Not only the final gala, but the entire Tubądzin Design Awards competition took place in a slightly changed formula, due to the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic influenced not only our everyday lives, often forcing us to work at home, but also forced us to take a new look at architecture and the world around us. Grand Prix winners have created a refuge building that allows users to hide in beautiful nature and escape the city noise.
The body of the designed building is inscribed in the space of nature. House users can freely design its layout, all spaces are located on mezzanines, and each of them provides a beautiful view of the lake.
The Gąska Studio project has crossed the boundaries of thinking about architecture as a rigid, defined space, and it launched contextual thinking. We rewarded architects’ courage in looking at the use of space and the role of architecture. #azyl discovers and broadens the boundaries of the perception of the design of objects, inserting them naturally into the natural surroundings, the boundaries of which are not violated – commented the architect and chairman of the jury Boris Kudlička.
Participants submitted their projects choosing one of several categories: Young Power, Everyday Design, Unlimited Architecture and Future Now. The last category is a response to the current situation. Projects submitted to the Future Now category are a new look at architecture that is to respond to the challenges of a changing world.
Congratulations to all winners!
