This one definitely expanded on the concept well, and got well away from the
straight buildings that seemed to predominate.

I found the scoring in this round quite interesting in the number of entries
with wide extremes between artistic, technical & concept.  In every round
there are a few with one category standing out from the other two, but this
round there seemed to be a lot, both high and low.
Usually the wider spreads fall toward the lower end of the overall scoring,
but in this round 7 of the top 20 have a spread over 1 1/2 points, and 2,
including the winner, have a spread over 2 points.
