Atelier Altern created an installation in the French city of Amiens where the first edition of « Imaginez maintenant » was taking place.
« Imaginez Maintenant » is a national event in support of youth creation, including performances, fashion, architecture and poetry, as well as an experimentation field for young landscapers to share, over the summer, a contextual and sensitive vision on emblematic French heritage sites. In order to represent the profession of landscape architect among the national sphere of creation, the city of Amiens through the center of art programmes of Amiens (Maison de la Culture d’Amiens) has given the possibility to transform emblematic French heritages sites of the town : the islands of the Hortillonnages, a curious site of floating gardens.
When Burbank Water and Power built an award-winning electric power plant in 2005, it also replaced several existing substations located on the campus. In restoring the old substation sites, BWP saw an opportunity to achieve something greater. Los Angeles based landscape architecture firm AHBE Landscape Architects was commissioned to create an ambitious master plan for an EcoCampus that focused on transforming the grounds from an aging industrial site into a regenerative green space.
European Federation of Landscape Architects (EFLA) has launched the Student & Young Professionals Competition which aims to help up and coming designers to get exposure for their projects and work. Any landscape architect (a student or a professional under the age of 35) can submit their entries. The competition and the catalogue is divided into 3 categories: Sites, Ideas and Projects.
