Upcoming European Biennial of Landscape Architecture


"Due to our circumstances most territorial and cultural disciplines are ranging from anxiety and emergence. Thus, the VII Biennial of Landscape Barcelona claims to be both a catalyst for doubt and a driver to illusions and changes in the field of Landscape Architecture.

The announcing of this year’s event suggests interest in discovering new ways of action, while exploring inhospitable areas and guiding discussion towards rethinking old certainties and providing new sensitivities certitudes. Biennial against Biennial wants to be present at the discussion of what should be the landscape design and planning nowadays , aiming to provide a plausible (and exciting) future.

Consequently, the biennial will review formats, formulas, concepts and professional practice objectives while watching herself critically as the main living platform for European Landscape and watchtower of the International Landscape Architecture movements."
