International award recognizing exemplary design of private open spaces
The international competition best private plots 07 – Die besten Gärten 2007 is being held for the second consecutive year. The award honours achievements in the design of private outdoor space and gardens.
The jury’s criteria encompass: design concept, artistic quality, use of plants and materials, linkage of indoors and outdoors, spatial definition and structuring, technical implementation, and ecological interrelationships. Emphasis will also be placed on the garden’s potential to accommodate a variety of uses.
The outdoor space or garden must clearly be a private habitat, and have been completed after January 1, 1997.
Awards are in recognition of newly designed gardens or for redesign of existing gardens. This is an open competition. Landscape architects, architects, designers, artists, florists, nurseries and landscaping firms, garden owners—as well as teams consisting of a combination thereof—are eligible.
