Why did you accept the offer to become a YAA Jury member?

roman brychtaI got myself familiar with the last year’s results and I was pleasantly surprised. Competitions have an important place in my life and I am sincerely pleased that opportunities for commissions are offered also to young architects through competitions. Works by young authors are characteristics in that they bring new, refreshing opinions and solutions. And I like being refreshed.
