The competition
This is now the 15th competition since it was first announced in 1993. The subject matter is socially and ecologically oriented settlement and landscape development as well as contemporary open space planning. With the more intensive use of urban and rural areas, ever higher demands are being placed on the efficiency of the environment. Urban growth and the simultaneous transformation of rural regions, climate change and the energy transition, economic challenges and - currently - the consequences of a pandemic are generating pressure to adapt and conflicts. With great effort, existing infrastructures are constantly being adapted to the changed conditions, and entire systems have to be rebuilt. For the development and realization of these new systems, a fundamental rethinking and strategic / visionary action is required at all planning levels. "Green Infrastructure" becomes a symbol for the importance of green, open space and landscape planning for the provision of public services, for multifunctional qualification and design of green spaces.

The award ceremony
The honouring takes place in the context of an evening ceremonial event on Friday, 8 October 2021, in Berlin. The bdla publishes the awarded and nominated works in a competition documentation.
