best private plots – Die besten Gärten 2012 - the international competition is being held for the fifth time. The award honors exceptional achievements in the design of sustainable private outdoor spaces and gardens. This year 104 landscape architects, architects, garden designers and owners from 26 countries all over the world reacted to the call for entries. Submissions of realized gardens arrived from Argentinia, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Lebanon, Japan, South Africa, Russia, the USA and many states of Europe. The jury – Stig L. Andersson (DK), Franziska Bark Hagen (CH), Teresa Moller (CL), Vladimir Sitta (CZ/AU) und Tom Stuart-Smith (GB) – has screened all entries and nominated those realized gardens which combine innovation, usability and ecology in a most impressive way.

List of nominations

The international symposium public spots on private plots will take place on September 29th , 9:00 am – 3:30 pm at Essl Museum/Klosterneuburg/Austria in occasion of the award ceremony.

The symposium is also meant to be an open forum which fosters discussion of the design of outdoor private space.
