The 2015 SLANT Open International Landscape Design Competition – themed “Testing The Water” – is now open for entry by designers around the world.
This is the 6th annual SLANT competition and you are invited to design a ‘virtual space’ which will have water as its central theme. The theme is open to your interpretation, so how you choose to design with water, and how much or how little water you chose to include is entirely up to you. You can place your imagined/virtual plot anywhere in the world and in so doing you are always designing in a geographical, topographical, climatic and cultural environment of your own choosing. You are also not limited in any way by budget, however designs must be ‘reasonably practical’, and should not be harmful to the environment.
There will be nine (9) merit awards and two (2) cash prizes on offer for the best designs. The total cash prize fund is 700 Euro.
In design, as in life in general, water has so many uses, and as such it has come to represent different things to different people. Water of course means life to us all, but on top of this it is has also come to be used in recreation, in science, in engineering, in religion, in cultural events, and for some it has become a vital political issue.
The 6th SLANT Landscape Design Competition is an open international competition and as such is open to all designers of all disciplines, and at all levels of experience. Students of all disciplines and at all levels of study are especially encouraged to enter, and a fee discount of 20% is available to students and recent graduates, subject to proof of status.
