The competition winners are as follows:
Best Overall Submission: Maryn Hekker, Freelance Interior Architect (Amsterdam, Netherlands)

Summary of judges’ comments: This is a truly visionary concept for a reimagined world. This is the type of submissions I was hoping to see. So well done! While it is a sprawling work, I’m impressed that the detailed parts were modeled with a 3D tool.

Best 3D Modeling: KANG Jian, student at The University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong, China)
Summary of judges’ comments: This work is totally eye-catching. It’s a simple design and well organized. Good subtle solution for housing with great analysis. Final strategy is clear but design solution is still diagrammatic.
