2012 Landscape Architecture Medal of Excellence Recipient
Design Workshop's Design Week
Design Workshop's Design Week will receive the Landscape Architecture Medal of Excellence. The award recognizes significant contributions to landscape architecture policy, research, education, project planning and design, or a combination of these items. Design Week, a pro bono effort launched in 2004 by the Design Workshop, is aimed at creating a link between education and practice. It is a national program that joins landscape architecture students with students from other disciplines, faculty, and a real client in a collaborative learning environment to pursue a real project. Design Workshop has taken teams of design professionals to more than 10 universities across the United States engaging more than 1,600 students.
