What is going wrong with architectural competitions?


Thanks for your comment Francis. I disagree with this because as well as the longlist and shortlist receiving considerable publicity from the AJ and the Crown Estate and the final six receive honorariums, there is the chance of real work at the end of this. The Crown Estate is a large client with considerable resources which is sincere in its desire to find new architectural ideas and talent. Our last competition with the Crown Estate produced real projects in the West End for some of the shortlist. Will Hurst, AJ managing editor
