3 Reasons To Enter Architecture Competitions

by | Aug 10, 2021 | Construction & Contractors

Students in architectural programs and even architects with limited experience often find it difficult to move from the structured approach of training used in most programs to the challenges of real-world work.

Entering architecture competitions offers a remedy for this issue. These competitions spark creativity and motivate new and experienced professionals to try something out of their comfort zone.

Overcoming the Day-to-Day

Even experienced architects can find they become known for a specific type of design. This can restrict their ability to be creative and to take on new kinds of projects. Sometimes, trying to develop a new look for the same type of structure and project becomes almost impossible, leading to difficulties in finding new ideas or in experimenting with new concepts.

A great way for students or working architects to keep engaging their creativity is to participate in architecture competitions. There are different levels and types of competitions, allowing the student or professional to challenge themselves and to have the opportunity to experiment and create outside of their typical project.

Gain Recognition

Entering architecture competitions allows you to get your name out there as an active professional. This benefit is not just for the winner, but it is for everyone competing in the event. Of course, winning the competition is an exceptional addition to your resume and portfolio.

Increase Confidence

It takes confidence and courage to enter any type of competition. Getting out of your comfort zone and trying new things in a professional role helps you to have the self-confidence to take on new and creative projects.
