Still on the fence? Take some advice from Benno Schmitz, a Beuth Hochschule für Technik Berlin student and our 2015 grand prize winner for his project, The Museum of Contemporary Arts in Bonn: “Stop dreaming and just do it!”

“The most important thing that I conveyed is the impact that my project would have on the community in Circasia,” said Bermudez. “Precisely detailing how my project could improve the ecology of the creeks and the quality of life for the townspeople is what I think gave my submission an edge.”
