今年风景园林学生竞赛的主题是“Landscapes of Power: Design for Social Justice”
随着全球变暖、可持续发展实践，以及能源、食品、水、废弃物等问题的出现，当景观的干扰和变化超过了城市的范围，我们必须认识风景园林最为广泛的作用。这个时代的生活提供了一种机遇，可以让我们考虑不同的规模尺度、行业边界、多样的系统和复杂性，平衡分配社会价值与环境价值，为未来做充分的准备。正如此次大会——首次跨学科的设计峰会，设计是可预见的空间变化的核心，而“Landscapes of Power”涉及了空间复杂性与社会公平的问题，则居于本次峰会的前沿。
The IFLA Student Landscape Architecture Design Competition 2017 is now open! With a deadline for entries of 12 September 2017, an international jury will award 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed prizes during the 54th IFLA World Congress in Montreal, Canada.
THE THEME OF THIS YEAR’S LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE STUDENT COMPETITION IS “LANDSCAPES OF POWER: DESIGN FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE”.
With the advent of global warming, sustainable development practices and the energy/food/water/waste question, we must view landscape architecture in its broadest role, as landscape intervention and transformation going beyond the urban realm. Living in this time offers an opportunity to consider other scales, adjacencies, systems and complexities to prepare adequately for a future with a balanced distribution of social and environmental values. As this congress, the first interdisciplinary design summit, design is at the core of informed spatial change; and at the forefront of this summit lie landscapes of power, addressing questions of spatial complexities and social equity.
Dr. Beverly A. Sandalack, Chair of the IFLA Student Landscape Architecture Design Competition said: “The Competition has been an important part of the IFLA World Congress for some time. One of the roles of the competition is to promote and encourage the evolution of the profession of landscape architecture through education. Students have the opportunity to have their work reviewed alongside that of their peers from around the world. The discipline required to prepare a competition entry is a very useful exercise for students, and helps them prepare for some of the rigours of professional life.”
