Slant Garden Design Award 2011

Slant is challenging you to design a garden for a private residence for the Slant Garden Design Award 2011. You may enter either as an individual, or in a group of two or three or four. You are free to choose the country in which you would like this imaginary house and garden to be located.

This is a worldwide competition open to all those who have an interest in garden design, from Landscape Architects and Garden Designers, to Architects and Designers of all varieties, from Artists to Horticulturalists and even including home owners with little or no previous experience.

This is a project of the imagination, for the imagination.

Objective

The challenge is to design a garden for a private residence. The house in question is not a real house, it has been designed specifically for this competition, and its location is not being specified.

It is a generic house and garden which could be almost anywhere in the world, and you are free to choose the country in which you would like this imaginary house and garden to be located.

With respect to the practicality, the jury will have special regard to the following, but not necessarily in this order of importance:

  • The relationship between house and garden
  • Circulation throughout the garden along with the organisation of space within the garden
  • The selection and use of plants and materials
  • Protection of the environment
  • Health and safety

More details can be found on the official website.

Prizes

There is one prize of €2,000! In addition to the cash prize the award winners will also receive a certificate signed by the judges, along with a critique of their design.

Award winners will have their projects prominently displayed on www.slant.eu.
