Olin Partnership

The ASLA Landscape Architecture Firm Award is the highest honor that the American Society of Landscape Architects may bestow on a landscape architecture firm. Its purpose is to recognize landscape architecture firms that have produced bodies of distinguished work influencing the professional practice of landscape architecture.

The Olin Partnership has designed such award winning projects as Columbus Circle (New York); the J. Paul Getty Center (Los Angeles); Robert F. Wagner Jr. Park in Battery Park City (New York); and the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2003, ASLA bestowed The Landmark Award and four additional national awards on the Olin Partnership in the categories of design, analysis, and planning. In 2005 Laurie Olin, FASLA, received the ASLA Design Medal and was a keynote speaker at the Society’s Annual Meeting in Fort Lauderdale.

The firm’s projects span the globe, from New York to Los Angeles, to new squares in London and commercial development in Barcelona. Their work on national monuments, including Independence Historical Park in Philadelphia and the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., provide elegant proof that security design and good design are not mutually exclusive.

The firm’s unique breadth of experience has allowed it to create extraordinary waterfront projects—among them Canary Wharf in London and Camana Bay on Grand Cayman. It is also an innovator in rooftop landscapes and campus master plans.
