This competition is sponsored by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) and directed by the Brazilian Society of Landscape Architects Organization Committee (ABAP): Lucia Costa, Maria Cecilia Barbieri Gorski, Raul Pereira and Saide Kahtouni, as the Local Competition Director)

The objective of the competition is to recognize superior environmental design achievements made by students in Landscape Architecture programs. The 2009 46th IFLA World Congress in Brazil aims to encourage achievement of the highest standards in landscape architecture education worldwide. The competition invites submissions from teams of students in Landscape Architecture programs or allied disciplines.

The theme that the competition entries must respond to is Green infrastructure: landscape, infrastructure and people for tomorrow.

This competition challenges students of landscape architecture to explore the IFLA World Congress theme of sustainability in landscape through new visions for the future. We invite participants to select a site that challenges the concept of sustainability and to develop designs which investigate, interrogate, challenge and propose sustainable options to the site conditions. The design proposals should also reveal something about the social, cultural, economic and/or political conditions related to the site''s context, and that convey them through technologies, approaches and esthetics.

Some examples of specific topics that might be explored through the submissions include:

- Brownfield recovery
- Urban water bodies
- Storm water management
- Alternative sewage treatment
- Climate change and landscape design
- Informal urban neighborhood improvements

Site and Scale
Participants are invited to select their own local site and to determine the scale of the project context.
