Welcome to Miniature Arboreal Visions – Tiny Forest Design 2024, an extraordinary platform beckoning architects, designers, and visionaries alike to embark on a journey of imagination and innovation. In this unique competition, participants are invited to delve into the realm of creativity, where miniature ecosystems blossom within the confines of urban landscapes.

At its core, Miniature Arboreal Visions is not merely a contest; it is a testament to the power of sustainable design and the symbiotic relationship between humanity and nature. With a focus on nurturing green spaces within bustling cityscapes, this competition challenges participants to redefine conventional notions of architecture and urban planning.

Through the lens of sustainability, participants are encouraged to craft miniature forests that serve as microcosms of ecological harmony, breathing life into the concrete jungles that define our modern world. Each design becomes a canvas for creativity, a testament to the ingenuity of those who dare to imagine a future where nature thrives alongside human innovation.

As we venture into the heart of this competition, let us not only seek to showcase our architectural prowess but also to inspire a paradigm shift in how we perceive and interact with our urban environments. Together, let us weave a tapestry of miniature arboreal visions, where the beauty of nature intertwines seamlessly with the fabric of urban life.



The primary goal of this competition is to inspire innovative designs for miniature forests within urban spaces. Participants are encouraged to explore creative solutions that enhance biodiversity, provide recreational spaces, and contribute to the overall well-being of urban communities.



Participants are required to design a miniature forest within a urban site. The design should consider the following aspects:

  • Biodiversity: Integrate a diverse range of plant species to create a balanced ecosystem.
  • Recreational Spaces: Include areas for community engagement, relaxation, and social activities.
  • Sustainability: Implement eco-friendly design principles, including rainwater harvesting, renewable energy, and waste reduction.
  • Accessibility: Ensure the forest is easily accessible to the public and promotes inclusivity.



The competition allows participants to choose their own location for their design. The design should, however, take into account the potential site conditions such as climate, topography, and environment.



Creativity and innovation are highly valued. While the basic program and requirements are outlined, participants have the flexibility to explore unique design approaches, materials, and construction techniques. The design should be adaptable to various urban settings.


Sustainability is a key focus of this competition. Participants should prioritize eco-friendly design practices, energy efficiency, and the use of sustainable materials. Consideration should be given to the lifecycle of the project, including maintenance and future adaptability.



  1. Participants are required to submit a comprehensive project proposal that includes:
  2. Conceptual Design: Clearly articulate the design concept and its connection to the competition theme.
  3. Site Analysis: Demonstrate an understanding of the site context and how the design responds to it.
  4. Technical Details: Provide technical drawings, plans, and sections illustrating the proposed design.
  5. Sustainability Features: Outline the sustainable design features and strategies incorporated into the project.
  6. Visual Representation: Include renderings, models, or any visual aids that effectively communicate the design.
