CSLA Announces the Recipients of the 2024 Awards of Excellence

Sea2City Design Challenge by PWL Partnership Landscape Architects Inc. + Mithun is Awarded the Jury's Award of Excellence

OTTAWA - 3 May 2024 - Today, the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) announced the recipients of the 2023 Awards of Excellence. This year, 15 projects received a national award. Sea2City Design Challenge by PWL Partnership Landscape Architects Inc. + Mithun is Awarded the Jury's Award of Excellence, which is given to one project annually which best demonstrates the CSLA's vision - of advancing the art, science, and practice of landscape architecture.

These award-winning projects are preeminent examples of Canadian landscape architecture. They illustrate the range of what landscape architects do and how landscape architects are helping to reshape our communities by defining the places where we live, work, and play. 

Winners were selected by a national jury of landscape architects. They were Claude Potvin (Chair), Elaine vanTol Smit, Travis Martin, Sung Ae Sim, Margot Kopache, and Alex Sarian (External Juror). A total of 53 submissions were received. Criteria applied by the jurors included:

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

National Awards are for work that demonstrate excellence against all judging criteria. These projects are nominated for the Jury's Award of Excellence, which is given to the project that best demonstrates the CSLA's vision (advancing the art, science, and practice of landscape architecture). 

The Awards of Excellence Ceremony will take place during the 2024 CSLA-MALA Congress in Winnipeg from May 30-June 1.
