Congratulations to University of Cape Town Landscape Architecture students
Five Master of Landscape Architecture students entered an international student competition for the redesign of a portion of the Nairobi River running through the centre of Nairobi.
The students proposed creative solutions to the challenges facing cities and the design and planning of rivers that run through them.
Three of the students were placed in the top four, including wining first prize of $1000.
The competition was judged by five international landscape architects with the award ceremony being held at the International Federation of Landscape Architects Africa Symposium held in the first week of October in Nairobi.
The student’s projects were praised for the high quality of the landscape architectural concepts, the level of innovation, the depth of ecological aspects and the feasibility of the overall projects.
