Design Awards

Professional Design Awards

The INASLA Professional Awards Program was created to recognize professional excellence and outstanding examples of landscape architecture by Indiana landscape architects. These awards honor works that represent the forefront of the profession of Landscape Architecture and embody high levels of creativity and imagination. Any individual, firm, agency or institution is eligible to submit a project for consideration provided that:

Projects submitted may be located outside of Indiana, but there must have been project involvement by a member in good standing of the Indiana Chapter of ASLA.

The four categories are: Constructed Projects, Unbuilt Works, Residential Works and the INPAWS Award (Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society). In addition to the traditional Honor and Merit Awards, the jury may also select an ‘Award of Excellence’ for the single most outstanding submission (of the combined collection of ‘Constructed’, ‘Unbuilt’ and ‘Residential’.)  The ‘Constructed Works’, ‘Unbuilt Works’ and ‘Residential Works’ submissionsf are reviewed and judged by an independent jury made up of ASLA members from another state chapter.   INPAWS members review and judge the entries in the INPAWS category.

Claire Bennett Legacy Award

About

In 2003, INASLA unveiled the initial “Claire Bennett Legacy Award” to recognize individual achievement, service and knowledge to the profession and the Indiana Chapter. The award honors long-time Indiana Chapter Member Claire Bennett, FASLA. Claire served as the president of the Indiana Chapter in 1978 and as the National President of ASLA in 1990-91. The legacy of service she has provided for the Indiana Chapter, as well as the leadership to ASLA on a national level inspired the creation of this award named in her honor to recognize those members who embody those same ideals.

Legacy Award Critera

ASLA members who have maintained full membership in the Society for the last ten years may be nominated for the Claire Bennett Legacy Award. The selected award recipient(s) are selected in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the profession by excellence in administrative work in public agencies, in direct service to the Society and/or profession, in executed works of Landscape Architecture, or in professional school instruction or in professional writing.
