240 students from 38 countries entered the competition and together they created a total of 163 projects. The over 800 Inspireli jurors chose the 30 finalists then the final jury selected the winners of 6 different categories. These were related to certain areas of future development near the city of Starigrad – Miris Garden. The winning projects will serve as initial ideas for the final design of the buildings in the Croatian locality.
The winning students from Czech Republic, Slovakia and Kosovo created their ideas with great respect for the local landscape and nature, integrating leisure spaces with businesses, hotels and residences. One of the main prizes of the competition was a five-day workshop on 3D visualizations in the Architecture Department of the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague. All the winning projects can be seen here.
For 2024, Inspireli’s Edu-Project competition will be the reconstruction of Schindler’s Ark in the Holocaust Survivors’ Museum and the sustainable living area at the factory where Oscar Schindler saved 1200 Jews during WWII.
