Shortlist for the 2022 WLA Professional Awards

2022 WLA Professional Awards

World Landscape Architecture received over 240 entries for the 2022 WLA Professional Awards from the greatest number of countries in the Awards history. The quality of the entries was high, with entries including art installations, sky parks, expo parks, wetlands, linear parks, pop-ups, masterplans, climate adaptation concepts, small gardens and industrial reuse.

The shortlist for the 2022 WLA Professional Awards was scored and reviewed by the jury. The final shortlist was determined by the total jury entry score and the number of entries per category (the shortlists are not all the same). The final round of scoring has occurred to maintain the anonymity of the entrants. The winners will be announced on 24 May, 2022.
