Challenge Title: Circular Economy Based Landscape Design Challenge
Challenge Difficulty: Intermediate
Estimated Time to Complete: 48-72 hours
Required Tools/Resources: Sketching materials, computer software for design, access to online resources on circular economy principles

Objective

Design a sustainable landscape that follows the principles of the circular economy, focusing on minimizing waste and maximizing resource efficiency.

Research

Research existing landscape design practices that incorporate circular economy principles. Identify key elements such as regenerative agriculture, water conservation techniques, and use of recycled materials in landscaping.

Materials

Select materials for the landscape design based on their sustainability credentials. Consider using reclaimed wood, recycled plastics, and natural materials that can be easily reused or repurposed.

Concept Development

Brainstorm innovative ideas for incorporating circular economy concepts into your landscape design. Think about ways to create a closed-loop system where waste from one part of the landscape can be used as a resource in another.

Deliverables

  1. Concept sketches illustrating the layout and key features of the sustainable landscape.
  2. Detailed plans showing how different elements of the design will interact to create a self-sustaining ecosystem.
  3. A written explanation of how your design incorporates circular economy principles and promotes sustainability.

Evaluation Criteria

Projects will be evaluated based on:
1. Innovation in applying circular economy concepts to landscape design.
2. Usability and practicality of the proposed solutions.
3. Environmental impact assessment showcasing how your design minimizes waste and maximizes resource efficiency.

This challenge aims to inspire designers to think creatively about sustainable landscaping practices while considering the broader implications of their designs on environmental sustainability.
