The theme that the competition entries must respond to is: Green infrastructure: landscape, infrastructure and people for tomorrow.
This competition challenges students of landscape architecture to explore the IFLA World Congress theme of sustainability in landscape through new
visions for the future.
We invite participants to select a site that challenges the concept of sustainability and to develop designs which investigate, interrogate, challenge and
propose sustainable options to the site conditions. The design proposals should also reveal something about the social, cultural, economic and/or political
conditions related to the site’s context, and that convey them through technologies, approaches and aesthetics.
