The Jury selected 1 Winner, 4 Runners-Up and 7 Honorable Mentions which will be exhibited along side the winner.

WINNER // Vlad Tenu
MINIMAL COMPLEXITY

Along with its aesthetic beauty, technical superiority and elegance of detailing, the proposal was chosen because it
employs structural robustness, material effciency and an inherent logic of assembly. A minimal periodic surface structure is created with the repetition of only 16 different components. A macro-scaled modular cellular pattern emerges through symmetry that is infnitely expandable and open-ended while becoming differentiated at its edges. Ornament functions as a simultaneous expression of the whole and the part working in dynamic equilibrium.
