Slant Awards Summer 2011 Competition

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.

The Slant Awards 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.

Objective

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.
