1st PRIZE WINNER
Be like a fish in the water
JODEL BISMARC MEKEMTA
I am a student and am currently working on my master thesis project. Writing inspires critical thinking in collective thinking which is key to the enlightenment of people’s consciousness. Already winner of several competitions and architecture prizes published in international magazines, I am convinced that just as the writer heals society, architecture teaches, shares, balances and offers us a second life.
2nd PRIZE WINNER

Bruno Cardoso de Almeida Pirro
