TMGH 1st prize winner from New Zealand

Johann Evin from New Zealand

I studied my Master’s in Architecture at the ENSAV School of Architecture of Versailles, France. After a professional experience at ChartierDalix architects in Paris, I moved to New Zealand and I’m currently working at Fearon Hay Architects.

I’m working on a broad range of projects from residential to urban master plans but with a high attention to detail. This detail-oriented approach has given me a completely new way of thinking: material composition, details of junctions to make each space unique and pure

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

Architecture is an experience. It has the ability to generate emotions by experiencing spaces but also by creating a dialogue with its context. It’s the constant research of composition. Architects need to understand the context and the programs they deal with to create an answer that will be experienced by people.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

Vision competitions are a great way for me to test my design skills and help me understand my own design vision. It is also a unique platform that allows young architects to express themselves.

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

Don’t be afraid of your ideas. Thinking, sketching and writing are truly important to mature your concept and understand the subject. It may seem obvious, but focus on the story you want the jury to see, so they understand the concept right away.
