ARCHITECTURAL THESIS AWARD (PFC/TFG)
ARCHISTART FINAL DEGREE COMPETITION
Con objeto de mejorar la visibilidad de los proyectos realizados, ATA2019 ha sido el primer concurso al que ha sido presentado el PFC realizado el año 2018. Independientemente del resultado, siempre es una buena manera de poder realizar una auto-crítica al resultado del proyecto mismo. Este concurso se ubica en Italia, de la mano de la pagina Archistart.net y el objetivo es el mismo de dar voz a todos aquellos proyectos que acaban quedando guardando polvo en el archivo.
In order to improve the visibility of the projects carried out, ATA2019 was the first contest to which the 2018 PFC was presented.

In the first stage of the competition, Carl Milles advised Saarinen to change the bases of each leg to triangles instead of squares.
