Some updates on our design, Kinoko Patio for Scadding Court’s Market 707:
We made it to the top three! Thanks for everyone’s votes.
Sadly, we did not win the competition, but the process has been a really great experience. Some things I learned while working on this competition:
1. Architects have a great deal of practical skills, ranging from design, software tools, visualization and construction (even more than I imagined!)
2. Working in interdisciplinary teams really brings out skills that you may have never thought were skills.
3. My planning education has given me a deep understanding of theory, which comes in handy!
I think this was a great opportunity for our first competition, and potentially the start of more designs in the future. Keep an eye out!
