“The world is beginning to pay attention to the important work champions of this industry are doing,” said Landscape Institute President Jane Findlay. “The awards this year combat issues that have arisen from the pandemic, such as vacant buildings and mental wellbeing. Nearly every project also includes some form of rewilding, which we so desperately need to address the current biodiversity crisis. These projects should be used as shining examples of what should be common practice across all landscape projects moving forward.”
