Dear Competition crew,

in Description for Room C49 it says "without windows". Does that mean that the room has no windows or does it mean, that possible windows should not be taken into consideration concerning the relation of walls to size of room?
Thank you. Best regards.

2. Can you tell me what the level of the pond is at the top and bottom and if it is OK to drain it and build over it or is there a possibility that it can be cleaned up?

Question:
To Whom It May Concern
On two occassions, I forwarded questions that I regard of utmost importance.
Unfortunately to date there is no reply.
I try again and hope there will be some reaction to them:
1/ Would it be possible - as an alternate to the 1:800 scale model - to submit computer rendered 3D images prepared from different viewpoints?
2/ The explanatory text on the survey indicates "Area for museum housing". Does it mean: site allocated for the museum complex?
Again: your kind and prompt answer will be greatly appreciated.
Answer:
We apologize for a delay – we answer the questions as soon as possible. Some questions need more time to answer. We apologize for that.
1. Model on scale 1:800 must be presented; 3D models can not be presented as model. It is aloud to present 3D models as extra materials additional to model.
2. “Area for museum housing” is for museum complex required with room program.
