“What is architectural quality and what does it trigger?
How does it work for the homeless who don’t have a physical space to call home?
How can we make cemeteries more diverse again, implementing current urban issues such as ownership, living models, density, land policy and ecology?
Is there an alternative to the infinite multitude of tents that make up the typical image of a refugee camp?
Could infrastructure and architecture work together to reshape the idea of territory?”

This sequence of questions shows concerns, intentions, desires and ambitions from some of the authors of the Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) 2020. Most of them are starting points for a process of research that goes together with a development of a specific design.
