Call for Entries – IFLA AAPME Awards 2018

IFLA AAPME Awards 2018 – Resilience by Design is an inaugural award initiated by the IFLA Africa, Asia Pacific and Middle East (AAPME) regions. Organised by the IFLA Asia Pacific region and Co-Chaired by the three IFLA regional presidents, it is an international award for landscape design and planning recognition that is open to all IFLA regions and practitioners around the world for projects within the Africa, Asia Pacific and Middle East regions. The Award offers unlimited submissions and free registration to all.

It is the first ever cross-regional collaborative platform created to showcase single and multidisciplinary projects grounded in the landscape, with the intention of building resilience in our urban and natural systems. The Award is also a call for examples of climate change adaptation, responsible practice and the pursuit of joint efforts to address issues of resilience building, illustrated with actual case studies.

Resilience is a goal. Building resilience is a continual process. There are many different areas of focus and challenge within resilience which are reflected in the award categories. Some of these categories also aim to focus on the intricate facets and outcomes that landscape architects have to support, protect and strengthen during the process of building resilience in our cities and our environments.

HOW TO ENTER

All projects MUST be based in Africa, or the Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions as defined by IFLA’s organisational structure.

Announcement of IFLA APR Election Result 2017

Following the election for the role of President of the IFLA APR held between 30th Aug – 30th Sept 2017, the chart below shows that the incumbent, Damian Tang, has been re-elected for a further two year term.

As a result, Mr Damian Tang was elected as the IFLA APR President for the 2017 – 2019 term.

 

As there is no other contestant for the Honorary Secretary position, an election is not required and thus Associate Professor Mike Barthelmeh will hold this appointment from 2017 to 2019.

On behalf of IFLA APR, we would like to thank all our members, industry partners, sponsors and fellow  professionals for their support and contributions in our achievements. We look forward to your continual support for IFLA APR as the new council embarks on an exciting journey ahead.

IFLA World Congress 2018

Organised by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) and Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects (SILA), the 55th IFLA World Congress will be held in Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore on 18 – 21 July 2018.

Held in conjunction with Singapore Garden Festival 2018 which will take place on 21 – 29 July 2018, National Parks Board is the Organising Partner of IFLA World Congress 2018.

IFLA 2018 will be held in Singapore, the ‘City in a Garden’, which is also recognised as a Biophilic City. This vision reinforces the importance of landscape architecture, in partnership with other disciplines, in the continuous shaping of our living environment.

IFLA 2018 will bring the industry together to reflect on the interaction between urban and natural environments. The Congress will host a privileged field for conversation in the context of greening strategies within rapidly growing cities, application of potential technologies to provide insight into design processes and capacities to adapt to changing environmental conditions. IFLA 2018 will also continue to investigate emerging questions in the practice of landscape architecture with communities, architecture and engineering through the themes of Biophilic City, Smart Nation and Future Resilience.
