SLANT: International Competition for Students of Landscape Architecture

The international competition for the SLANT AWARDS is being held this year for the first time and on this occasion is aimed exclusively at students of Landscape Architecture and Landscape Design.
The central idea behind this challenge is that the project in question is a “virtual project”, one  that has been created specifically for this competition.  What you are being invited to do is to create a concept design for a public park, one which will not  only serve the needs of the citizens of this city, but which will also aim to achieve iconic status and in so doing will enhance the international reputation of the city.

You will see from the brief that we are looking here at urban renewal, with the project being set on a vacant site in a riverside location.  This competition has been designed to offer students an interesting challenge with what we believe are interesting rewards, and we have tried to keep it as simple as possible.
You can enter as often as you like, either as an individual, or as a team of 2 or 3, and an entry fee will be charged accordingly.

Registration Deadline: 22 April
Deadline for submissions: 10 June 2011

First Prize          Euro 3,000
Second Prize      Euro 1,500
Third Prize         Euro 750

Jury Members:
John Brookes (UK),
Ulf Nordfjell (Sweden)
Paolo L. Bürgi (Switzerland)

Urban SOS – AECOM student ideas competition

AECOM has launched for its second year, an open student ideas competition for 2010 – Urban SOS.

The competition seeks to engage students in the design, planning, architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, engineering, environmental and related fields, with the urban conditions that are now facing the majority of the world’s population.

This year, AECOM are exploring the topic of ‘Transformations,’ looking at seven cities in particular that are in the midst of a change or collection of changes that represent both challenges and opportunities to the shared futures of each city. Entrants must submit a site redevelopment plan that addresses specific issues in one of the following seven cities:

  • Beijing, China
  • Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
  • Johannesburg, South Africa
  • Istanbul, Turkey
  • Phoenix, USA
  • Port au Prince, Haïti
  • São Paulo, Brazil

The top four finalist/teams will travel to Barcelona to attend the World Architecture Festival from 3-5 November, 2010, with $20,000 in prize money at stake.
