GROUND UP, the student journal for the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning at the College of Environmental Design, was recently awarded an American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) Communications Honor Award for its eight annual issue, Home. This is GROUND UP’s third Student ASLA Honor Award in the Communications category: The journal also won for its second edition, Issue 02: Grit, in 2013 and Issue 05: Delineations, in 2016.
The projects and essays in Issue 08 expand upon and complicate the word "home" — from the house to the territory, from the gut to the cosmos, through time, across scales, transcending place and space. Home resists fixed definitions.
The articles featured in Issue 08 also reflect the concerns and interests of our student team—from planning to architecture, politics to landscape, archives to art. Content was selected, coordinated, edited, and curated by a group of 20 graduate students of landscape architecture and environmental planning. Students worked with authors with shared interests, developing a graphic vision and textual clarity for each piece, and integrating it into the voice of the journal as a whole.
