KSUAE architecture students were successful at the prestigious international competition Dokdo Guesthouse Design in South Korea
KSUAE architecture students, under the leadership of our porfessor Ilnar Akhtyamov, were successful at the prestigious Dokdo Guesthouse Design competition in South Korea, once again confirming the high level of KSUAE architecture students.
Students of various year of study who additionally work in the TIArch studio of KSUAE: Anna Alexandrova, Dina Kiyamova, Danil Nazarov, Sofya Shcherbak, Daria Shel, Radmir Valeev, Egor Kiselev, Ksenia Egorova, Diana Iksanova - submitted a number of projects at an international competition organized by Seoul Kunming University. The KSUAE studnets got third-degree diplomas and many enthusiastic responses from the competition organizers.
The competition task is discussing the problems with two nondescript rocky islands in the Sea of Japan, located approximately halfway between Japan and Korea. The Liancourt Rocks, such as Dokdo (South Korea) or Takeshima (Japan), are the basis of a state dispute between Japan and South Korea that has been going on for over 300 years. Currently the islands are located in South Korea.
The organizers of the competition - TED.A (The Department of Architectural Design) Kookmin University Graduate School of Techno Design - invited students from all over the world to create the concept of a small guest house on the Dokdo Islands, in individual applications. The project concepts had to meet the principles of sustainable and “green” construction in harsh climate conditions. At the same time, carry a historical and philosophical context.
In their projects, our students thought about the unique sensory experience of a traveler in a new space, about the connection of a person with nature and the history of this unique place. The use of sustainable construction technologies was also taken into account in order to minimize the impact on the environment. For each project, a model was made, which made it possible to best demonstrate the object and its adaptation to the complex terrain and climatic conditions of the territory.
