Resumo (tradução – editoria de concursosdeprojeto.org)

O livro reúne 22 artigos, de especialistas renomados assim como novos pesquisadores, no campo de pesquisas sobre os concursos de arquitetura. Trata-se do mais amplo levantamento já realizado sobre as dinâmicas subjacentes à definição, organização, julgamento, arquivamento e publicação de concursos de arquitetura, paisagismo e urbanismo no mundo. As contribuições, fartamente documentadas, abordam uma série de questões que podem ser resumidas em uma grande inquietação: de que forma os concursos de projeto – instrumentos históricos e democráticos, ao mesmo tempo elogiados e temidos por arquitetos e planejadores – podem ser considerados como laboratórios sobre a qualidade da produção do ambiente construído e, em última análise, como instrumentos de renovação de cultura e conhecimento?
