The February/March 2016 issue of international design magazine Mark features an interview with Malcolm Reading on the value of design competitions. Mark has a radically international perspective, shining its spotlight on new talent and ‘starchitects’ alike, exploring the boundaries of architecture and anticipating the industry’s future.
In a wide-ranging conversation with Giovanna Dunmall, Malcolm explores many aspects of competitions from both the client’s and architect’s perspective. What are the relative merits of open and two-stage competitions? How do competitions encourage innovation and meritocracy? What makes a good jury? How do promising architects find their way onto invited lists?
