The first place award went to EPIDEMIC BABEL designed by D Lee, Gavin Shen, Weiyuan Xu, and Xinhao Yuan from China. The project envisions a rapid-deployment healthcare skyscraper for epidemic outbreaks.

COAST BREAKWATER COMMUNITY designed by Charles Tzu Wei Chiang and Alejandro Moreno Guerrero from Taiwan received third place. The project envisions a vertical housing community for fishermen in St. Louis, Senegal where rising sea levels have forced the inhabitants to move inland. The proposal is inspired by the traditional wooden architecture- a system of pillars, arches, and tensile structures.

The Jury was formed by Berrin Chatzi Chousein, Alper Derinboğaz, Jürgen H. Mayer, Manuel Navarro Zornoza, Michael Neumann, Ryuichi Sasaki, and Lu Yun.
