“Extremes or centers, that is the challenge”

Written on December 23, 2011 by Mariana Romero in News


At IE School of Architecture & Design there is a motivation to challenge students, and potential students too. Last Friday we closed the Architect’s Challenge which asked to answer a question in a two minute video. The deliverable was a YouTube video link answering this question: What are the challenges for architectural practices in the 21st century? (also asked in the admissions process to the master program)

Multiple answers could fall into this question and be correct. The challenge was to make a point in a video format with whatever resources available. Pretty broad still. The winner of the challenge answered with another question focusing on the value of reaching a balance in architecture. Considering diverse factors of landscape, form, function, the present and future contexts: should there be a choice over the extremes or the centers of these factors to reach a balance in architecture? Congratulations to the winner: Reginald Verspreeùwen, a young architect from Uccle, Belgium, and to the ones that took up the challenge.
