Boston – The first BSLA Design Challenge was won by Sarah Carrier, ASLA, with her project “Akimbo.” Over the summer, she will be working with the design and manufacturing team at Walpole Outdoors readying Akimbo to take center stage at New England Grows beginning November 29.
Carrier is a playground design consultant at Goric Playgrounds. Her passion is playground design, and she says that someday she will write a book on the subject. She built a pattern wall and magnetic ball run out of Azek and is excited for an opportunity to design another interactive piece with the same material.
Carrier has worked at a Boston-area landscape architecture and engineering firm prior to joining Goric.
The Award of Merit was given to Andrew Louw, ASLA, for his project “Spirograph.” He is a landscape designer at Beals and Thomas, Inc. in Southborough.
Both Louw and Carrier will be recognized at the open house on September 22 at Fairsted.
