The attendees highly appreciated this trilateral cooperation, happily emphasizing that it has become traditional.

            In the preliminary stage of the competition, 17 projects were presented to the  committee. 5 students’ works were selected for the final stage. At the final stage, after presenting the works, the committee discussed the projects, and the priority was given to the project, which was up-to-date in terms of implementation and reconstruction. Having studied the presented projects, Hayk Aloyan, Head of “Petros Aloyan” Foundation, attached importance to this event, noting: “The number of participating students is increasing year by year. I hope we are going to see better works more and more.”
