Congratulations to Mikyoung! She is the 2018 ASLA Design Medal recipient.
One of the highest honors the American Society of Landscape Architects can bestow upon a landscape architect, the ASLA Design Medal recognizes an individual “who has produced a body of exceptional design work at a sustained level for at least ten years.”
Sarah Goldhagen, an amazing thought leader in the profession said: “Mikyoung shows that landscape design and environmental art can be a public amenity, a social condenser, and a sustainable practice while simultaneously being a poetic art that captures and sustains our all-too-often-distracted attention, confers a graceful sense of play, and instigates deep imaginative thought about the many ways that every day landscapes can enrich people’s individual experience and social congress.”
Sincere gratitude to all of friends and colleagues for the nominations, especially Thaisa Way for leading the nomination process. Nominations can be read:
