BSLA Awards

BSLA's highly regarded awards program celebrates the work of Massachusetts and Maine landscape architects and landscape architectural work in the two states.

The BSLA seeks to recognize excellence in the diverse practices of our members. To that end, all members are encouraged to submit their best work for review by the program jury. Winning projects demonstrated excellence and reflected the careful stewardship, wise planning, and artful design of our cultural and natural environment.

In 2015, the Award of Excellence was given to Reed Hilderbrand for their project, “Riverfront Recovery: Long Dock Park” in Beacon, NY.
