Public spaces shortlisted for international urban landscape award

Lea River Park in east London and a project examining flood management are among the shortlisted entries for the International Urban Landscape Award (IULA) 2009.

A panel of judges from Germany and the UK have whittled 43 entries down to five finalists competing for the prize.
