Announcing LA+ CREATURE Design Competition

LA+, the interdisciplinary journal of landscape architecture at Weitzman, has announced LA+ CREATURE, the third in its international design ideas competition series. The competition explores how we can use design to open our cities, our landscapes, and our minds to a more symbiotic existence with other creatures.


LA+ CREATURE asks entrants to choose a nonhuman client and design something—a place, a structure, a thing, a process, a system—to improve its life. Your creature can be any species, any size, and live anywhere. The competition is open to all design disciplines and will be judged by an eminent interdisciplinary jury panel comprising Timothy Morton, Kate Orff, Richard Weller (professor and chair of landscape architecture, as well as Meyerson Chair of Urbanism and co-executive director of The McHarg Center at Weitzman), Jennifer Wolch, Andrew Grant, and Chris Reed. Oh, and there's a US $10,000 prize pool and publication in LA+ up for grabs!

Check out the competition website for details. Competition closes October 20, 2020.
