The North Carolina Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (NCASLA) announced the winners of the annual, state-wide professional awards for landscape architecture projects in the categories of Research, Analysis & Planning, Communication, and General Design. Auggie Wong, the NCASLA Awards Chair announced that “we are proud of award-winning projects, which speak to ecological resiliency, cultural celebration, and equity in our communities. We are also extremely pleased with the quality of the projects submitted.”

One Award of Excellence was presented to the Coastal Dynamics Design Lab at NC State University for the Twin Creeks project in the Research Category. The project team said, “If programmed appropriately as a conservation development, this property will provide a wide range of transformative, quality-of-life experiences for the residents of Creedmoor and the general public of the greater Raleigh-Durham region.”

Additionally, four Honor Awards were presented to projects throughout the state or to firms within the state, including the Cherokee Cultural Corridor Master Plan in Cherokee, NC by IBI Group; Sycamore Creek in Hurt, VA by Coastal Dynamics Design Lab at NC State University; NC Coastal Planting Template in Coastal NC by Coastal Dynamics Design Lab at NC State University; and the BB&T Leadership Institute in Greensboro, NC by Surface 678.

IBI defined in their project summary that, “the Cherokee Cultural Corridor Master Plan (CCCMP) is a detailed analysis and intimate charrette with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) to plan and strategize the growth and development of Cherokee, NC (their tribal lands). This master planning exercise is unique in that an explicit focus was put on maintaining, strengthening, and promoting the culture, history, and community of the EBCI.”
