How can we design our public spaces that stimulate our senses, follow our social needs and play a key role in allowing the users to reconnect with our environments and our communities
PROJECT NAME : DMZ: N38
NAME OF WINNERS : YeonHo Lee, WooSeok Jang, DongGyun Ha
PLACE: South Korea
What is the evocative power of a name? Just the mere mention of three letters – DMZ, brings haunting memories for millions of people around the globe. The name is also a place, “sacred” in the sense of what it represents. To conceive that this fence – illuminated – could represent the unification of two counties, is a belief worth holding. In this sense, “Lightius Loci” becomes “Hopeius Loci,” the place of hope.
PROJECT NAME : LIGHTENING A MODERN ODYSSEY
NAME OF WINNERS : Maria-Chrysoula Akrivou, Antonis Athanasiou
The jury was very moved by this proposal, not only by its social relevance, but also with the idea to erect a form of memorial in honor of the migrants who have perished at sea while fleeing the war. The use of light as a landmark, like a lighthouse, becomes pragmatic, symbolizing an unprecedented international social crisis.
PROJECT NAME : AB AETERNO
NAME OF WINNERS : Irena Milojeska, Simona Tasevska, Hristina Sekuloska
