CSLA Announces the Recipients of the 2020 Awards of Excellence

The Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) has announced the recipients of its 2020 Awards of Excellence. This year, 13 projects that illustrate how landscape architects are reshaping communities by defining work, living and play places received a national award.

A national jury of landscape architects selected winners from a total of 68 submissions.

Criteria applied by the jurors included demonstration of a deep understanding of the craft of landscape architecture and attention to composition and detail; excellence in leadership, project management, breadth of work, new directions or new technology; promotion of the discipline amongst related professions, clients and the general public; and exemplary environmental and/or social awareness.
