The event was held in Lagos on Tuesday, 8th day of August 2017 by 9am at Muson Centre, Onikan, Lagos and for the first time Creative Architects was launched in Abuja on Thursday 10th, August 2017 by 9am at The Collonade; Nicon Luxury Hotel. Creative architects is an annual event organized by Chronos Studeos. The event is the postlude to The Competition (Our annual competition for student architects in Nigeria). At the event, we present awards and certain chosen people of high caliber speak about the industry and making headway in the industry.
The event had so many awesome highlights from the exhibition, opening speech by co-founder Chronos Studeos Arc. Hassan Anifowose to the speeches by the speakers like; Theo Lawson, Binta Suleiman, Olumide Ayodele, Hassan Anifowose, Moradeke Okunrinboye and Hussein Anifowose.
The dynamic duo is definitely a force to be reckoned with; Hassan is the motivational speaker while Hussein is the sales guy. The presentations were very inspiring and impressive.
The portfolios from the winners of The Competition 2017 and other notable architects out there were announced. The Competition 2017 ended on Monday, 31st July 2017 and three major winners have emerged. Yes major, because all the contestants are winners. It is a fact that brilliant, adept and clever minds are all over the architectural industry as this was confirmed when the submissions started rolling in. It was amazing to see. But as it is, Chronos Studeos had to choose the three most exceptional of the winners. One lesson I have learned from the submissions of all the contestants is that TEAMWORK IS INDEED GOOD WORK.
Without much ado, I present the top three winners and their score points:
Top 3 Entries Score Position
Owoyele Olumide, Iheanacho Victoria, Babalola Tobi 15.76 1st Place
