Back from International Archiprix 2013 - Moscow

Archiprix workshop participants
I just came back from the International Archiprix 2013 workshop and award ceremony in Moscow: two weeks of inspiration and great fun. The value of endless discussions with ambitious people from all over the world is hard to describe. It is very exiting to see how everyone's different cultural background influences their work as architects and urban planners.

Inspiring talks have broadened my view of the meaning of architecture. Like the Archiprix jury mentioned, there is an obvious difference arousing between the current generation of architects and their predecessors. There is a growing engagement among young architects with a broad range of issues not directly related to architecture. More and more question the role of architecture (and architects!) in a changing society. This was clearly visible in the competition entries.   

I want to thank everyone for their great company and congratulate the winners!
