2019 Hong Kong Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture 2019 香港城市\建築雙年展
Conversation #8 | De-Mystifying Competitions
A successful design competition means much more than just selecting a designer for a project. Starting from the beginning of the process, a well-defined brief can do much more than communicating the physical requirements of the project to the competitors, it can also help to refine the organisation’s vision. An effective and integrated submission, judging, selection and feedback process can not only identify new talents but also help these talents grow regardless of the results. Further, by extending the competition process beyond selecting the winner, advice and reviews by the judging panel at strategic points of the development and procurement stages can ensure the spirit of the project conceived at the beginning is delivered. The speakers and panelists will provide perspectives of how Hong Kong and other world cities can address the issue of design excellence where commercial and public factors align, and where qualitative aspirations and quantitative requirements matter equally.
