LSG Landscape Architecture And MMD Win 2017 ASLA Design Award

Marshall Moya and LSG Landscape Architecture have been selected to receive the 2017 American Society of Landscape Architects Maryland Chapter’s Honor Award. The LSG/MMD team partnered on design for a new DC Water Tower on the St. Elizabeths Campus in Southeast, DC.

Because the new water tower will be visible across the city, the design aesthetic was critical to this project. The client, DC Water, was looking for something that was beyond a typical water tower.

In selecting the design for the award, the jury had the following comments:

“Excellent renderings. Nice to see a landscape architecturally-led initiative to soften and make opportunities from a necessary, stark, engineered, functional impediment such as a water tower. Good analysis of stormwater and bioretention. Design diagrams were very helpful in conveyed design story. Excellent landscape design that tied to water, not just in programming but how it also influenced topography and water movement on-site.”

“Cities have been defined by their skylines throughout history. Washington, D.C. is no exception,” commented Marshall Moya Design Principal Michael Marshall.  “We are honored to have won this award for our submission to DC Water’s RFP to design the mitigation screening to one of the most recent infrastructures in our city,” he added.

The design submission was titled, “A Community’s Relationship with Water:  Congress Heights.”  The award will be presented at a ceremony in April.
