Congratulations to OJB Landscape Architecture, which received the 2017 ASLA Professional Awards “Award of Excellence” in the general design category for the creation of the Klyde Warren Park Project.

The park serves as Dallas’s central urban park and reconnects the city’s downtown cultural district with the neighborhoods to the north. It features a flexible, pedestrian-oriented design, with a children’s park, great lawn, restaurant, performance pavilion, fountain plaza, games area, dog park, and botanical garden. You can read more about the project here.

You may recall reading our case study about how OJB used Vectorworks Landmark to design the Park at Lakeshore East in Chicago in 2013. This high-density residential community in the heart of downtown Chicago features a six-acre park that functions as the neighborhood’s core.  

The ASLA Professional Awards identify the best of landscape architecture in general design, analysis and planning, communications, research, and residential design categories from the United States and around the world.

Typical entries for the general design category include public, institutional, or private landscapes of all kinds (except residential). The jury considered the quality of design and execution, design context, environmental sensitivity and sustainability, and design value to the client to other designers.
