Additional info about the TOPOS Landscape Award:

"Since 2002, the award is to honour a landscape architecture practice that has made significant contributions to high-quality and up-to-date designs of cities and landscapes, has enriched the landscape architecture scene through its innovative ideas, and whose work has come to be representative of the best of contemporary landscape architecture. The Topos Landscape Award aims to highlight that the landscape architectural challenges of our time are characterized by a lively dynamic and display a wide range of facets.

The ceremony will be held as a special event of a conference on 'The Narrative of Landscape'. The symposium will focus on the significance of the ground for landscape; approaches to, and observations on, this subject will be interdisciplinary in character. Among the invited speakers will be Richard Sennett, Saskia Sassen, Adriaan Geuze, and David R. Montgomery."
