Landscape architecture professor Christophe Girot from the ETH Zurich and the Volkswagen Foundation want to support young graduates of spatial design disciplines such as landscape architecture, architecture, and urban planning, as well as those of environmental and natural sciences, the humanities, and sociology programs who are interested in participating in the conference. To this end, 10 to 15 grants will be awarded. These will cover participation in the conference, meals, travel costs, and accommodation for three nights.
The graduates who are selected to participate will be asked to make a poster presenting ideas about what they consider to be the most pressing desiderata with regards to research and/or the design of the contemporary landscape. All posters (format A0) must be finished by 20 June 2013, when they will be presented to a jury by the graduates themselves. The posters will be made accessible to all participants until the end of the conference. Three winners (two selected by the jury, one selected by the conference’s participants) will then have an opportunity to present their thoughts to the general public at a science slam and will also be given a chance to publish their work.
Interested? See the website for program and what to send in to participate.
Submission deadline: 10 May 2013
