Alberto de Salvatierra (Architecture) was among 13 finalists in Blank Space's 2018 Fairy Tales Competition. With submissions from more than 65 countries, "The award-winning entries explore current events and the creative process through wonderfully crafted short stories and artwork." His entry, "Cities of the Celestial Sovereigns" re-imagines creation mythologies through the syncretism of recognizable mythemes via coexisting 'mother' civilizations.
Also, De Salvatierra's project _Shift City was selected for exhibition at the "Designing Complexity" Exhibition in MONGEOMETRIJA 2018: The 6th International Conference on Geometry and Graphics at the Faculty of Technical Sciences, University of Novi Sad in Serbia this summer. Among the exhibition entries, _Shift City was awarded a special mention.
