In the opinion of the jury, the project is distinguished by exceptional urban, formal and aesthetic sensitivity. As emphasized by the competition judges evaluating the work, noteworthy is also the designer's mature and conscious approach to the environment, noticing its problems and attempting to solve them, and the unorthodox approach to the proposed housing solutions gives the form-saving and modest buildings an individual expression.

Equal 1st place was awarded to Michał Orlikowski from the University of Arts in Poznań for his work titled "Inter-school Water Sports Center in Choszczno"; supervisors: Andrzej Kurzawski, Hugon Kowalski.

The jury appreciated the expressive gesture in a restrained form. The consistent and logical solution of the structural layout and the conscious use of materials is a strong point of the project. The above solutions result in a skillful response to the context and add new value to the surroundings. The conscious maintenance of the building in a simple and modest form testifies to the author's great sensitivity and his attention to preserving the natural form of the lakefront. Noteworthy is the meticulous refinement and high aesthetics of the project.

Second places were awarded to the projects of three teams composed of: Alicja Maculewicz and Emilia Dzięgelewska, Hanna Żylińska and Maciej Wiśniewski, and Agnieszka Baszak, Bartłomiej Bruzda and Paweł Danielak.

In the jury's opinion, the project makes expressive urban design theses, such as the height dominant and the sunken plaza, with great sensitivity and respect for the surroundings, while at the same time fitting well into the historical urban fabric of Genoa. The sensitivity of the designers to existing buildings, visible in contemporary architectural solutions and detailing solutions, also deserves recognition from the Competition Jury.

The work titled "Coppers" by Hanna Żylińska and Maciej Wiśniewski from the Faculty of Architecture, Poznan University of Technology; supervisor: Radosław Barek, Ph.D., was awarded for the unconventional approach to the proposed architectural expression of the buildings, modern reference to historical forms and sensitivity of the selected solutions.
