What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Architecture at its most basic form is a manipulation of the natural world into the built environment. The physical environment plays a key role in our mental and physical well-being, and it has a profound impact on how people interact with the world. Thus, the role of architecture surpasses simple space manipulation. Architecture, and design in general, defines our understanding of cultures, shapes how societies interact, and impacts the human experience. It can be a catalyst for change that can bridge differences and bring about innovation.

Designers have a responsibility to not only recognize this potential but understand their obligation to their communities: to influence society through thoughtful design and innovation and constantly improve on the built environment.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

We find great benefit in competition work. Each competition allows for some level of experimentation that invigorates our ongoing design conversations. The freedom from typical project constraints and the excitement around a new challenge create a design-school-studio-like atmosphere. We use it as a vehicle to challenge ourselves, try new processes and techniques, research construction typologies, and test software. We think of it as a development platform for design staff and a way to bolster our design culture.
