Architecture Competition RE-Stock London Housing 3rd prize winner – BERLIN UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the 3rd prize winner of our “RE-Stock London Housing” competition – Jierong Lyu from Germany!

Jierong Lyu from Germany

I am currently completing my master’s degree in architecture at the University of the Arts in Berlin. I was born in China, graduated from China Academy of Arts with a bachelor’s degree of engineering in architecture. I have recently been awarded a scholarship in the field of architecture by DAAD in Germany.I  also learned a lot from my internship experience at SOM and HPP in Shanghai, where i was involved in different stages of projects of different scales and types.

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

Since I decided to study architecture and become an architect, architecture has not only become my major and profession but has also permeated my life. For me, architecture is always for the people and, at the same time, by the people. Some successful designs can identify and exploit the needs of users, with the possibility to constitute a better sense of space for people. And architects have the responsibility and ability to achieve a comprehensive consideration of beautiful, solid, and applicable architectural space with critical and innovative thinking on social issues.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

The housing shortage is one of the most important global social issues of today, and it was interesting to me to see how we could respond to it through the language of space. Architecture vision competitions provide a great opportunity and platform to see and learn a lot from other great works and ideas.

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

Participating in competitions is always recommendable for architecture students, it gives us the opportunity to grow and is always rewarding to learn from it.
