Kada se Sandra Marković samostalno prijavila na takmičenje Architecture Student Contest, nije ni slutila da će se otiću u Varšavu na internacionalno takmičenje. Kada je upoznala rad studenata iz drugih zemalja, shvatila je da je Srbija mala zemlja sa visokim kvalitetom obrazovanja. Povodom obeležavanja 20 godina od osnivanja studentskog takmičenja u Beogradu, Sandra je podelila utiske o ASC sa nama.

Pre dvadeset godina je u Srbiji osmišljen koncept studentskog takmičenja koje promoviše visoke standarde komfora, održivosti i energetske efikasnosti u oblasti građevinarstva i arhitekture. Ideja je potekla od tima iz Srbije i usvojena na nivou Saint-Gobain grupe, koja je već sledeće, 2005. godine, proširila takmičenje na internacionalni nivo. Danas ovo takmičenje okuplja više od 1.300 studenata iz celog sveta, sa 167 univerziteta i iz 30 zemalja.

Marko Matejić je 2009. godine učestvovao na Architecture Student Contest i smatra da svako ko učestvuje na neki način izađe sa takmičenja pametniji i bogatiji.

Breathing is an essential activity. It's basic that very often we forget that air is coming inside our lungs all the time. Indeed, on a daily basis we inhale and exhale the equivalence of 60 bathtubs, and definitely the quality of the air is rarely questioned. We are sure that a lot of people haven't even thought about the small and almost invisible particles coming through their nose and interacting with the complete human system.
Tastes and colors are anybody's choice! However, you should know that colors impact your mood and well-being in your daily life. The color of your walls matters and goes beyond the simple environment you wish to create: it influences your mood, well-being and health. Each color creates its own emotional response consciously or subconsciously in ourselves.
The environment plays a crucial role when it comes to well-being, and our mood depends on several external factors. Whether it is at work or in our homes, luminosity, pollution and sounds need to be considered. How to maximize your general comfort and evolve in a healthy environment? Here are some solutions that are easily put in place to boost your well-being.
