2007 ASLA Student Awards
Design with a Conscience: Award winners address issues of ecological stress, economic disparity, and social injustice through the lens of landscape.

By Lisa Owens Viani

2007 ASLA Student Awards University of Washington

This year’s student award winners have pushed the boundaries of landscape architecture to include all manner of design and analysis, from innovative treatments of shoreline and aquatic landscapes in Canada, Korea, China, and Israel to educational video games, sustainable garden installations, and multimedia tours of campus art. The winners also show a real sense of social justice with unique proposals for revitalization projects in struggling urban fringe areas, programs for community action and education after natural disasters, and creative responses to homeland security.

The jury selected 25 projects from the 276 entries this year. Jurors met for three days in June to consider projects in seven categories: Analysis and Planning, Community Service, Communications, Residential Design, General Design, Student Collaboration, and Research.

The jury consisted of Todd D. Johnson, FASLA, Jury Chair, Design Workshop, Denver; Dean Hill, ASLA, Terratecture, and host, Grounds for Improvement, Fishers, Indiana; Joan Honeyman, ASLA, Jordan Honeyman Landscape Architecture, Washington, D.C.; Leonard J. Hopper, FASLA, Mark K. Morrison Associates Ltd., New York; Shannon R. Nichol, ASLA, Gustafson Guthrie Nichol Ltd., Seattle; Mark Rios, FASLA, Rios Clementi Hale Studios, Los Angeles; and Lolly Tai, FASLA, Temple University, Ambler, Pennsylvania.

The awards will be presented on Monday, October 8, during the ASLA meeting in San Francisco.
