10 Awards of the Association's Most Prestigious Awards Were Given
ASLA announced the receipts of their 2020 honors. These are a collection of 10 different awards and medals bestowed upon professionals in the industry who have shown expectational work and accomplishments throughout their careers. The honors are awarded annually and are selected by the association's board of trustees. They are said to reflect the greatest recognition ASLA bestows each year.
The ASLA Medal recognizes "a landscape architect whose lifetime achievements and contributions to the profession have had a unique and lasting impact on the welfare of the public and the environment." This year Anne Whiston Spirn, professor of landscape architecture and planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, received The ASLA Medal.
Martha Schwartz, senior partner of Martha Schwartz Partners, received The ASLA Design Medal. This medal is awarded "To recognize an individual landscape architect who has produced a body of exceptional design work at a sustained level for a period of at least ten years."
