Architecture competitions have been used throughout history to source the best ideas for some of our most iconic landmarks. The Sydney Opera House, the Centre Georges Pompidou and the UK Houses of Parliament were all architecture competition submissions. 

For this annual essay competition, Buildner is asking participants to detail their views on the topic – why enter architecture competitions. We’re looking for insightful essays that reflect on how architecture competitions can help architects and designers grow their skills, as well as giving a unique perspective on how their own personal experience with architecture competitions has impacted their lives and their careers.

The “Why Enter Architecture Competitions” essay competition is open until February 2, 2023, with winners to be announced on April 12, 2023. Visit for more information.
