The international competition best private plots – Die besten Gärten 2012 is the fifth in the series. The award honors exceptional achievements in the design of sustainable private outdoor spaces and gardens.
The competition highlights gardens as a contemporary dialogue between architecture, ecology and landscape, as places of inspiration and creation, as habitats that tell stories. The award criteria include artistic and conceptual quality, ecological use of plants and materials, delimitation and organization of outdoor space. A focus lies on variety of uses and sustainability.
The outdoor spaces must be clearly identifiable as intended for private residence and use, and must have been created no more than ten years ago. Awards are given in recognition of newly designed gardens or of redesign of existing gardens.
The competition is open and international. Landscape architects, architects, artists, gardeners, garden owners and combinations thereof from all countries are eligible.
