ASLA Washington Chapter Profile: The Washington Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) is the professional society that represents the landscape architecture profession in Washington State. Our mission as a landscape architecture organization is to lead, to educate, and to participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning and artful design of our cultural and natural environments. September 21, 2018 marked the 13th annual Park(ing) Day. Several chapters of the ASLA ventured outside to transform a metered parking place into a tiny parklet. Groups posted pictures of their parks on social media using the hash tags, #ParkingDay2018 and #aslapd18. Several different parks with unique themes could be seen in parking spots around the country. Many ASLA chapters celebrated the event with games, activities and food at the sites of their parks. The Washington Chapter of the ASLA held an awards ceremony the evening after the events of Park(ing) Day, distributing honors for the best tiny parks in the Seattle area. The awards given include: • The Pavement Upcycle Award, which recognized the most creative use of space. This award went to "Belltown Unicorn Zoo" by Form/ Space Atelier. • The Collective Effervescence Award, which honored the park that was most connected to the community. This award was given to "Kelp Us Sea It Through" by Mithun. • The TRUST Award, which went to the parklet with the most interactive programming that engaged passersby in activities, discussion, and/or educational opportunities that are designed for TRUST (the theme of this year's Seattle Design Festival). This honor was awarded to "SEA- Saw" by VIA, but was awarded to the runner up, as VIA was not present at the ceremony. All award winners were decided based on votes from members of the WASLA. c Above: (from left) Jonathan Bronk, Chapter President, Jules West, Saige Henkel, Cameron Braatz, Brandi Backus Right: (from left) Jonathan Bronk, Chapter President, Adam Scott, Rachel Nicolaison Above: In addition to honoring their peers, attendees of the ceremony ate, drank and connected with each other, celebrating an event that promotes an appreciation for parks and the work of landscape architects.
