The national phase finals of the "Multi-Comfort House ISOVER-2017" contest were completed in Moscow, where GRAPHISOFT® was a partner for the second time.
The national stage finals, which were attended by 10 teams from several Russian cities, were held at the "Saint-Gobain Academy" training center. The winners were selected after the projects were presented, and after long deliberation by the jury. This year, the quality of projects increased significantly and in addition to the traditional three prizes, the jury decided to award an additional fourth prize.
All national stage winners were awarded with cash prizes, and the teams that took first and second place will represent Russia in the international finals, which will be held in Madrid from May 31 to June 2.
Team No 19 ArchTM (Tomsk State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering) not only became a finalist of the national stage, but was also awarded the special GRAPHISOFT prize for the best project created with ARCHICAD®.

"ARCHICAD is the tool through which we are able to realize our ideas. We have been working with it for about seven years, and every time, we are amazed at how many of its opportunities we have not yet mastered. What a surprise it was when we were awarded a prize by the developers!" said No 19 ArchTM team member, Julia Vinogradova.
"We would like to express our deep gratitude to the organizers: this competition is a good opportunity for young specialists to express themselves, to test their strengths and gain invaluable experience. We developed our project in ARCHICAD, as it is very convenient, but were pleasantly surprised by our victory for the GRAPHISOFT prize. And the victory in the national stage of the contest was also a big surprise for us," said Alena Kolesnikova, team No 19 ArchTM participant.
Denis Skripchenko, member of the No 19 ArchTM team, said: "I am sure that the possibilities of the ARCHICAD program have not been fully studied yet. However, the knowledge that we received within the walls of the Tomsk State Architectural and Construction University is enough to prepare solid architectural projects and even win prizes with these projects. ARCHICAD and the "Multi-Comfort House ISOVER" contest helped us develop professional skills and open new horizons.”
