IFLA WC 2019: Student Competition & Charette
AKTUELT / 23.04.19
IFLA invites student to participate in the design competition for the development of Grønvold Park, Oslo, and the Student Charette hosted by Kurt Johannessen. Submission deadline for the student competition has been extended to 20th May
Landscape architects work across large and small scales to face a variety of global and local challenges. This year’s congress will take a closer look at urban transformation, green mobility, healthy and beautiful landscapes and public participation.
NMBU – Norwegian University of Life Sciences will organise and programme the Student Design Competition.
As part of this congress, students are asked to challenge what “Common Ground” means in small transformation areas in the dense city. IFLA invites students in small groups to interpret the concepts of “common ground” to Hovinbyen, a former industrial area in central Oslo that is currently undergoing a large re-development.
The site of the proposed Grønvold Park contains a historic farmhouse and small green spaces, the remains from the site’s use as a match factory in the 19th Century. Today’s development includes planning for a new primary school and mixed used development neighboring the proposed park. In addition, the 6000m2 site will have no motorized traffic.
The competition’s challenge is to interpret the concepts of “Common Ground” to develop a new identity for the proposed Grønvold Park as a new sustainable link in Hovinbyen’s larger transformation.
Deadline for submission has been extended to 20th May 2019.

AHO – the Oslo School of Architecture and Design will host and programme the Student Charrette.
The programme will be prelaunched in February 2019 and finally launched in March 2019.
As a visual artist, Kurt Johannessen works with performance, texts and books. He has presented his performances in several countries all over the world and published nearly 100 books. Several of the latest books are part of a series called “Om noko” (“About Something”) and have been complemented by performance talks. Click here for more information on Kurt’s work.
We invite students from all over the world to participate in this Charette lead by Kurt Johannessen, from 14 to 19 September. The workshop will take place at the Oslo School of Architecture (AHO) and is part of the IFLA 2019 World Congress “COMMON GROUND”. Applications may be sent from 1 April and the deadline will be 8 April 2019.
