A Global Perspective Advanced Environmental Analysis and Planning Class, University of California, Los Angeles Extension

Landscape architecture students are rising to the occasion to deal with pressing issues from around the world. Winning projects from this year’s ASLA Student Awards addressed rebuilding New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, environmental restoration in Spain, earthquake recovery in Iran, and environmental conservation in California. “These students demonstrated a passion for improving our world,” remarked jury chair Gary Hilderbrand, FASLA. 

Jurors faced an especially daunting task this year. From more than 250 entries received, the largest number of submissions in the history of the ASLA student awards program, the jury selected just 25 projects. Jurors met for two days in June to consider projects in seven categories: Analysis and Planning, Community Service, General Design, Residential Design, Student Collaboration, Communications, and Research.

The jury consisted of Gary Hilderbrand, FASLA, principal of Reed Hilderbrand Associates; Ignacio Bunster-Ossa, ASLA, of Wallace Roberts & Todd LLC; Richard Hawks, FASLA, chair of the landscape architecture faculty at State University of New York; Mia Lehrer, ASLA, principal of Mia Lehrer + Associates; Elizabeth Meyer, FASLA, associate professor and director of landscape architecture at the University of Virginia; Thomas Oslund, FASLA, principal of; and Peter Lindsay Schaudt, ASLA, principal of Peter Lindsay Schaudt Landscape Architecture Inc.

The awards will be presented on October 9, during the ASLA Annual Meeting in Minneapolis.
