Thanks to social media, more people than ever now consume architecture every day through their feeds. However, their attention is fleeting – with millions of architectural ideas flowing across the web, each designer has just a brief moment to make an impact. This means one image or drawing needs to possess the power to tell a whole story on its own, in seconds. For any designer, producing a viral drawing might just kickstart their career. But what exactly makes an architectural drawing special? Architizer’s global architectural ideas competition poses a simple question: Can you create a single drawing that tells a powerful story about architecture? Create one drawing that powerfully communicates your architectural proposal and the experience of those that would inhabit it. It can be located anywhere in the world and be at any scale. It can take the form of a plan, section, elevation, perspective or sketch.
