reportage on architecture

In 2019, we announced a student competition for a press reportage about architecture. Its main theme was architecture focusing on one of three issues: residential architecture, the city and public space. The first prize went to Kinga Zemla for her reportage titled "Occupation and resistance - urban guerrillas in the fight against the housing crisis" for interestingly touching on important topics of the modern world, an interesting take on the problem and a clear reporter's form.
