Bigger Darby Wins 2014 ASLA Student Honor Award

The American Society of Landscape Architects granted a prestigious 2014 ASLA Student Award Honor Award to the senior studio project "Bigger Darby: A Landscape Approach for a Coherent & Resilient Watershed" and its accompanying exhibition. The spring 2014 studio, led by Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture Sarah Cowles and Visiting Lecturer Nick Glase, investigated the potential for landscape tactics (vegetation and water management among others) to structure both the development and conservation of the Big Darby Creek in Central Ohio, an 84 square mile territory governed by Big Darby Accord. The award was one of 21 presented to students from more than 500 entries representing 77 schools. Knowlton students will receive their Honor Awards at the ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver on Monday, November 24.

The Bigger Darby exhibition first appeared in the Banvard Gallery in the spring of 2014. Selections from the exhibition can be seen in the lobby of Knowlton Hall, next to the South Cut-out Garden.
