The winner of the $30 Amazon Gift Card for this month was able to get over 118 likes on their project via Instagram. The sixth Portfolio Challenge winner of 2021 for the month of July is…. Alberto Lozano Duran‘s Neubau des LVR-Hauses.
This project was thought as a complex where different typologies and functions try to reconnect again two parts of the city split in the time by the railways. The main problem in these competitions was the design of the entrance to the building, understanding the entrance as an experience that guides the employees or visitors inside the building from the street through different areas and experiences.
He worked with the Design Team from kadawittfeldarchitektur that worked on this project: Tim Witte, Alberto Lozano Duran, Pawel Pietkum, and Guangmin Huang.
