Strelka KB has been announced as one of five finalists for the Landezine International Landscape Award in the ‘Office Profile’ category.
The Moscow-based urban consulting firm was selected for its new approach in addressing Russia’s urban issues through various projects: the urban environment quality index, the Consolidated Standard for Improvement of Moscow’s Streets, the My Street Program, the architecture and urban design competitions it runs, and for key improvements to public spaces it is organizing in 40 Russian cities.
The Landezine International Landscape Award (LILA) was created by Landezine, a popular landscape architecture website launched in 2009. For its third edition, LILA 2018 offers four categories (Office Profile, Gardens, Product Street Lights, and Public Project) and seven prizes.
Strelka KB was shortlisted by the jury for the ‘Office Profile’ category, together with French Atelier ROBERTA, French landscape architecture firm Mosbach paysagistes, Dutch landscape architecture and urban design practice Openfabric, and Australian practice Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL).
LILA received over 200 applications, and the contenders will be judged by Thorbjörn Andersson, Kristine Jensen, Sylvia Karres, Jacqueline Osty, and Ken Smith (now in charge of developing Manhattan’s embankments).
The winners will be announced on June 26, and the awards ceremony will take place at HafenCity University in Hamburg on October 13.
