Architecture Competitions and the Production of Culture Quality and Knowledge
This book comprises a series of 22 case studies by renowned experts and new scholars in the field of architecture competition research. In 2015, it constitutes the most comprehensive survey of the dynamics behind the definition, organization, judging, archiving and publishing of architectural, landscape and urban design competitions in the world. These richly documented contributions revolve around a few questions that can be summarized in a two-fold critical interrogation: How can design competitions - these historical democratic devices, both praised and dreaded by designers - be considered laboratories for the production of environmental design quality, and, ultimately, for the renewing of culture and knowledge? Includes 340 illustrations, bibliographical references and index of over 200 cited competitions. Keywords: Architecture / International competitions / Architectural judgment / Design thinking / Digital archiving (databases) / Architectural publications / Architectural experimentation / Landscape architecture / Urban studies

In this collection of papers from the conference, Canadian and international scholars examine little-studied or lesser-known aspects of Canadian culture, economics, politics, history and sociology, thus revealing the strengths and weaknesses of a society grappling with issues shared by many other contemporary societies. Decouvrir le Canada ? Mieux le decouvrir ! Tel etait l'objectif du 6e colloque biennal du Conseil international d'etudes canadiennes - Le Canada a decouvert -. En examinant certains elements peu connus ou peu traites dans les domaines de la culture, de l'economie, de la politique, de l'histoire et de la sociologie, des chercheurs canadiens et internationaux revelent les forces et les faiblesses d'une societe aux prises avec des problemes et des situations que partagent de nombreuses societes contemporaines. Ce volume rassemble et presente les fruits de leurs reflexions."
