In collaboration with Landezine
For the first time Streetlife has joined forces with Landezine, and is organizing a design competition for young landscape architects and landscape students. For this competition an internationally renowned jury will announce 6 recognitions with a total of €15,000 in prize money.
The theme of this competition is ‘Lost Sites’. The competition is looking for small troubled open spaces and design solutions that are site specific but universal at the same time. In times of social and environmental distress, the world is increasingly more aware of the significance of open space and the issues of urbanization. Qualities of urban sites are lost due to various social changes, rising parking needs, inappropriate design, neglect, and, unfortunately still – war. The competition is looking for multidisciplinary solutions to spatial issues concerning urbanization. The chosen site needs to be a publicly accessible open space in European or North American territories.
Registration applies to multidisciplinary teams of minimal 2 people, with 1 landscape architect/ student and 1 designer of another relevant discipline (architect, industrial designer, visual artist, sociologist, ecologist etc.). With this competition Streetlife not only strives to emphasize the importance of landscape architecture, but also the versatile position of the landscape designer in cooperation with other disciplines.
Teams can comprise students, young professionals or both. No team member must be older than 35 on 15 December 2022. All teams that wish to take part in the Streetlife Design Competition must register before 9 December 2022. The final deadline for submissions is 15 December 2022.
The jury consists of renowned landscape architects and designers: Julie Bargmann (founder of D.I.R.T.), Eric Manfrino (Co-founder LAND’ACT), Jenny Osuldsen (Director Snøhetta), Antje Stokman (professor at HafenCity University), Zas Brezar (Founder Landezine) and Peter Krouwel (Director Streetlife).
The winning project will be an innovative and strong conceptual work that successfully deal with several spatial issues where the conditions allow: memory of the site / genius loci / sustainability / user-centred design / urban biodiversity / climate resiliency / inclusive social space / empowerment of communities / sustainable mobility …
