The successes of Kenneth Seamon's firm are testament to his leadership, integrity and quest for excellence, with the best interests of the community and environment at heart. The firm combines landscape architecture and civil engineering, with landscape architecture taking the lead to develop a holistic approach to master planning, design and construction. One result of this approach has been landscape architects who are aware of the issues of stormwater and infrastructure management and civil engineers who are sensitive to the environment and the overall sense of place. A strong supporter of ASLA, his firm has produced three chapter presidents, a chapter trustee and a national vice president. # 28702 T o d d R i c h a r d s o n E l i z a b e t h S a r g e n t Liz Sargent HLA, Charlottesville, Va Elizabeth Sargent has a background in botany, American history and landscape architecture. She has been a steward to America's most important places, including nine of America's 22 World Heritage Sites, 33 National Historic Landmark properties and more than 50 National Parks, shaping places as diverse as Mount Vernon, the Everglades, the Salk Institute and Valley Forge. She is adept at capturing the essence of landscapes and important features in ways that make sense to interdisciplinary teams. The view she articulates is that landscapes are shaped over time by the intersection of natural systems and human intervention. # 28701 T i m o t h y P e t e r s o n SWA Group, Houston Timothy Peterson's work has garnered dozens of design awards from ASLA, the American Planning Association and the American Institute of Architects, improving the quality of life in the Houston region with open civic space, such as Buffalo Bayou Park and Hermann Park Reflection Pool. His strength lies in translating innovative design ideas and carry them through design documentation, while working alongside contractors to realize the design's fullest built potential. His command of design, technical, cost, and project management issues for large-scale urban design and landscape projects is unmatched. Through his expertise in landscape architecture, construction and project realization, he guides designs from inception on with a focus on ensuring a beautifully crafted project that is buildable and on budget. # 28699 Richardson & Associates, Saco, Maine Todd Richardson's work spans the spectrum of project types and geographic locations with a balance of private, nonprofit and public projects. His influence as a designer is wide and lasting. He produces exceptional work that reflects how places connect us to each other, to ourselves and to the landscape. The essence of his work is about the far-reaching possibilities held in these connections. His urban and naturalistic built work is beautiful and well-grounded with an indigenous quality. Materials used in deceptively simple ways appear to have always belonged where they are, and with timeless quality. # 28700 Category: Works H a r r i e t P a t t i s o n Harriet Pattison Landscape Architect (Retired), Newtown Square, Pa. Harriet Pattison received her nomination from the Council of Fellows Executive Committee. She has been a principal collaborator with America's most distinguished architects on projects considered international icons that demonstrate the precise integration of landscape and 20th century Modernist architecture. This includes her insightful direction with Louis Kahn on the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in New York City. In these and her many other masterful works, including the Hershey Company's international headquarters and working with Peter Bohlin on the governor's mansion garden in Harrisburg, Pa., her designs evoke the complex, meticulous detail that blends buildings and their landscapes. # 28698 (Continued from page 26) (Continued on page 30)
