The bronze prize was also awarded to LMA teaching staff, Ingūna and Holgers Elers.

All the award-winning works will be included in IIID Award book and displayed in the traveling exhibition in ten countries.

The head of the functional design sub-department of LMA Maija Rozenfelde says: "The ability to see and define the community is the cornerstone of each study project and has truly succeeded.
