Ryterna modul Architectural Challange 2016 CODE: Restaurant


Winners of our Challange 2016

Finally, the day that all of you have been waiting for. Today is the day then we will present to you our third international competition winners! First, of all we would like to say thank you for all of you amazing people – participants and jury, who put thought and energy into this competition, without you our competition would litteraly fail. We are very happy to have participants from all around the globe bringing different ideas, viewpoints to our competition objectives each year.

Now about the winning projects:

Together with our jury members Aivaras Vozgirdas, Andrius Orlovas, Donatas Cesiulis, Elisa Nicoletto, Giacomo Caputo, Ignas Uogintas, Kęstutis Vaikšnoras  on last Friday we selected the winner works for this year challenge – restaurant. Selecting first place winner was quite easy, it was ranked high in all jury evaluations and was ranked in first or second position in all reviews giving no chance to other works, and it was the first such monogamous decision from our jury members in all of these three years time!

Second place was ranked lower in place rankings, but was found in majority of jury reviews, key element of that project was architecture, its looks and feel.

Third place was debated between two projects, one which showed a completely different approach to modular buildings and how it was designed, one of our jury members named it as a brain spill – opening your head and spilling all of your ideas into one sheet of paper, there was so much going on in a single sheet of paper! The other project, was very realistic, down to earth, just take it and build it right know approach, which has ability to be easily adapted to different situations. Yet we decided to stay with the first project, we wanted to encourage nontraditional thinking and this way hopefully to fuel future creativity in architecture as life doesn’t follow strict rules all of the time.
But just as a last year we would like to highlight honorable mention, a project that came very close to a third place.

Their opinion about project and this competition:

"This competition is a good chance to take a creative approach at modular construction. Our offered solution highlights esthetics of modular units instead of hiding it. Project joins functional scheme and clear iconic form. One special roof element allows to create special interior space and lighting."


Second place: Toska Kalinova and Vladimir Enchev

He previously worked in Toronto as an urban designer, and Holland as an architecture and urban design intern. His design interests are widespread, but can be summarized as non-traditional visualization, mapping, and contemporary urban & water issues. His personal urban research and design work can be found at Outsider Spatial Design.

His opinion about project and this competition:
"I took this year's challenge as an opportunity to speak about the ways in which modular, industrialized buildings can maintain meaningful relationships specific to the location in which they are deployed. Oftentimes when we think of modular, or pre-fabricated the mind tends towards thinking of mass-produced concepts: repeatable forms that have more to do with manufacturing than with the site or an architectural intervention. Of course, this is not the case: even a brick is a module, and what we can achieve with it is up to the architect's vision. In this same way, I was aiming to create my own modular language capable of mass-production like the brick, but also harnessing an inherent need for the architect to assemble the components in a meaningful way that responds to the specific conditions of the site. Hence the motto: meaningful, modular."

Thank you every body for joining our competition and we hope to see you next year!
