Internationally renowned landscape architecture website Landezine is calling on landscape architecture professionals to send submissions for the second edition of Landezine International Landscape Award (LILA).

LILA aims to honour progressive practices that are exploring contemporary landscape issues and offering creative solutions to challenges facing the profession.

The award was launched last year and presided over by Topos Magazine founder Robert Schäfer, with the inaugural award for best office going to Catalonian practice Estudio Marti French.

This year’s awards are being expanded to include five awards over three categories ­– a jury and popular choice award for best office and individual project and a popular choice award for a product, such as a public bench or chairs.

Australian Perry Lethlen, director of the Melbourne office of Taylor Cullity Lethlean, will join Robert Schäfer and last year’s winner Martí Franch on a six-person jury that also includes Kathryn Gustafson, Chih-Wei G.V. Chang and Kai-Uwe Bergmann.

The deadline for submissions is 26 May and the winners will be announced in September.
