ACADEMY OF ARCHITECTURE
When aspiring architects draw objects and spaces of the future
Students from the Academy were invited to take part in the challenges launched by two well-known companies: BIC and ASSOS. BIC asked participants to reconsider two of its historic objects, such as lighters and the Cristal ballpoint pen, having them develop new and original features. Meanwhile,
ASSOS, official sponsor of the Swiss and Brazilian national cycling teams, made their VIP lounge at their Lugano store available to the future architects and put them in charge of the interior design.
More information on the challenges launched by BIC and ASSOS.
