Penn State and Nürtingen University students and faculty

Fourth-year Penn State landscape architecture students who spent the spring semester studying abroad in Bonn, Germany, were tasked with a unique group project: Collaborate with students studying at Nürtingen University to connect the German city of Überlingen with Mainau Island, a well-established botanical garden located across Lake Constance, by designing “water gardens.” The designs would be submitted to the International Student Workshop where a jury of professionals would critique the work and select five finalists.
