In keeping with “Transformation” the general theme of the competition, German architect Meinhard von Gerkan defined this year’s program: “Place, Tradition and Modernism in Conceptual Unity and Diversity.” The project addressed science in the contemporary world and used culture, geography, landscape and climate as references points.
