'Deadline Today!' is an exhibition by Wonderland — Plattform für Architektur that provides an extensive overview of the European architecture competition landscape, while also addressing the significance of competitions for the way architects work.

The study on the topic initiated by Wonderland is presented in the exhibition along with 99 individual accounts. The innovative and experimental approach that architecture offices take when submitting projects to competitions can be seen in a selection of architecture models.

A talk by the architects Róisín Heneghan and Shih-Fu Peng provides an introduction. In 2003 their office, which is based in Ireland, won the competition to build the Egyptian Museum in Cairo from among 1,557 entries.

A special issue of Wonderland Magazine is being published to accompany the exhibition.
