        • Description
        • The objective of the competition is to recognize superior environmental design achievements made by undergraduated students in Landscape Architecture university programs. The 2009 46th IFLA World Congress in Brazil aims to encourage achievement of the highest standards in landscape architecture education worldwide. The competition invites submissions from teams of undergraduated students in Landscape Architecture university programs or allied disciplines, in case the institution does not include a formal Landscape Architecture program, but another one close to it.

          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.

          Some examples of specific topics that might be explored through the submissions include:

          - brownfield recovery
          - urban water bodies
          - storm water management
          - alternative sewage treatment
          - climate change and landscape design
          - informal urban neighborhood improvements
