UIA – World Architecture Day Poster Design Competition Winner Announced

Design ID No. 575 by Ana Rute Costa & Rúben Ferreira Duarte (Portugal)

The jury, consisting of Michael Beirut (USA), Sulki & Min (South Korea) and Trix Barmettler (Switzerland), wrote: “We like the simple message – the earth as a home, cherished by the sun. It immediately makes us feel better.” Your poster, the jury stated, conveys the “simplest, most powerful message. The world is our home, we make our homes in the world, and architecture is the means which we mediate our inhabitation.”

Evoking Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and a “magical hint,” the jury appreciated the childlike execution and narrative hand drawing, which “achieves the comforting effect with childlike painting.” For one juror, yours was the poster that made them think: “Oh, I wish I would have had that idea.”

The jury also attributed Second and Third Prizes and one Honourable Mention:

?Second: #610, Mattia Salvà (Italy)

?Third: #527, Davide Folador (Italy)

?Honourable Mention: #525, Reena L. (Hong Kong)
