We preview the Thai Landscape Architecture Award (TALA) 2015. The Thai Association of Landscape Architects (TALA) is a group that, according to its own objectives, “aims to raise the standards of landscape architecture and to promote the fellowship of ethics and honor.” One way the association is doing this is through the TALA Awards, which are aimed at honoring the excellence of Thailand’s landscape architects with hopes of promoting the many landscape innovations within Thailand’s landscape and architectural design industries while inspiring the next generation of Thailand’s landscape architects. Each nominated project stands out for its innovation in lighting, planting design, and overall beauty and functionality in the space. Each project also represents the landscape of Thailand and aims to promote environmental responsibility and awareness to the people that use and enjoy them.
