The practice of architecture has become increasingly global, but firms participating in design competitions are finding a culture that is continually in flux. As one of the first two titles in the distinctive Architecture in Practice series from Wiley–Academy, this book enables the architect to negotiate the differing rules and processes that govern international competitions. Besides essential strategic material on preparing and presenting an entry, architects will find important tips to help them decide whether to enter a competition. Reviewing the winning case studies, which feature the most recent advances in presentation, graphic design and sustainability, can be a shortcut to success for the design professional. This is an invaluable companion for any architect or student who is intent on growing or establishing their practice.
