Mini-Golf Exhibit to Receive Momentum Award


The Downtown DC Business Improvement District will give a 2012 Momentum Award to the mini-golf exhibition created by the National Building Museum last summer. The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) sponsored a hole in the exhibition. The award will be presented on Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012.

According to the Downtown DC Business Improvement District, the mini-golf exhibition will be recognized under the “Downtown Experience” category for providing a unique, fun and entertaining experience encouraging residents and visitors to come to the Downtown area.

The ASLA entry was called “Take Back the Streets!” and featured a complete street with bike lanes, bus lanes, a trolley, and green spaces and trees. It was designed and built by Virginia Tech landscape architecture students Rebecca May and Luke Van Belleghem, Student ASLA, at the Washington–Alexandria Architecture Center in Alexandria, Virginia, with help from Seth Estep and Brian Green.

Other participating teams included OLIN and Landscape Architecture Bureau.

The Momentum Awards celebrate the people, programs and projects that make the Downtown area a remarkable urban experience. This year's Momentum Awards will honor 11 downtown leaders, doers and most talked about projects in eight categories at this much anticipated ceremony.
