Why Architectural Competitions?

For the past decades, the architecture profession has been gradually moving toward attaining work through private or open call architectural competitions rather than the traditional direct clientele selection process. Architectural City provides a catalog of architectural competitions in a searchable, visual map format. Very accessible for any architectural student, architect, or design enthusiast researching a specific project or visiting the area.

(1) Architecture Competition entries from 2000-2016
(2) Architecture Competition entries from 1970-2000
(3) Architecture Competition archives collection.
(4) A user-generated directory system
