CAPLA Staff and Students Honored in National Challenge

A team of CAPLA staff and students were honored at the recent national meeting of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) in Boston for their documentation of the landscape of Tucson’s gracious and historic Arizona Inn.  The Inn was the achievement of Isabella Greenway, Arizona’s first – and, at that time, only – Representative to Congress.  Each year the Historic American Landscapes Survey issues a documentation challenge based on a specific theme, and this year’s theme was landscapes of women.

The Historic American Landscapes Survey – a partnership formed by the National Park Service, the Library of Congress and the American Society of Landscape Architects – encourages volunteers to record significant American landscapes to provide information to the public through the Library of Congress.  CAPLA staff members Gina Chorover, Helen Erickson and Jennifer Levstik joined forces with Heritage Conservation students Jae Anderson, Crystal Cheek and Ryan Sasso to complete this year’s winning entry, which placed second among thirty submissions from around the country.
