Sustainable Architecture


Winner Announcement


We are very happy to announce the winner of the Sustainable Architecture Challenge, created in cooperation with our sponsors and our 3D expert jury members. 

Participants were to share with us and the entire community their sustainable architecture project, as well as the sustainability factor that is in itself a distinguishing mark that generates a great social and environmental impact.

We want to say a very big Thank You to all the artists who participated and put all their effort and creativity into their masterpieces. We received really great work and concepts. And we want to say a special Thank You to our sponsors and our jury members for being part of the change. It was a pleasure.

Winner: 'Entreselvas / Tierno Clamor' by PAP 3D Studio

“LAVALLE PENICHE ARCHITECTS had an idea that was about to explode. This concept needed to be represented with the same passion with which it was conceived. In PAP 3D Studio we took on the task of representing it integrally and radically, we committed ourselves to showing an environment so pure that it would not give space to anything else than that.

This is the first part of a real estate development located in Yucatán, México, an area of Mayan culture. This project is composed of a labyrinth, a clubhouse and a natural spa, where nature is an essential part of relaxation and enjoyment.

The main idea is to integrate nature with architecture. For this purpose, materials are used that are part of the same environment and are also extracted from the same site. The construction systems are traditional, natural and ancestral, using techniques such as stone masonry, which consists of leaving the construction system exposed. Chukum paste is also used, a resin extracted from a tree of the same name, which is applied to the walls to give them a contemporary touch. This finish has its origins in the Mayan culture. Both, the masonry finish and the Chukum finish absorb water and maintain a cool environment, ideal for the humidity of the jungle and the high temperatures of the Yucatan. The maintenance of these finishes is minimal and in general no special care is required, much less in this case, when we want nature to integrate seamlessly with the architecture.

Evidently, the natural footprint on the environment has been insatiably respected. The paths are natural and the entire existing ecosystem embraces the project, the proposed vegetation is endemic in its entirety. In order to save electricity resources, we have chosen to avoid the use of A / C with a modern design of cross ventilation and natural lighting most of the time, thus minimizing the use of electricity and betting on the contact with nature as long and much as possible.

The best way to raise awareness is to connect. If we are silent we can hear the murmur of the trees as they dance, feel the caress of the plants as we walk, breathe the mystery in the air and taste the roots of the earth. What should we aspire to when we experience the contact of the soul with the divinity of the environment? This is a TENDER CLAMOR”

Some comments from our jury

Ander Alencar: I loved the way you managed to use the vegetation in the scene, it's very hard to use so many elements and make them harmonious and you did it, congratulations. 

Vasilis: Pipe materialized a complete project which is characterized by several beautiful moods, well-executed vegetation scattering, pretty nice materials and in a few words, very well composed 3D photographs. Congratulations. 

Adam Klich: Great mood created in the visualizations, shows the mysterious atmosphere of the environment around!
