The jury evaluated works by categories evaluating them on the base of their professional quality, significance for the profession, possible positive effect for further development in this field, as well as in the base of presentation quality of works in accordance with exhibition criteria.
By examination and evaluation of works the jury found an increase in the number of works from abroad in relation to previous exhibition which to the exhibition of Landscape Architecture in Serbia gives even more international character. The jury is expecting that the exhibition of these works will have a positive effect on the landscape architecture in Serbia, especially on younger authors and their exit on international plan. However, in the category of realized projects, certain stagnation can be seen, especially in the offer of domestic authors, which can be the consequence of economy crisis. But in spite of this good works were offered in category of studies and research as well as very good choice of student’s projects.
After evaluation of works the Jury came to decision to give 11 rewards to exhibition participants of which two are Grand Prix rewards (one for professional one for students). Following rewards were given.

Project “Cami dels Corrals“ presents reordering of an old paths situated under the basilica of Santa Maria de la Seu located at the south slope of Puicardener hill which is above the river Cardener and is one of the most significant spatial landmarks of the Manrese in Catalonia (Spain).
Newly designed promenade formed on one side strong form of the hill, from pedestrian path functionally and aesthetically divided by white gravel and retaining walls from oxidised still and on the other reconstructed stone wall of medieval fortification which becomes a fence of different transparency level in relation to the river and constructed surrounding.
By adapting to the topography and including existing vegetation in the concept of space arrangement, as well as choice for usage of locally characteristics colouring and material, design solution of the promenade is founded on appreciation and underlying of natural and cultural specificity of this place. In a word it is a reduced rational solution which does not compete either with the object of basilica or beauty of nature, but not losing by this at author’s authenticity. By creating complete harmony of surrounding and newly designed public space, designer’s perception expression is not perceived in panoramic view in hill and the basilica (which only subtly emphasized), but it is first of all expressed at the level of experience of space and existing in it. It is manifested by careful composing of shape and rhythm of the promenade, forming of agreeable microambients as well as materialization of space by which accent are introduced which animate and chows attention. In this way authenticity is emphasized in the same time with the increase in identity of the place and the feeling of belonging and harmonization of man with his environment is created.
In the era of internationalisation and commercialization of public space designs, project “Cami dels Corrals”, represent an excellent example how an expressive but subtle author sign rationally and adequate for the place can be created, resulting in an authentic, functional and of high technical quality solution that strengthens and affirms existing and introduce new significance in public space of the lawn.
One to all mentioned the Jury is of opinion that this work deserves Grand Prix of the 3rd Landscape Architecture exhibition.
