The book is not structured sequentially, but rather as a compilation of ideas presented graphically. It becomes a source of reference and catalyst to further research of the selected firms and discovery of what drives their work. The book posits a number of questions about architectural design itself: What makes an excellent architectural idea? How might one put forth such ideas? How might these ideas be further translated into other realms? What makes a successful architectural design competition entry? The architecture firms whose work is presented here must be recognized for their contributions to the book, but also, and more importantly, for their thoughts on the nature of architecture as seen through design competitions and what that means for the future of the discipline and profession of architecture.
