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 linked to its study and evolution. The Biennial has been consolidated on a European scale in its seven previous editions: Remaking Landscapesâ€ (1999), Gardens in Armsâ€ (2001), Only with Natureâ€ (2003), Landscape: a Product / a Productionâ€ (2006), Storm & stressâ€ (2008), Liquid Landscapeâ€ (2010) and “Biennial versus Biennial” (2012); during the last eighthâ€‹ and â€‹nineth editions, the Biennial has unveiled new landscape realities through the internationalization of its Rosa Barba Landscape Prize.
With A Landscape for Youâ€â€‹ (2014) and “Tomorrow Landscapes” (2016),â€‹ Barcelona opened itself to international landscapes for the first time. This September, with its â€‹tenth edition â€‹Perfomative Natureâ€ the symposium â€‹will take place in the Petit Palau de la Música for three days and includâ€‹ing talks, presentations by those finalists competing for the Rosa Barba Landscape Prize, papers, roundtable discussions, exhibitions and samples from which we be able to track and discuss the evolution of landscape architecture worldwide.
