Call For Submissions: Inaugural TCLF – Cultural Landscape Award
The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) and World Landscape Architecture (WLA) announce the creation of the TCLF – Cultural Landscape Award, a new award category with WLA annual global landscape architecture awards program.
TCLF – Cultural Landscape Award recognizes the holistic planning, design, and stewardship efforts that reveal and assign value to a landscape’s palimpsest – embracing historic and cultural assets and systems in the same way that traditional practice addresses dynamic natural and ecological systems. These are planning efforts and built works that safeguard a landscape’s integrity and authenticity and, in the process of managing change, foster a deeper understanding and engagement of myriad voices.
Entries may range from those that address historical (and purposeful) erasure, the nature/culture dilemma; pro bono commitments for limited budgets; the challenge of rigid government standards; and, for public landscapes, innovative public engagement tools and strategies.
The WLA Awards, presented annually, honor excellence and innovation in the field of landscape architecture and showcase outstanding projects that demonstrate exceptional creativity, sustainability, and impact on the environment. The WLA awards highlight the diverse range of landscapes, from urban parks and public spaces to residential gardens and ecological restoration projects, fostering a sense of community and connection with nature.
