The Association of German Landscape Architects of North Rhine-Westphalia (bdla nw) has awarded the nrw.landscapearchitecture.prize 2020. From 14 entries, a jury chaired by Prof. Gert Aufmkolk unanimously awarded prizes to three works, while two other projects were commended by the jury. All the works illustrate how parks, gardens and open spaces create new and impressive landscape experiences and at the same time address future issues of the built environment.

Landscape architect Volker Püschel from Mettmann was awarded for the design of a house garden in Düsseldorf. The jury praised the planning and implementation of this ruin garden with "high aesthetic quality in materiality, detail and use of plants".
"With the design of Fritz-Kühn-Platz in Iserlohn, scape Landschaftsarchitekten GmbH provides an exemplary solution to the almost prototypical problem of designing a "green centre"," was the jury's verdict on the award for the landscape architects from Düsseldorf.
The third award went to the planning office DTP Landschaftsarchitekten GmbH from Essen, which designed the Westerholt recreational area in Herten: "With a high-quality and appealing design concept with unconventional details, barriers are torn down here and spaces and offers are created for the most diverse user and age groups," is how the jury explained its decision.

In addition, the jury awarded a commendation to the Duisburg office of Danielzik Leuchter + Partner Landschaftsarchitekten for their tree planting project in Bochum. The project demonstrates the importance of landscape architecture for climate protection and living conditions in the city: "Overall, the concept presented is an impressive look into the 'technology' of tomorrow's modern 'sponge' city."
The second recognition went to Landschaftsarchitektur + Holzapfel-Herziger & Benesch PartG mbB from Hamburg for the redesign of the market square in Bünde. "The design impresses with a high (urban) spatial quality; with the carefully placed rows of trees and avenues, an open, multifunctional square space fits into the urban layout. The materials are carefully chosen, robust and sustainable, and the quality of the implementation is high.

For the ninth time in total, bdla nw has awarded the nrw.landscapearchitecture.prize. The prize is intended to present the current fields of work and tasks of landscape design. It also highlights the creativity as well as the design and performance capabilities of landscape architects. Projects, planners and clients are honoured whose work is exemplary because it promotes high-quality, socially and ecologically oriented settlement and landscape development and contemporary, courageous and creative landscape architecture.

In cooperation with bdla nw, Baukultur Nordrhein-Westfalen is publishing a brochure on the nrw.landschaftsarchitektur.preis 2020, which presents all the participants in the competition and their projects. The printed brochure can be ordered free of charge from bdla nw and Baukultur Nordrhein-Westfalen. Baukultur Nordrhein-Westfalen is thus also continuing the work of M:AI - Museum für Architektur und Ingenieurkunst NRW, which previously conceived the associated presentation of the competition in the form of an exhibition. As a result of the Corona epidemic, the award ceremony in front of an audience had to be cancelled. Brochure as download!

The nrw.landscapearchitektur.preis 2020 is supported by Rinn Beton- und Naturstein GmbH & Co. KG and the Verband Garten-, Landschafts- und Sportplatzbau NRW.
