First Prize

Mann Landschaftsarchitektur – Deutschland

Mann Landschaftsarchitektur – Germany

Garden Labyrinth – Erfurt

Statement of the jury:
The garden functions both as an image and as a physical, spatial experience. It offers great variety with the minimum of means, through a constant fluctuation of volumes and spaces. It extracts a maximum from a difficult sloping space and incorporates important elements from its previous life. It is a very seductive and inviting interpretation of the archetypal idea of the labyrinth. Although it is a private space, it also gains much from being overlooked by the surrounding houses for which this becomes a territoryof imaginative wandering.


Second Prize

Ewa Wagnerová – Tschechische Republik

Ewa Wagnerová – Czech Republic

Trnka Garden – Brno

Statement of the jury:
The project shows a clear spatial organization and carefully integrates the old and the new. It is a harmonious garden that seems exceptional and ordinary at the same time. It works well through the seasons, and the reflecting pond and long planks of paving form a poetic composition at the heart of the garden.

Third Prize

Christine Rottenbacher – Österreich

Christine Rottenbacher – Austria

Angerdorf Unterretzbach

Statement of the jury:
The “Allmende”(village common) has been reintroduced to the local people for their enjoyment and to involve them in a common social responsibility for the neighborhood. The idea of the garden is the process of changing people’s everyday life so that garden work becomes part of life and enriches health and pleasure. Beauty on its own is not enough.

Honorable mention

1:1 Landskab – Dänemark


doxiadis+ – Greece

Landscapes of Cohabitation

Statement of the jury:
It is a brave decision to work in healing a landscape, keeping the line of time in the place, and resisting the temptation to introduce obvious and novel marks and materials. The nature of the interventions remains a little obscure in the presentation.

doxiadis+ – Griechenland

1:1 Landskab – Denmark

Courtyard Classensgade

Statement of the jury:
This is an exceptional treatment of a space that is public as well as private. A dark courtyard is transformed into a metaphor of paradise through the motif of the carpet and fountain. The intriguing paving pattern is not quite supported by the quality of the other materials.
