Movers & spacers: Winning landscape architects champion smart, fun public areas

Hapa is on the front page of the Arts and Life section of The Vancouver Sun this weekend.  The article highlights our project at Main and 18th in Vancouver, which received a 2014 Award of Excellence from the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects.  Mid Main was one of only two projects from BC to win an award this year, the other by Richard Findlay also featured in the article.  We are very happy to share the accolades with Joe McLeod and Tiina Mack at the Vancouver Park Board, who shepherded the project to completion.

Mid Main has also been recently added to a couple blogs, ASLA Dirt and Landezine, featuring the excellent photography of Kristopher Grunert.
