01.Oct.2016 2016 MNPG Arch Competition Winner and Honorable Mentions

The 2016 MNPG Arch Competition was for the design of a tech port beacon that infuses architecture, technology, ecology and modern living.

Benjamin Pra and Amandine Graczyk – Winner of the 2016 MNPG Arch Competition

Fraction House is the work of Benjamin Pra and Amandine Graczyk, an expression that supersedes reality, but is cemented in classical appreciations of architecture as well.

Conversational motion are also facets of the proposal that encourage discourse about different progressive topics. Most importantly, this is not just […]

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 […]
