Iowa State University alumnus James Patchett, FASLA, is the recipient of the 2013 Christian Petersen Design Award presented by the ISU College of Design. Patchett will be honored at a ceremony Monday, August 26. Established in 1980, the award is given annually to alumni, staff, and friends of the university for distinguished work that advances the design and art professions. Considered one of the innovators in melding art, science, and engineering in design, Patchett founded Conservation Design Forum in 1994, with offices in Elmhurst, Illinois, and Ann Arbor, Michigan. CDF’s projects include one of the most famous green roofs in the world, located atop Chicago’s City Hall. It won a Merit Award from ASLA and an Honor Award from the Illinois ASLA in 2002.

James Urban, FASLA, is this year’s recipient of the International Society of Arboriculture’s (ISA) Award of Achievement. The award recognizes ISA members for outstanding work in advancing the cause of arboriculture. ISA President Terrence Flanagan honored Urban at a ceremony on Sunday, August 4 in Toronto, as part of the 2013 ISA Annual Conference and Trade Show. Urban, the owner of Urban Trees + Soils in Annapolis, Maryland, is considered a leading voice in landscape architecture for the arboriculture industry. Since 1982, he has researched and tested his ideas related to the installation of trees in the urban environment. His book, Up By Roots, is a study on principle tree and soil references.
