ASLA Medal: Linda Jewell, FASLA

Linda Jewell’s career spans decades of continuously excellent, ground-breaking work in teaching, practice and writing. In a profession that is still woefully short of woman-owned firms, she has founded and run three practices: first her own self-named firm, then Reynolds & Jewell in North Carolina, and since 1993, Freeman & Jewell in California. Her work with these firms has won numerous design awards, including an ASLA Honor Award for Hartford Riverfront Platform and Theater. She was the first woman to chair the Department of Landscape Architecture at Harvard, a position she held from 1987 to 1991. Following Harvard, she was a tenured professor at the University of California, Berkeley, where she served terms as chair of both the landscape architecture department and the urban design program and was a guiding force within the College of Environmental Design. She is now a professor emerita in Berkeley of landscape architecture and urban design.
