The Biennial
Since its first edition, the European Landscape Biennial has expressed its desire to intently study and discuss landscape interventions, as much from the perspective of landscape architecture as from other disciplines that are linked to its study and evolution.
The Biennial has been consolidated on a European scale in its six previous editions—“Remaking Landscapes” (1999), “Gardens in Arms” (2001), “Only with Nature” (2003), “Landscape: a Product / a Production” (2006)— Storm & stress (2008) and “Liquid
Landscape” (2010).And also on an international scale in the lasts edition as we have focused on the contemporary landscapes of USA and China.

Barcelona will open itself to landscape in a symposium adapted to contemporary circumstances. This symposium will last three days and will include talks, presentations by those finalists competing for the Rosa Barba European Landscape Award, papers, roundtable discussions, exhibitions and samples from which we will be able to track and discuss the evolution of landscape design in Europe..

Biennial against Biennial
Due to our circumstances most territorial and cultural disciplines are ranging from anxiety and emergence. Thus, the VII Biennial
of Landscape Barcelona claims to be both a catalyst for doubt and a driver to illusions and changes in the field of Landscape Architecture.
The announcing of this year’s event suggests interest in discovering new ways of action, while exploring inhospitable areas and guiding discussion towards rethinking old certainties and providing new sensitivities certitudes. Biennial against Biennial wants
to be present at the discussion of what should be the landscape design and planning nowadays , aiming to provide a plausible (and exciting) future.
Consequently, the biennial will review formats, formulas, concepts and professional practice objectives while watching herself critically as the main living platform for European Landscape and watchtower of the International Landscape Architecture movements.
