CSLA Awards – Ontario region
The Canadian Society of Landscape Architects Professional Awards are given for outstanding accomplishment in landscape architecture at the national level. Congratulations to the Regional Award winners.
For this Awards issue of Ground, a panel of Editorial Board members was convened to discuss trends that might be identified in a selection of this year’s CSLA Regional Award winning projects by Ontario-based landscape architecture firms and to address general issues raised by awards programs.
The 2009 OALA Awards were presented in March during the OALA’s Annual General Meeting in Toronto. Congratulations to all those honoured with the awards, and a special thanks to the Honours, Awards and Protocol Committee: Nelson Edwards, Jim Melvin, Jim Vafiades, and Jane Welsh, and the Chair of the Committee, Linda Irvine.
