On September 10 this year, the online voting for the Audience Award of the competition "Innovative Solutions for Railway Car Interiors Supporting the Mobility of Persons with Disabilities" ended. The competition was organized for first- and second-level students of the Faculty of Architecture at Poznan University of Technology. The largest number of votes and thus the first place was awarded to the house project by Piotr Marciniak and Nina Olga Zdanowicz. Congratulations!
The competition task was to develop a concept for the interiors of two compartments (including a compartment adapted for people with disabilities) of a passenger carriage, which were to present the best functional and aesthetic solutions.
The work was evaluated by a jury composed of: Arkadiusz Kawa, Bartłomiej Mikosz, Mikołaj Grzyb, Agata Bonenberg, Agata Gawlak and Ewa Angoneze-Grela.
On June 28, 2023, the results of the competition were announced. Three prizes and two honorable mentions were awarded. We wrote about the result of the competition in the article Results of the competition "Innovative solutions for the interiors of railroad carriages to support the mobility of people with disabilities".
Architecture & Business covered the event under its patronage, and in July this year it gave a vote to its male and female readers, announcing the competition for the Audience Award. Male and female Internet users were able to vote for two months for their favorite bathroom design, from among 20 wagon concepts. The winning entry was by Piotr Marciniak and Nina Olga Zdanowicz, receiving 703 votes. The authors will receive from us a diploma and a one-year subscription to the monthly magazine "A&B".
