The Botanical Garden, owned by the City of San Francisco, seeks a design solution that effectively communicates the historical significance of Gondwana in relation to the evolution and current horticultural communities of the Southern Hemisphere.
The Sponsor views this as a unique opportunity to provide visitors of all ages to the Garden with an understanding of the mechanics of plate tectonics and plant evolution as related to Gondwana through educational and interpretive aspects of the winning design. The Gondwana Circle is a significant locus for the Southern Hemisphere collections, and should include a focal feature (e.g. sculpture, water feature, etc.)
This competition is open to landscape architects, architects, artists, urban designers, educators, students and others interested in gardens and public art issues. Multi-disciplinary teams that include landscape architects and public artists are encouraged.
