Architecture has become an increasingly multidisciplinary profession, where concepts, techniques, and materials are readily shared with other disciplines, and the many ways an architect can define and address a design problem has redefined the role of the architect. 'situating' implies a wide-ranging approach to all phases of design, creating a more dynamic understanding of site and open-ended work that both acknowledges existing conditions and allows for mutability and change over time. In Young Architects 7: Situating, young architects were asked to broaden the concept of 'siting' to include the 'situating' of an architectural problem.

The winners of the competition--Greg Kochanowski, ROEWU Architecture, Lateral Architecture, Dan Hisel Design, LinOldham Office, and Interboro--responded to these questions with answers as distinct as they are creative.
