- Anzeige Text im Grid: Nein
For the tenth time now, the regional group of the bdla nw, together with the respective management company of the North Rhine-Westphalian state garden shows, is holding a nationwide competition for students, graduates and young landscape architects. Rarely has there been such a great opportunity for young landscape architects to present their work to a broad public.
The competition task this time is the design of a garden "GREEN-MIX-Garden" at the Landesgartenschau Höxter 2023, which should focus on the use and combination of plants. As usual in the procedure, this is again a realisation competition, the result of which is to be implemented together with the Landesgartenschau Höxter 2023 gGmbH after the competition has been completed. In addition to the chance of realization of one of the submitted proposals, prizes and recognitions in the total amount of 5,000 euros are available to the participants. This year's competition is being supervised by Martin Gasse, landscape architect bdla, Paderborn.
The competition is open to landscape architects (recommended age max. 35 years) and students and graduates of landscape architecture or garden and landscape architecture/landscape planning at German universities, as well as foreign participants if they are studying in Germany.
On April 10, 2019, the jury met under the chairmanship of Ina Bimberg, former chair of the North Rhine-Westphalia regional group and landscape architect from Iserlohn, to sift through and evaluate the projects submitted for the 9th bdla nw young talent competition. Three prizes and two commendations were unanimously awarded. The first prize for the design "THE HEAT" went to the Hamburg team Jenny Ohlenschlager (Hamburg, graduate of the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences) and Lisa Brunnert (graduate of the University of Kassel).
The second prize for the design "Mut zur Wildnis" went to Valentin Bauer, Adrian Lichnowski, Theresa Noeke from Studio BLN Landschaften in Hanover.
The Berlin team Lukas Hövelmann and Matthias Maurerlechner (graduates of the Technical University Berlin) won the third prize with their idea of a cool and humid arbor on a dry open space.
One prize each went to the team Sophia Krause Pascal Zibler (both from Berlin) and to Florian Eisenlohr from Heidenrot.
The prizes are endowed as follows: 1st prize 1,800 euros, 2nd prize 1,400 euros, 3rd prize 1,200 euros. 300 euros will be paid out for each of the prizes.
The competition task this time was the design of a "climate garden" at the State Garden Show Kamp-Lintfort 2020 in NRW. This is once again a realisation competition, the results of which will be implemented together with Landesgartenschau Kamp-Lintfort 2020 GmbH once the competition has been completed. Prize money totalling 5,000 euros is also available for prizes and recognition. This year's competition was supervised by Christian Jürgensmann, landscape architect bdla, Duisburg, 2nd chairman and specialist spokesman for competition and awarding of the regional group.
For "new generation landscape architects" there is rarely such a great opportunity to present their work to a broad public. The winning garden is to be realised in the area of the home gardens of the NRW Garden, Landscape and Sports Ground Construction Association to the north of the central neighbourhood square in the newly developing colliery park on a former mine site. This is a temporary garden which will be dismantled after the end of the State Garden Show, as residential use is planned for these areas.

It is again a realization competition, the result of which is to be implemented together with the Landesgartenschau Bad Lippspringe 2017 GmbH. The awarding authority is the Association of German Landscape Architects, regional group North Rhine-Westphalia (bdla nw). The first prize went to Katrin Heilen from Kleve (studying in Höxter) for the forest garden "Die blaue Lichtung". The prize money amounts to 1,800 euros.
