IFLA Student Design Competition

Ages:Undergraduate, Graduate

Types:Submission, Presentation

Categories:Architecture, Design

Scope:International

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

The IFLA Student Landscape Architecture Design Competition promotes and encourages the evolution of the profession of landscape architecture through education. Students have the opportunity to have their work reviewed alongside that of their peers from around the world. The discipline required to prepare a competition entry is a very useful exercise for students, and helps them prepare for some of the rigors of professional life.

Through the generous sponsorship of UNESCO from 1988/9 through 2005, and since 2006 by the Group Han, the top prize is $3500 US. The second prize ($2500 US) has been offered by IFLA in the name of Zvi MIller, President Emeritus of IFLA, and the third prize ($1000 US) has been offered by the local organizing IFLA component. In 2014, an additional prize was donated by Bruns Nurseries in Germany for a special award for sustainability ($1300 US).

Students are asked to respond to a specific topic, which has usually related to the overall Congress theme. This allows the students to address local issues, and to fit into the general expectations of the studio class or thesis requirements of their university.

In every competition, the most successful projects have been those in which the students have clearly understood their context, and have employed both a rigorous analytical method, as well as strong design principles and execution. Ecological crises, the shocking destruction of heritage landscapes, social inequities, and the overall relationship between people and their environment are issues that have dominated the submissions. There is typically a range of projects from practical and site-specific, to conceptual and experimental, and the submissions represent the broad spectrum of the profession of landscape architecture, with urban and rural subjects, and a wide range of scales. The graphic communication of the projects, not surprisingly, has rapidly evolved over the years, and indicates that university programs continue to lead in this area. Interestingly, many of the project still demonstrate that students are continuing to develop their hand graphics as well.

Submissions are judged by a jury online first with finalists reviewed in person at the IFLA World Congress.

Students are asked to respond to a specific topic, which has usually related to the overall Congress theme. This allows the students to address local issues, and to fit into the general expectations of the studio class or thesis requirements of their university.

In every competition, the most successful projects have been those in which the students have clearly understood their context, and have employed both a rigorous analytical method, as well as strong design principles and execution. Ecological crises, the shocking destruction of heritage landscapes, social inequities, and the overall relationship between people and their environment are issues that have dominated the submissions.
