The jury for this year’s competition was comprised of members of the Minnesota Chapter of ASLA.

Founded in 1899, the American Society of Landscape Architects is the national professional association for landscape architects, representing more than 15,000 members. Landscape architecture is a comprehensive discipline of land analysis, planning, design, management, preservation and rehabilitation. ASLA promotes the landscape architecture profession and advances the practice through advocacy, education, communication and fellowship.

To be eligible, an applicant must be a landscape architect or designer in the state of Connecticut, and the entrant or project location must be based in Connecticut.

“We enjoyed a record number of submissions to our awards program this year, involving a wide variety of project types,” said Thomas Hammerberg, president of CTASLA and a landscape architect at Stantec, in New Haven. “A number of winners involved projects outside of Connecticut, too. This tells me the profession is robust, and our firms are thriving, talented, and in demand.”
