Emerging landscape architects were invited to speculate on scenarios of future Australian landscapes. The competition asked entrants to present and illustrate a unique narrative for an existing Australian street, park or public open space in its current form, as a landscape of spectacle and as a landscape from collapse. The site could have been located anywhere in Australia from an urban, suburban or rural setting and represented from the eye level perspective of a pedestrian. There was no budget and entrants were encouraged to speculate imaginatively.

Entries were open to recent graduates (up to 2 years) or tertiary students of disciplines related to the built and natural environment, or design and creative industries studying at an Australian university during 2021. 

The winner and runner-ups were announced during the 2021 Festival on Friday 15 October.

Thank you to the 2021 Future Landscape Competition Jury, Prof. Maria Ignatieva, University of Western Australia, Prof. Martin Bryant University of Technology Sydney and Emily Wong, Landscape Architecture Australia
