So, the Yearbook is not just a great source of inspiration to help architects to create compelling competition-winning drawings, but also a useful educational tool for all architects and designers.

The Architecture Competitions Yearbook is an innovative publication that responds to the everlasting competition culture inside the architecture realm. It prepares anyone looking to participate in a competition in the best way possible; by giving an inside look into the minds of the architects who won past competitions and answering what we all want to know. How did you come up with that? What software did you use? How long were you working on the project? These answers are gold when you understand how important this kind of insight is to a person going into a competition. Overall it is a book worth having.
I love the idea of this book. Basically this whole book is filled with projects that have won various international competitions. It’s of course a visual treat to go through because each of the projects have some fantastic illustrations and concepts. But what I really love about this book is the section “How we won that competition”. After each project there is a dedicated section which explains why this particular entry was able to beat all others. And honestly, this was the kind of guide I used to look for when I was studying.
