The change that daylight from above brings into buildings is magic, that we experience with each project we are part of. Sharing these good examples and the announcement of good architecture is our goal since the initiative started back in 2014. “Bringing Light to Life” is an architectural award for real projects with roof windows.  

Today, for the sixth year in a row we are expecting your stunning designs with daylight and fresh air through the roof.

2018 projects from all over the world: THE PHOTOPHONE HOUSE - the sound of daylight by student; Lara Brmbolić. Teacher; Neda Cilinger from Sveučilište u Zagrebu, Croatia.”The idea of the project is to highlight the importance of our sensory receptors and especially it is sensitive to the children in order to introduce them into the world of senses and physics by poking the curiosity in them and waking up the inner child in the adults. The photophone house is a space of empathy and nuances where daylight and acoustics dance together.” Find all #IVA2018 projects by tapping the link in our bio. #studentsofarchitecture #architecturestudent

LIGHT FOREST by student; Yichen Fan and Cheng Fan. Teacher; Jizhong Shao from Nanjing University of Technology, China. “The design mimics the morphology of the plant cells and uses the Tyndall effect to supplement the light's shaded rainforest underlying plants. To make some plants that are not suitable for growing under tall plants to survive at lower latitudes, to enrich the ecological plant circle in the greenhouse. Place greenhouses in urban parks to provide a new, natural rest area for reinforced concrete forests.” Find all #IVA2018 projects by tapping the link in our bio. #studentsofarchitecture #architecturestudent

2018-projects from all over the world: LIGHT & WATER by student; Jean-Baptiste Martin. Teacher; Sophie Brindel-Beth from Ecole d’Architecture de la Ville et des Territoires a Marne-la-Vallee, France. “How can an architectural project reveal a concern for tomorrow? And how to highlight the challenges that will arise to humanity in a more or less close future? Water is transcended only by light that gives it real visual properties. Typical patterns of light crossing the water are projected on the walls. The water turns into a fast and vertical movement and become a mist.” Find all #IVA2018 projects by tapping the link in our bio. #studentsofarchitecture #architecturestudent
