LDA-Design with Hargreaves Associates, Arup and Atkins, the design team behind the Olympic Park, won the president’s award while the Olympic Delivery Authority scooped the Peter Youngman Award for outstanding contribution to landscape architecture.
Both awards recognised not only the special nature of the Olympic Park project but the extraordinary achievement it represented, said president Sue Illman.
"It is rare a project can attract so many superlatives and such a consensus on achievements, whilst also providing practical lessons in restoration, sustainability, regeneration and the art of the possible.
"In selecting this project for the President’s Award I salute the skill, determination and commitment of the project team in delivering the Olympic Park that inspired us all, and made the country proud."
The ODA was awarded its prize as a celebration of the "leadership, innovation, skill and dedication shown by all members of the profession involved in the planning, design and creation of the Olympic Park"
Illman said: "The Award recognises the role the project has played as the most significant demonstration of the value and importance of investment in landscape at the heart of high quality public open space.
