The New York chapterÂ of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is celebrating its 100thÂ anniversary this year at the 2014 Presidentâ€™s Dinner Gala. For this occasion, the ASLA has selected the Rockefeller Foundation’s Judith Rodin, the Trust for Governors Island’s Leslie Koch, and the NY1 News Organization as their honored guests.
The New York Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects announced the winners of their annual Design Awards. For the 2014 edition, 5 submissions received honors and additional 13 were chosen for merits from a field of 70. Participants from various New York-based firms provided designs for sites found within the city as well as other parts of the country. Award-recipients will be displaying their designs at the Center for Architecture beginning on April 3rd through the end of the month.
Last week during the annual American Society of Landscape Architects’ New York Chapter’s President’s Dinner,Â The Architect’s Newspaper was honored for its continued coverage of landscape architecture. In tandem with the award, AN published our first issue devoted entirely to landscape architecture and urban design, in recognition of the discipline’s expanding civic role.
