LILA is looking for offices practicing landscape architecture for it’s design approach to landscape. We seek experiment, innovation, design excellence and relevant solutions to the environmental and social issues.

Project category: jury award + popular choice award
This year we will explore progressive approaches to the design of urban spaces, regardless of its scale. We seek urban interventions that not only function well as social interfaces and environmental infrastructure but also emphasise the experience of the urban with all the local particularities. Each office can submit up to 2 entries in Project category.

Manufacturers of urban equipment can submit up to 3 realized products. We seek public benches, chairs and similar elements for sitting that can be easily implemented in a wide range of urban landscapes.
