Architectural competitions open up a very interesting field of activity for our team.
For clients, architectural competitions are one of the most valuable tools in terms of quality and project orientation, as a way of finding the best solution for complex issues relating to specific projects. Precise requirements on side of the client are evaluated by different experts and transformed into individual concepts. This results in a variety of ideas that are independently assessed and evaluated based on various criteria.
An architectural competition serves as a playing field for us to continuously question and reflect on our own architectural work and our attitude to the discipline. In an open-ended and discursive design process, initial brainstorms are formulated into concrete spaces within the team. We see competitions as opportunities that allow a more free and experimental approach to design, thus breaking down conditioned patterns that inevitably creep in during everyday professional life. Through collaborative brainstorming and collective creation, a space of possibility for the new and often unknown emerges.
However, we never lose sight of the big picture and the given criteria, because it is this synergy that generates the quality of the planning.
We are driven by the constant will to work on new, challenging projects and see this as a great added value for us as a team. It is secondary whether our projects win the competition, because the mere participation gives a lot of new experience, which we need to grow personally and as a team.
