ASLANY 2012 Awards
The 2012 Design Awards were presented in a well-attended ceremony at The Hort that also marked the opening of the exhibition featuring the projects. Ten Honor Awards and 13 Merit Awards were presented to 16 firms, with three firms receiving multiple awards.

The firms competed in five categories: Landscape Architecture Design; Small Landscape Project Under $50,000; Collaborative Design (for projects involving landscape architects and allied professionals); Planning, Analysis, Research and Communications; and Un-Built Projects. The competition was juried by the Illinois chapter, and the exhibition curated by The Hort’s Chris Murtha. James Russell, Bloomberg architecture critic, presented the certificates.
