LAN 2015/16 Announcements

Velislava

Writer of the Year 2015-16: Velislava Valcheva

Since joining LAN on Halloween 2014, Velislava has been one of our most consistent writers, producing nearly 40 articles. She has been named Writer of the Month and Writer of the Week on several occasions. So … Writer of the Year 2015 nominee is only fitting. Some of her record-breaking pieces include How This World-Class Design Became a Great Success Story  and 10 of the Most Common Mistakes People Make in Planting Design and How to Avoid Them. She currently lives in Sofia, Bulgaria, and completed her master’s  degree in landscape architecture at the University of Forestry in 2014. Congratulations, Velislava, on a tremendous year! We look forward to your continued development and future articles in 2016!

  • Top 10 Landscape Architecture Projects of 2015 [by Erin Tharp]

The Third Annual Top 10 Projects of the Year is back, and it’s loaded with exemplary projects from four continents. This year’s nominees include the adventurous Barangaroo Headland Park in Sydney, Australia, designed by PWP Landscape Architecture, the eclectic Aalborg Waterfront II, situated in Aalborg, Denmark, by CF Møller, and the connective Crescent Park, located in New Orleans, Louisiana, by Hargreaves Associates. Public space and pedestrian-centric design were the big winners, and this trend will grow as cities continue to urbanize.

With an astounding 61,958 views (when last checked), Yuliya’s article examines a number of cities that are getting closer with their rivers. The Rhone River redevelopment project in Lyon, France, and Red Ribbon Park alongside the Tanghe River in China are just two of the exciting transformations across the world. “This list clearly shows the need to integrate rivers carefully into their future vision in order to provide the necessary and more demanded public spaces close to nature in our urban reality,” Georgieva said.
