Architecture competitions are important because they allow architects of all levels to communicate and solve problems together. However, architecture competitions ask too much, give too little and promote formats that do not acknowledge the brevity, speed and riffability required for mass exposure/communication today.
The goal of Charrettes is simple: redirect our creative energy towards saying a lot with a little and being compensated for our ideas. The work done here should not only showcase your talents, but should inspire. We want to ask questions more than produce answers. We want to create imagery that we can easily repost on social media outlets to disseminate ideas outside of the architecture community.
