The 51st IFLA World Congress 2014 International Student Competition, to be celebrated in the City of Buenos Aires, Argentina, is sponsored by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) and organized by the Argentine Center of Landscape Architects (CAAP).

The competition aim is to promote a reflection on the importance of “thinking and action on landscape” as a conceptual and operative tool to guide the deep and global transformations in their changes. The intention is to reconnect places to the geographic, social and cultural context that contains them, and to recover the essence of their identity and values. It is intended that students investigate the dynamic process of landscapes in their different complexities (ethical, aesthetic, functional, ecological, socio- cultural, historic-patrimonial, economic-productive, etc.) redefining and identifying new and old spaces, applying innovative and sustainable technologies, generating formal and environmental certainties; and humanizing the places and their landscape.


Creating a landscape of places The competition challenges students to explore urban landscapes: abandoned, obsolete and degraded landscapes; landscapes hurt by aggressive anthropic actions to nature and to the culture of the territory, landscapes substituted by new proposals and originated by needs, which may not have always kept the environmental balance. They should propose new ideas sustained by “reflective thought” that will try to solve the unsustainable problems of urban landscapes in emergency; and the “action” using the most appropriate techniques to improve the management and building of a landscape of places and of new spaces of urban sustainability.
