Nová studentská soutěže ve Švýcarsku - STUDENT DESIGN COMPETITION

Téma: Urban bounderies

Dealing with land as a resource in a sustainable way is a globally recognized goal. However, towns and villages continue to expand as long as there is sufficient space. The pressure on the landscape is growing. All too often it is still regarded as potential development land. In conjunction with these trends, the urban boundary is becoming critically important – it is the link to the open landscape that allows humans to meet their fundamental need to experience nature.
Definition and analysis of the problems of the chosen area should be made.
Land uses at the urban boundary and in the adjacent undeveloped land should be described and potential conflicts addressed and resolved.
The proposals should be outlined at conceptual level (scale from 1:10’000 to 1:5’000) and refined at a scale from 1: 2’000 to 1:500.
The conceptual statements on the urban boundary should address the following aspects (although the projects are not limited only to these):
  • Function
  • Use
  • Accessibility to the area
  • Mobility through the area
  • Access within the area
  • View from the area
  • View into the area
Detailed concepts will indicate design resolution of the issues, and may include such aspects as facilities, choice of materials and ambiance.
The Competition is open to all students of Landscape Architecture, or allied discipline (where a country or university does not include a formal Landscape Architecture program). Both individual and group submissions will be accepted, and each student or group is permitted only one entry.
Broad interdisciplinary submissions are welcome; however, the project must be about landscape architecture.
The number of members in each participating group shall not exceed five (5).
Professional collaborators and associates of the members of the jury and their relatives may not enter the competition.
