The jury was impressed by the thoughtful and uncomplicated approach. The project has a great potential not to remain a singular action, but generate an impact for the local communities and neighborhoods and thus the entire city on an urban scale. Highly appreciated elements were the versatile focus, the inclusive approach to community workshops and NGOs, as well as the high aesthetic quality which validates the entire action of reuniting the society.
