CSLA announces recipients of 2019 National Awards

Recently, the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) announced the recipients of the Awards of Excellence.

This year, 15 projects received a national award. One project, the Rooted in Clay – WY Garden (Winnipeg, MB) by Straub Thurmayr Landscape Architects, was selected for the Jury’s Award of Excellence, which is given to one project annually which best demonstrates the CSLA’s vision — that of advancing the art, science and practice of landscape architecture. 

These award-winning projects are preeminent examples of Canadian landscape architecture. They illustrate the range of what landscape architects do and how landscape architects are helping to reshape our communities by defining the places where we live, work and play. According to the jury:

This year’s awards demonstrate that project excellence doesn’t always have to come from big bucks and be of huge scale to make an impact. Projects such as the Jury’s Award of Excellence, Rooted in Clay, or the outdoor play space of Winnipeg’s Casa Montessori, or the simplicity of the way finding tools of Escales découvertes (large scale) clearly demonstrate that in many cases, simple approaches can be extremely effective.
