Expert judges selected 35 projects for the competition for the German Landscape Architecture Award 2019.

The 35 nominated projects for the competition for the German Landscape Architecture Award 2019 have been determined. Five expert judges made their selection from 109 projects admitted to the competition in the virtual voting room between 11 February and 4 March 2019. The nominated works can be viewed at

This is the 14th competition since it was first held in 1993. The prize, which is awarded every two years, honours exemplary projects and their authors. The subject matter is socially and ecologically oriented settlement and landscape development as well as contemporary open space planning. The more intensive use of urban and rural areas is placing ever greater demands on the efficiency of the environment. Urban growth and the simultaneous emptying of rural regions, climate change, the energy transition and economic challenges are generating pressure to adapt and conflicts. Great efforts are currently being made to adapt existing infrastructures to the changed conditions, and entire systems are being rebuilt. The development and implementation of these new systems requires a fundamental rethink at all planning levels. Outstanding planning achievements, including conceptual ones, that demonstrate aesthetically sophisticated, innovative, ecological and participatory solutions for the aforementioned tasks will be honored.

On April 12, 2019, the eleven-member jury will convene at the German Architecture Center in Berlin, review the 35 nominated works and decide on the awarding of the First Prize and the awards in the categories Public Space as a Center, Neighborhood Development/ Living Environment, Use of Plants, Nature Conservation and Landscape Experience, Sport, Play, Movement, Landscape Architecture in Detail, Young Landscape Architecture and International Projects.

The awards will be presented at an evening ceremony on Friday, 20 September 2019 at the Allianz Forum in Berlin. On this occasion, the bdla will present the award-winning works in an exhibition and publish competition documentation.
