INTERNATIONAL DESIGN COMPETITION

YEARNING TO BREATHE 2023

RESULTS!

Foreword

Welcome to the unveiling of the results for the "Yearning to Breathe" design competition, hosted by Archiol Competitions. This competition has been a celebration of creativity, innovation, and a profound connection with nature. We embarked on this journey with the belief that the built environment can and should embrace nature, fostering a symbiotic relationship between humans and the natural world. Today, as we announce the winners, we are proud to witness the fruition of that vision.

The Yearning to Breathe competition challenged designers to reimagine urban living through the lens of biophilic design – an approach that seeks to integrate nature seamlessly into our built environments. We invited participants to explore the potential of biophilic principles in crafting residential spaces that not only meet the functional and aesthetic needs of residents but also nurture their well-being and connection with the natural world.

The response to this challenge has been nothing short of inspiring. Designers from around the world have showcased their talent, passion, and commitment to creating homes that transcend the ordinary, embracing the beauty, tranquility, and vitality of nature within the bustling urban landscape.

Throughout the competition, participants have demonstrated ingenuity and creativity in their designs, integrating elements such as natural light, greenery, water features, and sustainable materials to craft spaces that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also deeply functional and sustainable. They have reimagined the urban home as a sanctuary, a place where residents can find solace, rejuvenation, and inspiration amidst the chaos of city life.

As we reflect on the remarkable designs submitted to this competition, we are reminded of the immense potential of biophilic design to transform our cities and our lives. The winning entries exemplify the power of design to create environments that nourish the body, mind, and soul – spaces that resonate with the rhythms of nature and elevate the human experience.

Our heartfelt gratitude to all the participants who have contributed their time, talent, and passion to this competition. Your dedication and creativity have made this competition a resounding success, and we are honored to have been a part of this journey with you.
