Congratulations to Two Award-Winning Projects

May was a big month for some well-deserved recognition for projects we’ve had the honour of working on. First up: The Leaf at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg was recognized with a National Award of Excellence from the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects. Our team worked with Assiniboine Park from 2015-2023 to help plan The Leaf, a new horticultural attraction in Winnipeg. We developed the Visitor Experience Plan, a cohesive narrative that ties all elements of the gardens together and helped guide design and implementation. Learn more

We were also thrilled to learn that Misko-Aki: Confluence of Cultures was made a recipient of the nationally prestigious Canadian Museums Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Exhibitions. In 2020, we were invited by Tim Johnson to join a team to develop the exhibit, with extensive consultation and collaboration with the seven Indigenous Nations connected to the Muskoka region.

Congratulations to everyone involved!
