The Landscape Institute, Garden Museum and Mayor of London have just launched ‘A High Line for London: Green Infrastructure ideas competition for a new London landscape’. Inspired by New York’s High Line, and to be judged by a panel of experts including the founders of the High Line, entrants are being challenged to put forward innovative concepts that create imaginative new green space in the capital. The organizers are not seeking a replica of the High Line, but for proposals which similarly engage communities with green infrastructure. Green infrastructure is the network of open and green spaces, including features like green roofs, designed and managed to provide benefits such as flood management, urban cooling, green transport links and ecological connectivity – an approach which can have a huge and exciting impact on the way in which we live in the capital. Registration opens July 24, 2012 and submissions are due September 14,2012.

A shortlist, which will go on display at the Garden Museum during its High Line Symposium (5-8 October) and until mid-November, will be announced on the 24 September 2012. The deadline for submissions is Friday 14 September 2012.
