The Peter-Joseph-Lenné-Prize of the State of Berlin is the world’s largest ideas competition for young talents in garden and landscape architecture, open space planning and urban development who are studying or already working in these fields.

The prize contributes to the introduction of fresh, creative ideas for design, planning and the use of plants in landscape architecture and open space planning, and at the same time supports the professional development of young planners and designers.

The competition was first held in 1965 and consists of three tasks at different scales: Berlin (Task A Regional), Germany (Task B National), and the international area (Task C International).

The Peter-Joseph-Lenné-Prize celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2024

In the anniversary year 2024, the tasks range from visions for the transformation of a transport axis to the redesign of a landscape disturbed by open-cast mining and the planning of a Mediterranean coastal section.
