‘Competitions offer terrible odds for a pretty lean return’


I sympathise but ever since architecture and design competitions became the best way to do really creative work with no risk (unless you won), to try things out without having to convince your client and in the knowledge that your best work may be stolen, this had been the dilemma. I don’t have an answer but as an urban design practice we saw it as a marketing and creative process that enabled us to look beyond the brief and get known. Also international competitions have been a valuable source of work for many practices.
