Best in Canadian landscape architecture recognized by the CSLA Awards of Excellence


Today, the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) announced the national and regional winners of its annual Awards of Excellence. This year, 11 preeminent examples in Canadian landscape architecture projects received a national award honouring distinctive design, ground-breaking research, and sustainable landscape management.

Winners were selected by a national jury of landscape architects. National and Regional awards are presented in three categories: Honour, Merit, and Citations. Honour Awards recipients demonstrate excellence in all judging criteria, Merit Awards in some criteria, and Citations in particular categories. The principal criteria applied by the jurors were:

  • demonstration of a deep understanding of the craft of landscape architecture including attention to composition and detail
  • demonstration of excellence in leadership, project management, breadth of work, new directions or new technology
  • innovation in concept, process, or implementation
  • promotion of the discipline amongst related professions, clients and the general public
