Firth Fun Competition
competition categories: Urban Landscape & Small Project
This year's conference discussed the relationship between design and disruption, and considered how designers encourage innovation and creativity. The conference considered ways of disrupting convention to create new ways of acting and being.
Entrants were asked to submit entries where they or their team had demonstrated disruption or influenced landscape design to create new ways of acting and being, or had created a space that solved a problem, enhanced the surroundings and improved or maintained the natural environment, including waterways.
In keeping with the conference “Disruption” theme the two competition categories were:
- Urban Landscape
- Small Project
Firth’s “Disruption” fun competition provided Landscape Architects an opportunity to showcase their completed landscaping project (2017 to current).
- One winner per category took away a $500 Visa Prezzy Card.
- The projects will feature in Firth’s newsletter, website and social media.
Finalists were selected using the following scoring criteria:
- The project demonstrates disruption, change and a rewiring of existing thinking – 1 point
- The product is from Firth’s concrete or paving/masonry range – 1 point
- Concrete/masonry product used sustainably – 1 point
- The final point to a worthy winner by the conference delegates – 1 point
Entries from the category finalists were displayed at the conference. Conference attendees were invited to vote on their favourite project in each category. One point was awarded per vote (only one vote for each category per attendee were allowed).
