This gives visitors an opportunity to experience the sense of nature even inside the building.

The perimeter of the building embraces people and nature from different corners of the city. Special issue on competitions, , April Analyzing the selection process and encouraging those involved discussing their priorities when ranking the entries is certainly beneficial for the profession and adds to an ongoing dialogue about design.

Considering a less glamorous Canadian context of national and international competitions, Chodikoff, former chief editor of Canadian Architect, now executive director of Architecture Canada, discusses : The critical significance of carefully structuring a design competition so that the desired outcome can best represent the goals of the client while ensuring the highest calibre of design excellence possible. Reviewing closely a series of case studies of French competitions and their winners, he critically wonders if national prizes should not be considered effectively as governmental devices : i.

Design competitions and their multiple outcomes outside the realms of building industries Why should all the projects of a design competition be disseminated? The question remains an important one when considering the current state of architectural practices and publications, as architects are often reluctant to disseminate architecture at the design stage and, oddly enough, the competition phenomenon is always threatened by its spectacular nature.

There is a tendency to display and recognize only winning projects, with a limited run for public exhibitions that in no way give all submitted projects any long-term visibility. In our era of communication agents, most public organizers seem to be more and more concerned with controlling the message.

It brings the question of the valorizing of architecture as project : the very cognitive and creative device at the center of professional competence.

At the same time, as many designers often recognize, ideas and concepts are meant to travel, as do built and unbuilt projects.

From this point of view, both built and unbuilt projects have equal value within the production of culture, quality and knowledge. The study of design competitions in the fields of architectural, urban and landscape design therefore reveals not only the paradoxical tensions underlying these disciplines of the built environment. However numerous the studies and inquiries gathered in the present book, there is still too little research done on the competition phenomenon, in stark contrast to the plethora of richly illustrated monographs.

Photo JPC Indeed, as we have attempted to demonstrate through this survey, more and more researchers have decided to devote themselves to the study of competitions.

Be they in Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, France, Canada, Germany, the USA, Finland, Brazil, Switzerland or the Netherlands, they study whether the competition is an effective manager of architectural quality and an efficient and reliable instrument of policy procurement. Adamczyk here reflects on the theme of architectural representation to show how competition studies allow for a transcultural and transhistorical approach of disciplinary issues and indeed a renewal of knowledge in the fields of environmental design.

Quality, culture, and knowledge : it is on these three productive roles of design competitions that this international inquiry finds its conclusion. Beyond this longitudinal section, the constitution of competition databases, ideally compatible and interconnected, appears to be the next step for this research field to prove its relevance.

This web of databases should be meant to transform the understanding of the multiple roles of competitions and projects for both the profession and the discipline.

If the competition situation promotes research and experimentation, our hypothesis is that the qualitative judgment procedure at the heart of it will continue to contribute to the building of meaningful public spaces [Fig.

Like any true world heritage, the archival and sharing of competition projects will then nourish the debates with the values and orientations of our societies, and lead to the intensification of reflexive practices and cultural mediations within future architectural, urban and landscape design projects. In other words, through competitions, one can see the edification of our future heritage.

Notes Moussavi, F. Silberberger, Ph. In Switzerland, the competition was both the midwife and the baby of an emerging national construction market, a consolidating architectural scene, an emerging architectural style and a distinct character of the architect that has become associated with a Swiss identity.

Then we discuss the contemporary situation and state that, with regard to internationality, the competition tends to be viewed primordially in its role as a procurement instrument that is bound to WTO regulations.

University of Louvain Belgium Carlo Menon, Architect The Bartlett School of Architecture United Kingdom The way in which the majority of architectural competitions are conducted in Belgium is far from homogeneous, since each of the numerous public authorities is free to define its own procedures. In this paper we seek to better understand how architectural competitions are conducted in Belgium. Three case studies at different scales, each coming from one of the three Belgian regions — Brussels, Wallonia and Flanders — are studied.

Some considerations on the relationships between architectural competitions and the practice of architecture, emphasizing the representational context in which projects are carried out, will be discussed.

Or, the glazed ceiling of the interior courtyard at the Galeries Lafayettes in Berlin, designed by architect Jean Nouvel in The key mechanism in these theories is the perceived level of decommodification in society, i.

One concrete social measure is special accommodations for dependent and frail older people, here termed residential care homes RCH. Decommodification is supposedly most developed in welfare regimes originating from social democratic values, similar to Nordic countries, like Denmark, Norway and Sweden. During the 20th century, these countries have used architectural competitions in order to harmonize socio-political ideals with the architectural realization of RCHs.

The present study explores the organizational forms of 77 architectural competitions that were organized in these countries during the period A sub-sample of 9 competition programmes, three from each country, were analyzed concerning the presence of welfare goals and other prerequisites for the design task in the programming brief. The sample was assembled through key word searches in open and restricted databases.

Based on the full sample, restricted competitions appeared as the most used form for RCH competitions. The sub-sample suggested that language and ideological capital, originating from the realization of the Nordic welfare state, adds an additional restriction.
