Abstract

European architectural competitions are described and evaluated for built environment students, professionals and people commissioning new buildings and public spaces. Case studies of competition design submission, with competitions data are supplemented with discourse on the culture and practice of competitions, their methodologies, opportunities, potential and pitfalls. The need for a unified language model for improving competitions practice in Europe is discussed and proposed.
