The project is elongated, vulnerable, dune, preservation of landscape, sand, material system, cultural landscape, sand house, intervention, grid of vertical wall, amber. Employed very simple architectural method but created quite huge difference on the site-but did not create the space which should be meaningful for the community.

Poetic, realistic and political. Fascinating architecture structure for a fascinating landscape. Jeroen Zuidgeest, Project Manager, MVRDV, the Netherlands.

2nd prize jury comments
Architectural concept is excellent, graphic and text presentation is good and technical detailing is good. Tomislav Dushanov, Herzog & de Meuron, Switzerland.
Visionary and relevant programmatic conceptual proposal. This has the potential to be elaborated as prototype applicable for many locations. Diagrams can be more clear or show flows and use green for green. Jeroen Zuidgeest, Project Manager, MVRDV, the Netherlands.
Carefully observed the old architecture, and it's good to find out the potential of the space that can be meaningful for the current society. Yosuke Hayano, principal MAD Architects, China.
3rd prize winner: Backhouse Care by Pieter-Jan Debuyst / University: KU Leuven, Belgium
3rd prize jury comments
A careful, well-composed and sensitive scheme for co-housing the elderly, integrated into an existing neighbourhood and proposing the construction of new links between adjoining streets. The design is quiet and inward-looking, both in its well-considered interior and in the planning. I recognised several of Alexader's more appealing patterns in the design, which reflects a wide range of subtle influences. Perhaps a little more human scale detail would be welcome inside and out, through this could be added with furnishings and artworks. Dr. Matthew Hardy- UK, The role of architecture in the well-being of communities lead by The Prince's Foundation for Building Community.
