Award Winning Work

Heritage Flume 

ASLA Award of Excellence

A beautiful iconic art piece emerges from the preserved woodland.

 

I had the opportunity to photograph the site in the summer of 2017 after it had been implemented over 8 years ago. Two years after taking these shots, I lead a team at STIMSON to submit the project to 2019 ASLA professional awards. I knew I needed to tell the story that I saw when I visited the Flume the first time. The project is modest. The photos highlight the story of landscape architecture is about creating art in the landscape while preserving its surrounding landscape elements. 

Pulaski Park

ASLA Honor Award and BSLA Honor Award

A park for everyone.

 

This project holds dear to my heart. I worked as a designer from Design Development through Construction Document phases. There were countless hours of making changes and sleepless nights behind the scene. The moment I arrived on site a year after completion, I was in tears with the camera in my hands. I knew every detail of the project. I understood solar orientation and I knew exactly where I needed to be during the best lighting of the day. 

 

The site is now an iconic destination for many in Northampton, MA. The amount of people using, loving and protecting the park makes me feel accomplished as a designer and photographer. This is a beautiful memory that I am glad to have captured and I cannot wait to see the project grows over time.
