Announcing the 2023 Connecticut Landscape Architecture Awards!
The Connecticut Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA Connecticut) has announced the winners of its annual Connecticut Professional Awards competition, recognizing excellence in landscape architectural design, planning and analysis, communication, and research. To be eligible, applicants must be a landscape architect or designer in the state of Connecticut, and the entrant or project location must be based in Connecticut.
“This is my third year working on our professional awards and it was a pleasure to finally have it in person," said Ellen Fallon-Senechal, president of ASLA Connecticut and a landscape designer with S/L/A/M Collaborative in Glastonbury. "Masterful, clever, and beautiful landscape architecture is so important for the health of our local communities — both social and ecological — so it's an honor to shepherd this process of peer review of all the great work in Connecticut. All the award winners have proven themselves stewards of the environment and we look forward to watching their projects get better with age as well as seeing what projects they do next!"
