ARCHITECTURE COMPETITION: PROJECT DESIGN AND THE BUILDING PROCESS. Ignaz Strebel and Jan Silberberger. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2017. Design and the Built Environment. 192 pp. with 18 ills. 25 x 18 cm. LC 2016-34546 ISBN 9781472469984 In English.
Publisher's description: Much valued by design professionals, controversially discussed in the media, regularly misunderstood by the public and systematically regulated by public procurement; in recent years, architecture competitions have become projection screens for various and often incommensurable desires and hopes. Almost all texts on architectural competition engage it for particular reasons, whether these be for celebration of the procedure, or dismissal. Moving on from such polarised views, Architecture Competition is a revelatory study on what really happens when competitions take place. But the story is not just about architecture and design; it is about the whole construction process, from the definition of the spatial programme, to judgement and selection of projects and the realization of the building. This book explores the competition in the building process as it takes place, but also before and after its execution. It demonstrates that competitions are not just one step of many to be taken, but that competitive design procedures shape the entire process.
