"The Island of Lost Objects"
Congratulations to Dr Jacky Bowring

Designing an island is a dream brief. Islands are seductive and intriguing. The places of dreams … and of nightmares.

The richness of islands as a landscape form was the focus for the recent Global Ideas Competition run by LA+Journal, based at the University of Pennsylvania.

180 entries were received from 33 countries, and five winners were selected, including Jacky Bowring from Lincoln University’s School of Landscape Architecture.

"to design an island… which as a former geographer, and a landscape architect, is of course a dream brief"
