Categories:

Category 1 : ANALYSIS AND PLANNING

Rapid urbanisation, unprecedented climate changes, fast-changing social scenarios, evolving human-nature relations, and other parameters are guiding how landscape architects have a changed perspective towards analysing the site context. Under this competition category, students can submit analysis and planning work related to the competition theme. This award will distinguish works that stand out in their innovative methods and depth of analysing a problem statement.

Category 2 : LANDSCAPE DESIGN

Under this category, students can submit their individual/teamwork for site-specific Landscape Architecture projects and address relevant questions in the Landscape field. This category emphasizes design formulation techniques, narratives, methodologies, and detailed studies of the associated subject matter for better-curated experiences and taking relevant sensitive approaches.

Category 3 : APPLIED RESEARCH

The landscape architecture profession is constantly evolving and challenging how we design and investigate any landscape issue. Landscape design can both inform or be informed (pre-occupancy research) by research. Research topics can range from life sciences, ecology, sociology, human behaviour, socio-psychology, etc. There is a great scope for applying proven research theories into scientific-based and/or evidence-based designs. Under this competition category, students can submit scientific-based and/or evidence-based design projects related to the competition theme. This award will distinguish works that translate recognized research from the landscape architecture field into creative design solutions.

 

Eligibility:

The competition is open to all diploma, undergraduate, and graduate students of Landscape Architecture. Both individual and group submissions will be accepted, and for each student or group, only one entry is permitted.
