Call for Posters: Young Researchers Thinking the Contemporary Landscape

Call for Posters: Young Researchers Thinking the Contemporary Landscape

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.

We ask those interested in participating to submit a project outline 
and a letter of motivation in English. In your letter, please describe 
where you feel urgent action is required with regard to the design of 
the landscape and urban open space. What do you think is currently the 
biggest problem and/or deficit? What types of content, and which forms 
of analysis and design should be addressed more vigorously in the 
future? Why do you wish to participate in the conference? What issues 
are important to you and should be discussed at the conference? In 
answering these questions, please try to refer to the three main topics 
of the conference: Science and Memory – Power and Terrain – Method and 
Design (please see programmatic texts:
