2004 Landmark Award

The nine-member jury selected 33 projects to receive awards from a field of over 550 entries. “I was especially impressed with the quality of the projects at all scales and at various levels of budgets," said Frederick R. Steiner, ASLA, jury chair and Dean of the College of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin. "The best projects displayed great understanding of natural processes, considerable sensitivity to people, and a high level of design acumen. I believe the award recipients exemplify the many contributions that landscape architects are making to improve our built environments.”

The ASLA Awards Program is administered by the ASLA Library and Education Advocacy Fund, a nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization established by ASLA in 2001. The ASLA Fund is dedicated to expanding the body of knowledge of the landscape architecture profession, to promoting the value of landscape architecture, and to increasing public understanding of environmental and land use issues and principles.

Founded in 1899, ASLA is the national professional association for landscape architects representing more than 14,200 members. Landscape architecture is a comprehensive discipline of land analysis, planning, design, management, preservation, and rehabilitation.
