We would also like to congratulate Petrit Halilaj for being assigned the 2017 Jury Special Mention "For imaginative interventions in the architecture of the Arsenale and Central Pavilion, which create relationships between the history of Kosovo and childhood memories."

We look forward to future projects by these extraordinary talents and wish them much success.
