Call for 2020 WLA award jurors

The call has gone out for jurors to participate in next year’s World Landscape Architecture Awards. People have until tomorrow Friday, 4 October 11:59 GMT (London time) to apply. 

Potential jurors should have a minimum of 10 years experience as a landscape architect, or be a professor at a university with a recognised landscape architecture programme. They would preferably belong to a professional organisation like the New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects. Previous experience on a design award jury is also a must.

“Into the Forest” by Openfabric won the 2019 WLA Award of Excellence in the Built, Small category. The installation confronts the phenomena of climate tropicalisation and its catastrophic effects on the environment, by recreating a portion of post-apocalyptic landscape (using leftovers trunks of paper production-chain). Climate change is real, action is urgent.

The awards are held to honour landscape architects around the world for their outstanding work, and to promote the profession. They endeavour to recognise innovative work - conceptual and built.

Any juror must commit to up to 15 hours of work, most of it spent on independent reviews and scoring in your own time. There will be three rounds of judging in March and April. Award winners will be decided by teleconferencing. The majority of work is independent reviewing and scoring in your own time.
