01.Oct.2016 Viktor Karľa, Ján Kanócz, Miroslava Mertová – Honorable Mention, Most Innovative

In a pivotal design that purposefully does not resemble at all a traditional beacon, this circular abstraction delivers. Being primarily being made from wood, the accessible ramps that lead up to the top of the lighthouse serve as a place to learn about the wider geographical area as well as be a part of new experiences within the space. These ramps would be made of a newly introduced material, transparent wood; this vertical communication pathway is the core of what makes the Karla Beacon a representation of what it means to produce quality and be true to new and progressive shapes and sizes.
