1 – What is your office’s experience with architecture competitions? Is it something that you do on a regular basis? What are your motivations?
StudioArch4 has participated in various competitions, mostly right after the studio was founded (in both architecture and architecture ideas competitions). We believe that some of our competition submissions are our most representative work.
2 – And about architecture ideas competitions, where most of the times, it’s not about getting a commission for a something to be built?
It is a good opportunity to work on concepts and content of a given project as well as elaborate architectural ideas without being limited by the implementation implications.
3-Do you think that is a challenge for architecture students or recent graduates only?
We highly encourage both students and young professionals to participate in competitions regardless of the commission.
