Colour and Wayward Plants shortlisted in Miami park competition

Multidisciplinary practices Colour and Wayward Plants are the only British companies to be shortlisted in a competition to design a park in Miami, Florida.

The international architecture ideas competition seeks to find a design for a 1,300sq m pocket park in Wynwood, a former Puerto Rican barrio and manufacturing district that has been colonised by artists and creatives but is short of green space. It is expected that the park will be built as part of a commercial development Metro 1’s Wynwood Gateway by the end of this year.

Urban design, masterplanning and landscape architecture practice Colour, which has offices in London, Newcastle and Doha, worked with Wayward Plants, a multidisciplinary team of landscape architects, designers, growers and scientists, on the project and their submission was chosen as one of 11 finalists selected from 238 entries from 23 countries.

A winner is due to be announced on August 29 and will receive $10,000 in prize money, with second and third prizes of $5,000 and $2,500.

Practices from Bahrain, China, Iran,  Spain, France, Montenegro, India,  Italy, Mexico, Germany, Japan, Dominican Reublic, Colombia and Australia entered.
