Competition is key to the architectural profession. On a daily basis, practicing architects compete for the recognition of their ideas, new commissions, team approval, media attention, prizes and awards. This issue will study different modalities of architecture competitions, and the ways in which they collectivelyproduce knowledge. Architecture competitions are considered as a productive site of negotiation and exchange, or ‘contact zones’, an open arena for debate between different architecture cultures that produce moments of friction and wisdom. From this perspective, the study of architecture competitions is essentially a study of exchange.
