EXPLORING THE AESTHETICS OF LANDSCAPE EXPERIENCE IN THE AGE OF SUSTAINABILITY

AN INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION FOR BUILT AND VISIONARY (UNBUILT) RESIDENTIAL LANDSCAPES

The James Rose Center hosted its second international residential design competition/exhibition, Suburbia Transformed 2.0, celebrating and promoting residential works that go beyond "green" to address the aesthetic quality of human experience in the process.

This competition invited students, as well as professional entries and included visionary (unbuilt), as well as built works.

Winning entries were published and displayed at the James Rose Center, as well as became a part of a traveling exhibition on contemporary residential design.

Thank you to all who participated in the competition.
