Ponzio educating young architects

The 7th Edition of the Young Architects’ Awards, which started in autumn last year, has concluded. The large group of contestants from around Poland: students of architecture and budding architects was presented with a set of difficult tasks: completing the “Young architect’s challenge” and preparing an architectural design in cooperation with civil engineers. “Design that connects. Connected by rail” – the task required designing a train station with its immediate infrastructure in a small town.
The results were announced on the 29th May; we congratulate all the talented participants whose projects were awarded!
The organisers of the competition, Builder magazine, provided numerous additional activities: Young Architects’ Days at technical universities, workshops, meetings with industry partners. Due to the ongoing pandemic, some of those events took place online. Ponzio continues its participation in the educational program as Contents Partner. Paweł Majchrowski, the head of the Project Coordination Department at Ponzio and member of the Competition Jury, praised the high level of this year’s competition.
“Students and budding architects were presented with a challenging task: they had to combine their architectural and engineering knowledge with the proper use of our technological solutions. Curtain walling was perfectly suited for the “Design that connects. Connected by rail” project, as can be seen in the “Konstancin-Jeziorna Station” and “ Golden Station” designs. Most designs required the use of fire-resistant solutions (Ponzio PE78EI DL). To sum up, it’s evident how important such meetings with the youngest specialists in our industry are – they get to learn about the latest solutions to use them in their designs, first in the competition and in the future, maybe in practice as well.”
