"Graduation Projects that converse with the world, Graduation is not the end but the new chapter"

TEAM20 focuses on the graduation projects and aim to give students a platform for their unique voices in terms of architecture, urban and rural development, built environment issues and in general, man-land relationship. Graduation projects can be seen as architecture graduates’ accumulation of efforts throughout their academic years. The process involves deciding the topic, choosing base, investigation to proposing a solution; students have to overcome many obstacles to complete the project. This is why graduation project will always hold a special place in all architecture people’s hearts. Started out in 2013 and will be celebrating our 8th year, this event encourages exchange between architecture and planning sectors as well as students’ self-expression. Due to covid-19, we have decided to hold the even online this year. Hosting online also means a great opportunity for us to expand our scope of participants in the other countries and this can elevate the quality and quantity of interactions in the architecture and planning field. In other words, 2020 will be a greater stage for all graduate students to present their graduation projects.
