1,700 tonne moraine bluff - a magnificent
scramble of granite boulders that beg to
be climbed. "It's just another reason why
the Toronto waterfront is so cool," said
one of my fellow jurors. And clearly, the
boulder-climbing is a great feature and city
kids agreed! Maybe it will attract another
generation, and get them hooked on
landscape architecture.

UNE HISTOIRE
EN_
SINCE SERVING AS PRESIDENT of ASLA,
I have had the good fortune to develop
a wealth of friendships with members
of the CSLA. When I was asked to serve
as the external juror for the Awards of
Excellence, I jumped at the opportunity.
Not only would I be able to review the work
of CSLA members, but I would also be
able to visit one of the great winter cities.
In both cases, I wasn't disappointed.

THE TRUE NORTH
From my first review of the projects, what
stood out for me - a Connecticut native
born and bred - was the diversity of the
project landscapes, ranging from highly
urban areas to very remote communities
on the tundra. The landscape of Kinngaaluk
for example, was totally foreign to me,
and the Kinngaaluk Territorial Park Master
86 LANDSCAPES PAYSAGES

plan spoke volumes about how landscape
architects are helping the Inuit community
manage its harvesting in a way that
sustains both northern peoples and their
environment. In a very different landscape,
that of Upper Fort Gary Provincial Park,
we studied the transformation of a few
hectares which for over a century had
been lost amid Winnipeg's urban sprawl.
Working with only one small historic
structure on an extremely challenging
site, the landscape architects confronted
the conflict inherent in the historic
records and - indeed - the conflict in the
community, to develop an interpretation
that has a modern and even artistic flair.
A LOVE OF LANDSCAPE
Many other submissions testified to
the importance of our profession to
communities, and had gripping stories to
tell, making the adjudication challenging. At
Trillium Park on the shores of Lake Ontario,
for example, the designers chose to build a

AN INTENSE PROCESS
As we analyzed each project, we paused
regularly to review the category criteria
to reinforce that we were judging each
submission on a level playing field. Did
the Planning and Analysis projects in fact
show us the analysis which backed up the
planning? Had the submitters addressed the
criteria carefully? Did the story-tellers supply
the necessary information to orient and
engage jurors unfamiliar with the project:
labels and dimensions on plans and sections,
for example, and graphics that were clear and
appealing? A little eye candy goes a long way.
The Jury agreed that many submissions were
premature. To truly represent the power
of a design, the plantings must, at least,
exhibit their promise. Worse, for a profession
built around plantings, many designs
lacked biodiversity. And where were the
people in the photographs? Our profession
above all creates places for people, yet too
often, there were no people to be seen.
Nonetheless, we did review some wonderful
images, like the boulder-climbing youths on
this page, or the little girl in Surrey Bend,
shimmying up one of the totemic poles in
the landscape. (See page 6.)
Quibbles aside, as we sorted through many
beautifully conceived and brilliantly realized
projects, we came back to one fundamental
question: how does this project advance the
profession on a national basis? How does it
push the envelope?
I think speaking for us all, we relished the
process. I have been part of several design
juries, and you rarely meet your fellow
jurors. During the intense CSLA adjudication
process, however, you develop a deep
appreciation for those who serve with
you. I'm happy to say I have a new set of
CSLA friends.
