  • December 2, 2016

    Congratulations to Landscape Architecture students Edward Lannom and William Hodges for the Best Poster Award at the UK Sustainability Forum! Their work was a conceptual design based on their project “Retrofitting the Retro: Southland Drive” – a project that LA 425 students have worked on over the course of the fall 2016 semester. Their poster was assessed based on the logic of the presentation layout and problem to be addressed, visual appeal, whether it invokes or informs a response, and the presenter’s ability to convey their work.
