Suburbia transformed. One Garden at a Time

iscrizioni entro 9.04.10 | consegna entro 16.04.10

A competition for Built Residential Landscapes sponsored by The James Rose Center for landscape architectural research and design.

Through a juried competition, Suburbia Transformed, One Garden at a Time will assemble contemporary projects achieving this goal into an exhibition and catalogue. The emphasis is on how emerging sustainable strategies and tactics are used to create human landscape experiences that are beautiful, inspiring, perhaps profound; and which might serve as examples for transforming the suburban residential fabric, one garden at a time.

ELIGIBILITY Open to all, including landscape architects, landscape designers, architects, individuals, teams, or firms

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS Through this competition, we seek to explore solutions to the ubiquitous small-lot, detached single-family, residential condition in the hope that we may better understand how to transform suburbia. Therefore, only submissions on 2-acre or less residentially-zoned single-family properties will be considered. A submission with a newly built house is allowed as long as the lot was part of a pre-existing subdivision or town property. Distance from an urban center is not relevant for the purpose of this competition.
