Success Analysis in Architectural Design Competitions in Terms of Design Quality

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 788)


The article presents a report on research pertaining to the possibility of success in architectural design competitions. The research was carried out in 2016 and 1017 with the aid of Poznań University of Technology Faculty of Architecture students and under the guidance of the author. The significance of architectural design competitions in building spatial systems and improving the built environment was highlighted. The significance of architectural design competitions for the growth of architectural creative activities and in particular educating architecture students was also pointed out. As a result of the research, architectural design quality attributes were identified, which are decisive to the greatest extent when it comes to success in professional architectural design competitions.
