Institute adds to award categories

Master planning and heritage to be acknowledged

The Landscape Institute (LI) is adding new categories to its annual awards to better reflect the “changing face” of the profession. The new categories are: urban design and master planning, which demonstrates the growing role of the landscape architect in the urban environment; and heritage and conservation, which is becoming increasingly important as historic landscapes benefit from greater government support. LI president Nigel Thorne said: “It’s vital to have a flexible approach to the awards — to set them in stone would be to deny the dynamism of the profession in meeting the demands of the modern world to address issues such as the environment, the ever-increasing role of the city and our love of the countryside.” The design section of the awards has been improved so that there are three separate categories for entrants to consider according to the size of their project.
