Two WASLA Professional Awards for Portico Projects

May 06, 2014

We are excited to announce that two of our recent projects received 2014 Professional Awards from the Washington Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects.

The upcoming Journey to Churchill exhibit at Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg received a Merit Award in the Works in Progress category.  The Jury commented: “This work in progress shows promise to be both an immersive education and a genuinely altering landscape experience.”

The American Trail at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park in Washington, DC also received a Special Mention Award in General Design.  The Jury called the project “An artful translation of a West Coast habitat into an East Coast environment that’s worthy of recognition along with the close attention to details embedded in the exhibit hardscape.”

Both project teams are thrilled to be a part of these exceptional exhibits!
