The Competition

The competition is a documentary by OSS (Office for Strategic Spaces) about five ‘starchitects’ designing a national museum for Andorra in 2009. The documentary is a raw account of how five of the worlds best architects toil and struggle to beat the competition.  Jean Nouvel, Frank Gehry, Dominique Perrault, Zaha Hadid and Norman Foster are selected to participate in the design of the future National Museum of Art of Andorra, a first in the Pyrenees small country. Norman Foster drops out of the competition after a change in the rules that allow the documentary to happen.
