary between reality and its material embodiment. In our architectural projects, we strive to combine functionality and beauty, practicality and art; create not static buildings, but buildings that may change over time.
Participation in the competition is always an incentive to search for new ideas, concepts, it is a challenge, first of all for yourself, a reason to get out of the comfort zone. It is also an opportunity to think about more global challenges, to go beyond student design.
You have nothing to lose. Unleash your imagination.
