His prolific writings include scores of peer-reviewed and invited papers globally and chapters in scholarly publications. He served on the UGA Press editorial board, helped develop a new landscape design book series and currently edits Critical Perspectives in the History of Environmental Design, and co-edits Landscape Journal. His academic career encompasses more than 30 separate courses, 4,000 students, 25 master's thesis committees and four PhD committees. # 28697 D a v i d M e y e r G r e g o r y M i l l e r Morrow Reardon Wilkinson Miller Ltd., Albuquerque During his service as the New Mexico chapter trustee, on the membership and emerging professionals committees, and as vice president, Gregory Miller restructured the ASLA membership services programs, developed and instituted a decade-long program to bolster recruitment and retention, and dramatically enhanced the tangible benefits that membership affords practitioners, emerging professionals and educators. In short, his way to strengthen landscape architecture and its professional society was to strengthen every ASLA member. # 28696 A l a n M c K n i g h t Columbus Recreation and Parks Department (Retired), Columbus, Ohio Alan McKnight was the first landscape architect to serve as director of the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department. Through times of economic expansion and the Great Recession, McKnight led a staff of 350 in the creation of new parks and greenways and maintained a system of 240 parks, 15,000 acres of real estate, 29 community centers, seven swimming pools, scores of athletic facilities, 90 miles of multiuse trails and six golf courses. He commissions landscape architects as the prime design consultants on major urban multidisciplinary park projects. The highly regarded, 20-year transformation of the downtown Columbus riverfront is now complete, and the effort has been led entirely by landscape architects. # 28694 Meyer + Silberberg, Berkeley Winner of the Rome Prize in Landscape Architecture in 2000, David Meyer has distinguished himself through his rigorous approach to design and execution. To Meyer, the most evocative, powerful spaces are characterized by purity, simplicity and restraint. They have visual order and make sense to the eye and the intellect. He credits his Iowa origins for this appreciation of strong, simple, sensual designs that employ nature's palette. He has brought his signature integrity and rigor to projects ranging from a temporary installation at the American Academy in Rome to a 9,000-acre national park in China. # 28695 Category: Works K i m M a t h e w s Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, New York City Kim Mathews is consistently recognized for both her planning and constructed work with institutional and public realm clients.

She promotes ecological function and develops solutions imbued with an authentic sense of each unique place. She works well with multi-year schedules and chronic funding challenges, and clients and communities value her dedication, enthusiasm, design ethic and ability to negotiate complex endeavors. Her most significant achievements are the result of long-lasting relationships with clients who appreciate her ability to address historic and cultural landscapes, especially in ecologically challenging settings. # 28693 (Continued on page 28)
