GGMLA will be the highest honor bestowed by the CSLA, and awarded every two years. The medal is meant for exceptional landscape architects whose lifetime achievements and contributions to the profession have had a unique and lasting impact on Canadian society. The only other requirement is the landscape architect must be a member of CSLA. Current CSLA board members are ineligible, and a landscape architect may only receive the GGMLA once in his or her lifetime. Nomination deadline will be announced this fall. For more information, or to download the nomination guidelines and submission form, please visit www.csla-aapc.ca/ awards/ggmla. Sherbourne Common by PFS Studio (Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg) of Vancouver, was recipient of a 2012 CSLA honor award in design.
