We took part in the competition with the motivation of our instructors. Our aim was to experiment our skills at a platform supporting our development. I am very happy to have participated in this competition. It was a very valuable experience for us. Each piece of iron in our project represents a person and they become stronger when they stand together. I am extremely pleased with the education we receive in EMU Architecture Faculty.
