Two of our recent projects are being recognized by The North Carolina Chapter of American Society of Landscape Architects (NCASLA) at today’s Virtual Awards Ceremony & Gala. The projects receiving awards provide practical applications of sustainable design, connections to the natural environment, innovative use of technology, and spaces that promote human interaction.
Stewart’s landscape architecture work on the Duke University Student Health & Wellness Center and Chimney Rock State Park Trail Structure in Chimney Rock, NC will be recognized with Merit Awards in the General Design – Professional category.
During the ceremony, Stewart’s Landscape Architecture Practice Leader Michael Batts, PLA, ASLA, Associate Director of Design Matt Evans, PLA, ASLA, and Project Manager Emily Blackwell, PLA, ASLA will speak on a panel entitled, “Health, Interaction, and Leadership through Design,” discussing innovative projects that connect people, place and opportunity.
Each of these panel members have made significant contributions to the realm of planning and landscape architecture in North Carolina by advancing cutting-edge designs and creating great places for people across our communities. The panel discussion will seek to provide an overview of the projects, the innovative approaches and techniques employed by the designers, and takeaways and lessons learned that can inform future design and planning efforts.
