The 4th edition of the Tubądzin Design Awards is an international competition for architects, designers and students.
Theme: #life #culture #human
At TDA, we make sure that the rules of the competition are transparent, the jury criteria are objective and the benefits offered to the winners are valuable. Our goal is to build a community that follows the challenges imposed by modern world and at the same time is able to meet global challenges.
For this reason, the 4th edition of the TDA competition is guided by three hashtags:
#life - Technological and urban developments and a changing climate continually present us with challenges that we want to face up to. Because life is a series of superimposed and interdependent processes, our goal is to design spaces for communities that meet these needs. The role of architects and designers is to change the world by creating everyday life - that's what #life is for us.
#culture - It is culture that makes us human. Taking care of the culture of space in people's everyday life is one of the most important needs of today's world.Human beings returning to the idea of interdependence prioritize relationships with others by surrounding themselves with culture.
#human - architecture and design are an inseparable part of human life, which is increasingly aware of its needs. Taking a long-term approach to newly created projects gives people a chance to live a better life, where the creator has taken into account how important interdependence is. Taking care of fundamental human needs.
