Pro Architectura Prize
The architect profession has two faces: one is the humane, drawn towards the ideas, which is reconsidering the existential conditions of mankind all the time, that of the creator who worries about the environment, and the other is the materialistic, who has the world of technical knowledge in his power. To have good architecture, both of these abilities or the aspiration to have them must be present at high level. In this complex, and extremely changing environment that we work in today, one must be especially empathic in order to carry out one’s architectural tasks at a high level. We believe in the transfer of ideas and experience from generation to generation, and that design is team work – therefore only a diverse and open circle of constructive people can provide high level, creative and high-spirited responses to the questions of more and more complex tasks.
