|Published in:||arq: Architectural Research Quarterly, March 2000, n. 1, v. 4|
The controversial book Design by Competition by Jack L. Nasar (1999) is a challenge to designers (it must qualify as controversial after the stinking review in arq 3/4). It's a tacky production - banal cover, messy text layout, photos taken without a perspective control lens - and it also claims to speak for the people in a crusade against ‘high architecture’. Clearly, neither form nor content is calculated to stimulate enthusiasm in the architectural community.
