11th International Landscape Biennial
The first edition of the International Landscape Biennial arises from the desire to deepen and generate debate about the landscape. Not only from an environmental point of view but also one of the motors of landscape conservation; even through landscape architecture. Research is relevant in all the disciplinary fields that link to the study of landscape and its evolution. Each edition revolves around a central theme; a motto is chosen according to current affairs and concerns, both professional and social, related to the landscape.
The Biennial was consolidated at European level after the first seven editions: “Refent paisatges” (1999), “Jardins insurgents” (2001), “Només amb natura” (2003), “Paisatge: un producte / una producció” (2006) , “Tempesta i ímpetu” (2008), “Paisatges Líquids” (2010) i "Biennal versus Biennal" (2012). After that, there was a turning point in the ninth edition, which brought us closer to new landscape realities of the worls through the internationalization of its Rosa Barba Landscape Award. The call was consolidated with the following editions: "A Landscape for You" (2014), "Tomorrow Landscape" (2016) and "Perfomative Natures" (2018).
Barcelona will open again on the International Landscape in September 2020 with its 11th edition, entitled "Climate Change Again", where debates and round tables will focus on climate change issues and propose how to tackle these issues that affect us.
