I would like to advertise a competition for young landscape architects aged 35 and younger to generate proposals for the theme: “Garden courtyards for groups of clients – new Hamburg terraces.”
On the occasion of the igs international garden show hamburg 2013 (igs 2013), the German society for garden architecture and landscape culture” (DGGL), in collaboration with the igs 2013, is pleased to announce a call for entries for the in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg, Germany.
Prize money: 2,000 € is available for the first prize, 1,000 € for the second prize and 500 € for the third prize.
The competition has been scheduled in such a way that it can be integrated as a project into the course of study:
Issue of documents: 15th October 2010
Submission deadline: 15th March 2011
Competition language is German.
The Ulrich-Wolf-Prize, which is awarded on an international level, aims to promote design proposals that demonstrate an innovative, pioneering approach to the design of garden courtyards for constructor’s consortiums.
The residential area ‘Neue Hamburger Terrassen’ (new Hamburg terraces) which is currently under development is a project with 100 residential units and part of the International Building Exhibition (IBA) Hamburg. The building development is directly adjacent to the new park of the igs 2013 and can therefore be directly accessed in several places. The project idea is based on the traditional ‘Hamburg Terraces’ – Wilhelminian-style courtyard buildings divided into small sections. The community atmosphere and the heterogeneous population mix contribute to the special charm of this form of living.
In accordance with the Ulrich-Wolf-Prize specifications, the participants are required to develop solutions that span a bridge between the different areas of design, ecological building, cultural diversity and community.
I very much would appreciate if you distribute the competion under your students. If you do have any questions don`t hesitate to contact me.
Best regards from Hamburg,
