Description

The Competition Grid: Experimenting With and Within Architecture Competitions is a comprehensive review of architectural competitions, exploring them as a tool for public policy planning, as well as an effective device that a variety of civic advocates can use to experiment with the formation of the built environment. UK and international practitioners, academics, developers and members of the press combine to reflect on contemporary competition practices and draw conclusions on the latest political, legal and social aspects. Each section features lively discussions with experts that draw on first-hand experience of competition processes, providing the book with a unique blend of theory and practice.

  • Written by a range of leading practitioners, experts and actors involved in architecture competitions
  • Insight in to both British and international competition practices
  • The first book on architectural competitions to provide a bridge between theory and practice
  • Interdisciplinary approach that reviews operational framework, design trends and experimentation
