Architecture competition Silent Meditation Forest Cabins Honorable mention - Kansas State University

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the winner of one of our Honorable mentions for the “Silent Meditation Forest Cabins” competition - Nicholas Horvath from United States!

Nicholas Horvath from United States

I am a graduate student at Kansas State University expecting a Master’s Degree in Architecture in the Spring of 2019. Throughout my academic career I have grow more intrigued by graphic design, as well as how we convey architectural ideas to clients and the public.

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

Architecture to me can be defined as the development of a place within the greater story of its context. The role of the architect is to generate a design which will enhance the users’ experience, while at the same time adhering to and enhancing the story of the surrounding context. Architects have the ability to shape society, so they must do it with a sense of humility, responsibility and a passion for their communities.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

I wanted to push myself to the limits of my design abilities, and have a chance to experiment with some design ideas I have had for a long time.

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

The advice I would give is if you have time to do these competitions then you should do them. It is important as a designer to challenge yourself and test your limits. Without these sorts of challenges you will never know how great you really can be.
