2010 Student Landscape Architecture

Design Competition Brief

2010 Student Landscape Architecture

Design Competition Winners


The theme of the Congress is “Harmony and Prosperity – Traditional Inheritance and Sustainable Development.” The Congress will focus on cherishing and protecting traditional natural and cultural values. It will try to balance tradition and development in today’s society in the broader context of rapid globalization and urbanization. Suzhou is an excellent example of achieving this balance – an old city in which historic sites, traditional gardens and successful modern landscape development are mingled together.

Entries must specifically address the preservation, restoration or rehabilitation of urban historic sites in the countries in which students live and/or study, and demonstrate a creative approach and thinking in their projects, so that the value and spirit of the place are cherished and preserved, while satisfying the needs of modern society, such as accessibility, sustainability, etc.
