Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

Architecture competitions are an opportunity to test and explore ideas that would otherwise likely remain in a drawer, never to be formed into something potentially useful. This way, competitions invite innovation.

Participating in design competition is a way to make your voice heard, as well as to give yourself precious exposure to professional networks and a pool of opportunities.
