Saxhóll Staircase Receives Award Nomination

Icelandic landscape architecture firm Landslag has been nominated for an international award for their staircase up Saxhóll crater in Snæfellsjökull National Park. RÚV reported first.

The prize, known as the Rosa Barba Landscape Architecture International Prize, will be awarded at the International Biennial of Landscape Architecture of Barcelona in September. Landslag is one of nine nominees from around the world, including firms from China, Mexico, France and Israel.

This is the Icelandic firm’s second nomination for the award, the first being in 2003 for the design of avalanche protection walls in Siglufjörður, North Iceland.
