One of the featured projects is the pink rubberised Superkilen park, which the landscape architects designed alongside Danish architecture firm BIG. Earlier this year, the project was awarded the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.

Edited by Barber Steiner with graphic design by Rasmus Koch Studio, the book documents the studio's approaches and methods – offering readers a behind-the-scenes look into the process of landscape architecture design.

The book's title pays tribute to Jorge Luis Borges, an Argentine short-story writer, essayist, poet and translator who Topotek 1 cites as a major influence.

"Following Borges' idea that mistranslations and fragmentary translations allow for displacements and regional transpositions that enrich the original rather than diminish it, Topotek 1 deals with gestalt, forms and content in an open and liberating manner," said Topotek 1.

Five readers will each receive one copy of the book, which is the result of a two-year collaboration between Topotek 1, editor Barbara Steiner and Copenhagen-based graphic designers Rasmus Koch Studio. It is produced by Jovis publishing.

This competition is now closed. Winners will be selected at random and notified by email, and their names will be published at the top of this page.
