Competition: three "design dictionaries" by Deyan Sudjic to be won
Competition: Dezeen has partnered with publisher Particular Books to give away three copies of B is for Bauhaus – a "personal dictionary of design" by Deyan Sudjic, director of London's Design Museum.
Congratulations to the winners! Diego Ascencio Fuentes in Mexico, Monika Kubicsekova in Slovakia and Liz Price in the UK.
Covering subjects that range from authenticity to Grand Theft Auto, Jorn Utzon, Dieter Rams and Postmodernism, B is for Bauhaus is described as Deyan Sudjic's "essential tool kit for understanding the modern world".
The book offers a highly individual take on various elements of modern culture from Sudjic, who has been the director of London's Design Museum since 2006.
His career has included stints as a critic for the Observer and the Sunday Times, a period as editor of Domus, and curatorships in Glasgow, Istanbul and Copenhagen. He was one of the co-founder of Blueprint magazine in the 1980s and directed the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2002.
B is for Bauhaus draws on all of this experience to create an "a highly eclectic, intensely personal dictionary of design", said Particular Books.
Published this spring, the 480-page hardback book is "about what makes a Warhol a genuine fake; the creation of national identities; the mania to collect," said the publisher.
"It's also about the world seen from the rear-view mirror of Grand Theft Auto V; digital ornament and why we value imperfection. It's about drinking a bruisingly dry martini in Adolf Loo's American Bar in Vienna, and about Hitchcock's film sets," the publisher added.
This competition is now closed. Three winners will be selected at random and notified by email. Winners' names will be published in a future edition of our Dezeen Mail newsletter and at the top of this page. Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country.
