The green infrastructure design challenge has been set by research organisation, the UK Climate Impacts Programme (UKCIP) and professional body, the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).
The competition invites entrants to come up with creative designs for indoor and outdoor planting that can address environmental concerns in offices, such as poor indoor air quality and reduced levels of staff productivity.
It is open to individuals or teams, from student level through to qualified practitioners and researchers.
Submissions can focus on a building that entrants are working on, or can be applied specifically to The Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation at London South Bank University.
Sara Kassam, head of sustainability at CIBSE said, "We need imaginative solutions to integrate green infrastructure into existing and new buildings, and this competition will show us what’s out there".
The deadline for entering the competition is 8 May, and entries will be displayed in an exhibition during Green Sky Thinking Week, a programme of sustainability-themed events across London, which runs from 15-19 May.
UKCIP is based at the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford, and manages the ARCC Network, which is organizing the competition.
