Using the latest technologies, both students created spectacular contemporary designs for a centre at the Jumeirah heritage area perfectly linking the ancient past of the UAE and its present, he said.

“It was not an easy job to link the archaeological site without transgressing or tampering with the existing monuments.”

The P&T competition, held this year under the theme “Giving back to community”, provides an opportunity for future architects to present their talents and develop their careers.

It also places an emphasis on both theory and practicality in an attempt to solve real challenges. Entries are evaluated by a jury comprising highly experienced architects within P&T and guest professionals to ensure a fair and diverse perspective in the evaluation process.

The competition offers a never-to-miss opportunity to winners to begin their careers with P&T, a firm that is regarded as one of the leaders in architecture.
