Luana gardens design competition


Last week saw the close of the exhibition of the Luana Gardens Competition, held in Kingston, Jamaica. Of the 17 International entries, a dozen compliant boards were exhibited, in the courtyard of the HAJ building including the first, second and third place entries.

first place - Collaboration of Kingston 10 and Clifton Yap Architects -
second place - Interplan Planning Consultants
third place - Marvin Goodman

The details of the Luana Gardens Competition was to propose a comprehensive master plan for a site in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica focussed on the provision of 850 housing units, open spaces, infrastructure, and the inclusion of a number of municipal buildings (schools, post-office, police station, etc). Teams equally had to consider social solutions as well as ecological ones from passive cooling, site drainage and energy collection/preservation.

"Interplan Planning Consultants was actually 2nd place." and to think they beat Marvin Goodman. Interplan is not really an architecture firm.
