Providing recognition to as many talents as possible

For every competition, the talent observatory’s members will assess the projects submitted by all participants to choose architects to be given visibility or any other specific opportunity. Regardless of the evaluations of the jurors of the competition, each member of the talent observatory can independently choose its own favorite project and turn it into the subject of publications, articles or other sharing platforms.
