Portland Japanese Garden has been recognized by the National American Society of Landscape Architects (@nationalasla) with the 2020 Award of Excellence in General Design for the Cultural Crossing Project. This is the highest honor of ASLA’s professional design awards program, and the winning projects represent the best in landscape architecture from around the globe.
The Cultural Crossing Project’s landscape architects, Walker Macy, and Portland Japanese Garden Garden Curator, Sadafumi Uchiyama, worked together within a highly collaborative, multicultural, and multiskilled team that included Kengo Kuma Associates, Hacker Architects, KPFF, Hoffman Construction, and a team of skilled landscape and gardening craftspeople. The Award of Excellence recognizes the project’s beautifully executed details; the team’s cohesive, place-based and landscape-led design approach; the interweaving of design excellence and technical problem-solving; and the team’s articulate balance between traditional Japanese and contemporary design and construction methodologies.
