Competition: win a copy of Where Architects Sleep by Sarah Miller

For our latest competition we're offering readers the chance to win one of three copies of Where Architects Sleep, The Most Stylish Hotels in the World.

This competition has now closed. 

Curated and edited by Sarah Miller, founding editor-in-chief of Condé Nast Traveller UK, the book is "the ultimate, global accommodation list", bringing together the expert opinions of more than 250 of the world's most esteemed architects.

Between them, they have given more than 1,200 recommendations from better-known destinations to secret spots. We've teamed up with publisher Phaidon to give away three hardback copies of the book.

From luxury rooms to budget escapes, Where Architects Sleep showcases an extensive array of architects' favourite international places to stay for both work and leisure.

Desert, urban, countryside and island locations are all featured, including The Upper House in Hong Kong – a number one for Amanda Levete – and Villa Flor in Switzerland, chosen by Norman Foster.

"In the heart of an unspoiled village called S-Chanf, this is a simple but sophisticated guest house," says Foster about Villa Flor.

"Its corridors host exhibitions by artists, many of whom are frequent guests," he continues. "It is discreet and unpretentious without any signs to advertise its presence."

Insightful reviews, specially-commissioned maps and essential information are included to offer easy-to-navigate pages, which are organised by geographical area.

As well as suggesting destinations, the contributing architects also detail places they wish they had designed themselves.

More than 100 countries are covered in the book, with the most recommended hotel being 7132 Hotel in Vals, Switzerland – the hotel most architects wished they had designed.

Designed by Japanese architect Kengu Kuma, if the top-floor presidential suite of this hotel is booked then the visitor's helicopter and limousine transfer will also be included.
