Sixth edition of the competition for the architects “FAKRO – Space for new Visions” is completed. Once again organized by FAKRO, a global manufacturer of roof windows and loft ladders and by A10 Magazine for European Architecture, the contest began in February. Participants of the competition faced the following task: to create a concept – visualisation of an architectural design of any building using FAKRO products.
The building must be designed so that its realisation is possible with the use of available technologies. These, however, are not all the requirements of organizers of the competition. The architect should also draw attention to the fact that the designed building is full of light, functional, user and environmentally friendly. Deadline for submitting the contest project was on June 8, 2015.
The contest received nearly 60 projects from different parts of the world such as Belarus, Spain, Czech Republic, Poland, Italy as well as Thailand, United States, Mexico and Great Britain.
