around the world.
Advanced Environmental Analysis and Planning Class, University of California, Los Angeles Extension
Landscape architecture students are rising to the occasion to deal
with pressing issues from around the world. Winning projects from
this year’s ASLA Student Awards addressed rebuilding New Orleans
following Hurricane Katrina, environmental restoration in Spain,
earthquake recovery in Iran, and environmental conservation in California.
“These students demonstrated a passion for improving our world,”
remarked jury chair Gary Hilderbrand, FASLA.
Jurors faced an especially daunting task this year. From
more than 250 entries received, the largest number of submissions in the
history of the ASLA student awards program, the jury selected just 25 projects.
Jurors met for two days in June to consider projects in seven categories:
Analysis and Planning, Community Service, General Design, Residential Design,
Student Collaboration, Communications, and Research.
The jury consisted of Gary Hilderbrand, FASLA, principal of
Reed Hilderbrand Associates; Ignacio Bunster-Ossa, ASLA, of Wallace Roberts
& Todd LLC; Richard Hawks, FASLA, chair of the landscape architecture
faculty at State University of New York; Mia Lehrer, ASLA, principal of Mia
Lehrer + Associates; Elizabeth Meyer, FASLA, associate professor and director
of landscape architecture at the University of Virginia; Thomas Oslund, FASLA,
principal of oslund.and.associates; and Peter Lindsay Schaudt, ASLA, principal of
Peter Lindsay Schaudt Landscape Architecture Inc.
The awards will be presented on October 9, during the ASLA
Annual Meeting in Minneapolis.
