Acadia Point, a prominent headland visible from the neighbouring harbour and surrounding water, is now the summer retreat of an urban couple. When the owners asked Virginia Burt to restore the damaged site, and to integrate the rootless house to its environment of rock and spruce, Burt set out to address the raw and emotive quality of the landscape, and inspire a rediscovery and sense of place. "To ensure a slow, immersive experience of the site," she explains, "a carefully orchestrated entry sequence references Japanese principles of miegakure ("hide and reveal"). A long gravel road winds through mossy forest, with views of surrounding waters intentionally obscured. Walking toward the house along a heavily planted and deliberately narrow path, ocean sounds and smells tantalize. At the top of the front steps, the breezeway opens onto a stunning panorama of sea, rocks, and windswept spruce, the unexpected "reveal" reached."

Paine, who retired as LACF President in May, noted in particular LACF's remarkable scope. Over the years, "LACF had awarded 111 grants, scholarships and bursaries that total over $420,000," she said. For the full story, visit the LACF web site! lacf.ca. This year's grant recipients, Paine added, "reflect the expanding role landscapes play in providing social, cultural, ecological and economic benefits to society." The largest annual grant ($5000) was awarded to Jean Trottier, CSLA, MCIP and Drew Wensley, CEO, Moriyama & Teshima Planners, who will comprehensively document the landscape infrastructure of Wadi Hanifah, the project which won the 2010 Aga Khan Award for "eloquently [demonstrating] an alternative ecological way of urban development." Some seven other projects deal with subjects as diverse as soil recovery after resource extraction, to the mapping of urban hot spots, to a new web-based portfolio of Canadian landscapes. Documentation of each grant is accessible online. Paine notes that "the impact of these grants is multiplied by the requirement that each of the proponents share the results." In this issue of LP, we tell the stories of some past successes.
