Landscape Institute creates awards to encourage student creativity

"Creative thinking" will be a major driver of the Homes & Communities Agency-led Future Vision awards, run for the first time this year by the Landscape Institute.

The institute is running the student scheme for the next two years. Policy and communications manager Paul Lincoln told HW that it would generate some exciting work. "It encourages people to think creatively," he explained.

Targeted at UK postgraduates and undergraduates, Future Vision 2010 is designed to unearth new ideas that could improve communities and generate interest in housing and regeneration careers.

Winners receive £1,000 and an expenses-paid work placement. Award categories include future buildings, future work life, future open spaces, future green thinking and future play time.

The winners will be announced at the Landscape Institute's awards ceremony on 18 November. Visit
