Project: Access Road Ecotones
2018 Honor Award for Analysis, Planning, and Urban Design
Presented to Landscape Architecture Bureau
Driven by a desire to benefit local communities and ecosystems, multiple teams of experts collaborated on the design of a one-and-a-half mile-long urban infrastructure in Washington, DC. The Access Road Ecotones project aims to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes for both human and natural environments, as it encourages neighborhood revitalization with pedestrian and vehicular infrastructure connectivity all while benefitting local wildlife with curated groupings of native plantings. The design team expects that the site will be the testing ground for future landscape research and will establish a foundation for thoughtful planting interventions in the metropolitan area. The Landscape Architecture Bureau has received the Honor Award for this amazing effort in Analysis, Planning and Urban Design.
