Dex - Dispersion

A photographic competition open to teams made up of undergraduate students reading for a degree in architecture and civil engineering at the University of Malta has been launched by DEX Workspaces, in collaboration with Vitra and the Society of Architecture and Civil Engineering Students (SACES) Malta. Public votes and a panel of judges from Vitra will determine the two teams that submit the best pictures. The winners will receive a set of stunning Vitra miniature clocks.

The competition is open to architecture students from all years who are currently studying at the University of Malta. Ten teams of three students each will be chosen for entry in the competition by SACES and each team will be given an iconic Vitra chair, which will be the main subject of their photographs.
