The ASLA elevates Michael Blier to the Council of Fellows

The American Society of Landscape Architects has elevated 23 members to the ASLA Council of Fellows for 2017. Fellowship is among the highest honors the ASLA bestows on members and recognizes the contributions of these individuals to their profession and society at large based on their works, leadership and management, knowledge and service. The 2017 class of new fellows will be recognized at the 2017 ASLA Annual Meeting and Expo, October 20–23, in Los Angeles.

The designation of Fellow is conferred on individuals in recognition of exceptional accomplishments over a sustained period of time. Individuals considered for this distinction must be members of ASLA in good standing for at least 10 years and must be recommended to the Council of Fellows by the Executive Committee of their local chapter, the Executive Committee of ASLA or the Executive Committee of the Council of Fellows. 

It is important to note that Michael is honored to have been nominated by leadership at the Boston Society of Landscape Architects and hugely thankful for their support during the nomination process. As a design community, we owe a debt of gratitude to the BSLA for the continual support they provide for their members as well as for their collective and persistent efforts to maintain and expand a dynamic Chapter here in Boston. Congratulations to the entire team at the BSLA.

New work on the boards - April

Landworks Studio, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been invited to join the Performa Inc. team in the development of the site in Wisconsin that will celebrate the life of Adele Brise, a 19th century nun. This site has recently been recognized by the Vatican as one of the 11 most sacred sites in the world. 

We are excited to once again be teamed with old friends at Performa. Our working relationship began several years ago when we were teamed with Office dA on the Madawaska Border Crossing Project (GSA Design Excellence Program).

Landworks Studio, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has been named to lead the development of a new master plan for the growing Campus in West Chester, PA.  We are also pleased to have invited Biohabitats to join us. Together, working with the WCU team, we will seek to create a more ecologically active vision for the future of West Chester University.
