Dear Delegates and Presidents of National Associations,
dear members and partners of IFLA Europe,
It is our honour and pleasure to invite you to the 11th edition of International Biennial of Landscape Architecture of Barcelona , which will include a series of eight lectures related with this year’s motto “Climate Change, again: City and Nature”, the presentation, realized by the authors themselves, of the 11 finalist projects which aspire to win the Rosa Barba International Landscape Prize and finally eight conferences conducted by the eight Universities which take part in the Schools Landscape International Prize.
I am sharing wit you the message sent by the Executive Committee of the 11th International Biennial of Landscape Architecture of Barcelona:
"The symposium has been adapted to this year’s circumstances the result of which has transformed it into an open and participative event, conducted from Barcelona as it has always been. We would have liked to physically invite you to our city, to the Petit Palau as always done before, to gather up, loyal to the commitment towards the biennial over the years. Nonetheless we share the concerns regarding health safety during this pandemic period. Therefore, we propose to transform our challenges into a new adventure to expand the scope of the Barcelona Landscape Biennial and thus contribute to increase the visibility of the profile of the profession and education of landscape architecture.
To attend the event, you must fill in the online register form before September the 20th, 2021.
The symposium will last five days and will gather 43 lecturers, live, during 30 hours, organized by COAC and UPC Barcelona Tech, in cooperation with many other local and international organizations. We encourage you to visit the International Biennial of Landscape Architecture of Barcelona website for further information.
We want to draw your attention to the fact that there are no registration fees and that online registration is the only requirement. All registered will be granted voting right for the Public Opinion Prize to be awarded to the most voted Rosa Barba and International School finalist.
We also aim to create a network of Biennial friendly spaces (Landscape Architecture universities, schools, professionals’ studios, institutions, NGO’s, magazines, enterprises) where our professionals and students can gather to follow the symposium and award ceremony. We miss the human touch of gathering and meeting in Barcelona, and this will be our alternative to network differently. If your studio/university/institution wants to be part of this international network and connect with us “live” during the final event and award ceremony, join the “pop up green” network. Please write an email to any of the addresses below with the subject: POP UP GREEN
