MAD reveals 2018 travel fellowship winners

MAD Architects has announced its travel fellowship winners for 2018. This ninth edition will support six architecture students from across the globe, and grant them the opportunity to travel to the destination of their choice in order to gain further insights into their architecture topics of research.
Initiated in 2009 by Ma Yansong, founder and principal partner of MAD Architects, the MAD Travel Fellowship provides young architecture students with the possibility to experience the spaces and places that inspire their architectural ambitions, and assists them in organising meetings with those architects that have been valuable to their personal research topics. All winners were selected by Ma Yansong after a careful judging process.

The six winners of the 2018 MAD Travel Fellowship, reviewed and selected by Ma Yansong, are:
