VA ASLA Awards Programs


The Virginia Chapter ASLA bestows a variety of awards to its members and allied professionals on an annual basis. The awards are typically presented at the Chapter’s Annual Meeting held during the fall.

Annual Professional Awards
The Chapter sponsors a professional awards program on a annual basis. The purpose of the program is to recognize excellence, exemplary performance, and significant contributions by the landscape architecture profession within the Commonwealth of Virginia; to encourage the application of visionary and progressive solutions to the issues, problems, and opportunities challenging landscape architects; and to provide a forum for the review and evaluation of work currently shaping our environment. Submissions are reviewed in three categories: design, planning and analysis, and research and communications. A jury is convened to review the submissions and select honor and merit award winning projects. The awards are presented at the annual conference.

2016 VA ASLA Professional and Student Awards

The VA ASLA Awards Committee sought to assemble a jury that represented the breadth of the profession, including private, public, institutional, and academic practice, and exemplify diversity in professional experience, geography, gender, and ethnicity. The 2016 jury was instructed to review the stated criteria of each category before beginning a spirited discussion of the merits of over 20 projects. The final awards represent the highest caliber of projects undertaken by landscape architecture firms and individuals practicing or studying in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Congratulations to all!
