1st Prize Winner: “The Yr With out a Winter”

Tamás Fischer and Carlotta Cominetti of VIRGINLEMON

“We wrote our story excited about the second when the world has to cease and other people have to vary their habits to keep away from the collapse and to guard themselves from an unfamiliar occasion, like a really robust and sudden local weather change. We now notice how our story can appear to be the scenario the world is experiencing at this time: ready, boredom, loneliness, regrets, social media as the one approach out. However what we actually wished to spotlight is how emergency conditions can result in an actual turning level. Troublesome conditions lead individuals to assume extra and use their creativity otherwise. Since this pandemic began we have now been speaking a couple of life-changing occasion, which is strictly the topic of our story. Our lives will change, however for the higher..”

2nd Prize Winner: “SYMBIOSIS”

Aleksandr Čebotariov and Laura Kuršvietytė

“Our fairytale is a naive try to handle the problem of various sorts of crises we’re experiencing – not solely ecological, however social and existential as effectively. Within the routine of on a regular basis life, based mostly on capitalism, we are likely to lose ourselves to our jobs, our forests to fields and commerce. We neglect our capabilities, comparable to senses, of our pure organisms, and lots of different issues. We have been principally impressed by The Swamp Faculty, a Lithuanian pavilion on the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale, the place we volunteered, its creators Nomeda and Gediminas Urbonai, and after that dwelling in an city setting of Brussels stimulated our ideas, collected in Venice.”

3rd Prize Winner: “Lloronas of Juárez”

Albert Orozco and Edward Rivero

““Lloronas of Juarez” is a story of the continued violence towards migrants, particularly ladies and youngsters, that’s enacted by way of nationwide borders by settler-colonial states. By an inter sectional evaluation, we leverage protest artwork, historic narrative, and panorama urbanism to re-imagine what the ecologic across the Mexico/U.S. border can develop into if we transfer towards extra relational methods of connecting to the land. Particularly, our challenge critiques racist immigration insurance policies, gendered ideologies, and xenophobic logic that converge within the design and building of borders and prisons. We name consideration to the urgency of abolishing detention facilities that imprison migrant communities all through the US by way of a narrative of battle and resistance portrayed by the protagonists of the story. We hope to dream in solidarity with migrants, immigrant rights activists, essential students, artists, designers, in addition to different neighborhood organizers, who proceed to withstand empire-building towards the event of a future with out borders..”
