For første gang nogensinde går den finske pris til en landskabsarkitekt

Prisen tilfalder landskabsarkitekt Gretel Hemgård for sin kunstneriske tilgang til landskabsarkitekturen, og sit lange og engagerede arbejde som talsperson inden for landskabsarkitekturen.

Baggrund for tildeling af prisen

“Gretel Hemgård (born 1948) has been involved in artistic work for years as a creator of landscape architecture, both in landscape design and restoration and she has contributed extensively to the landscape perspective and landscape architecture both internationally and domestically.

The objects of Hemgård’s restoration projects include well-known manor and villa parks, Finland’s oldest public and institutional parks, botanic gardens and landscapes of high cultural value. Her work emphasizes long-term planning, from historical and plant studies to maintenance management. Many of her projects are the best of their kind in Finland.

Her designs have also created a wide range of architecture, parks, streets, cemeteries, courtyards and landscapes in new urban developments, in which landscape design and architecture are uncompromisingly and intrinsically linked to the architecture while also standing as independent works.

The State Prize for Architecture is awarded by the National Council for Architecture and Design.”
