Nominations sparked
every emotion

ARDUOUS AND UNNATURAL, as is
seemingly everything else done remotely
this past year, this jury experience was not.
Five jurors comfortable in five individually
curated seats, channelling local, national
and international perspectives directly
from four Canadian time zones, discussed
virtually every facet of the profession,
courtesy of 72 fabulous nominations.

The jury process now over, we are left with
a very real, nothing-virtual-about-it, sense
of deep satisfaction about the state of
landscape architecture in Canada. During
our sessions and through our discussions,
we witnessed the degree of awareness
possessed by landscape architects for the
pressing issues of today, and the creativity
of response that is acheivable. We saw
evidence of a profound commitment to
building a viable and livable world, in which
indidivuals, communities and cultures can
thrive. We are fortunate to belong to a
profession in which actions are grounded
in solid traditions as well as in a sense of
forward-looking purpose. We see how the
CSLA Awards are essential as a vehicle to
cultivate our collective savoir faire.
Nominations sparked every emotion
around the virtual jurors' table, and ran the
gamut of scope and subject. Each excellent
in its own right, the projects included:
* decades-long looks at landscapes and
individuals;
* sizes from postage-stamp to hectares;
* future vision to historic reflection;
* complex to singular focus;
* leadership from every sector;
* modest to flamboyant;
* artistic to functional and every variation
in between.
ENGAGEMENT + DIVERSITY KEY
Each project is a reflection of the people
within and of the surrounding locality,
reflecting our profession as we blur our
professional categories and boundaries.
This calls for a new way of categorizing
and observing our landscapes as well as
buildings and built spaces, processes and
virtualities, lived and imagined spaces,
and beyond. With that in mind and in an
attempt to depict the jury's discussions,
several keywords resonate: Biodiversity,
