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

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.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

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. 

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

You have nothing to lose. Unleash your imagination.
