Check out Killing Architects' winning response
"Killing Architects' winning response talked about the profession shifting from a focus on building to a focus on the built environment and how the greatest challenges for young offices related not to the economic crisis, but on developing a body of ideas that would sustain their practice throughout its lifetime. These things are reflected in the practice's work, which includes not only architectural design and the development of urban strategies, but also a wider engagement in issues within the built environment, through research, exhibitions, films and events. Recent projects exploring the way that humanitarian agencies work in cities post-disaster, or looking at financial models for projects making use of temporarily vacant sites and buildings exemplify this approach."
