From the 4th to the 7th of October 2023, a new edition of the Barcelona International Biennial of Landscape Architecture will take place to reflect on how to face future challenges in the built environment and evaluate how the landscape could become a primary tool to achieve climate change mitigation. The event will bring together, for one more year, professionals and experts in landscape architecture in the event that has become a reference on an international scale.
The Barcelona International Landscape Biennial includes the Rosa Barba International Landscape Prize for the best-built landscape projects, a Symposium revolving around the latest concerns in Landscape Architecture and both an exhibition of the Rosa Barba finalist projects. The installation “Pop up Green” will also be presented during the Biennial and the launch of the Book-catalogue of the 11th Barcelona International Landscape Biennial (2021).
The first edition of the Barcelona International Biennial of Landscape Architecture arises from the desire to deepen and generate debate about the landscape. Not only from an environmental point of view but also one of the motors of landscape conservation, even through landscape architecture. Research is relevant in all the disciplinary fields linked to landscape study and its evolution. Each edition revolves around a central theme; a motto is chosen according to current affairs and concerns, both professional and social, related to the landscape.
The mottos of the previous Biennial read as follow:
- “Remaking landscape” (1999),
- “Gardens in Arms” (2001),
