Abstract

In order to progress the mapping of a unified language model for architectural competitions and design contests Project Compass, in this summary draft, record their interpretation of UK terms. This list of words, with a particular focus on design contests are some of those considered to be the most confusing in competition discourse. The ‘legal language’ found within Directive 2014/24/EU has been referenced to help define and ascribe common meaning, wherever appropriate. In the interests of transparency further feedback and input is invited to be put forward towards this work in progress, to contribute to informing the results.
