6th edition IS ARCH AWARDS

for architecture students 2015

First prize

Jurgis Gecys | Curonian Spit - The identity of the Landscape
As identity is a mental representation of physical processes, perhaps a physical representation of mental processes is possible in Architecture itself. The project is determined by investigating possible parallel between visualization of landscape and conceptualization of its identity.
It is a critical environment where shifting sand covers and unveils multiple cultural traces throughout the time. The main concept is translation of material systems of this landscape into the realm of architecture. It is constituted as three Architectural interventions, where its spaces represents and evolves from the physical processes on the site.
