The Riverline Wins ASLA-NY Honor Award

We are honored and proud to share that The Riverline in Buffalo, NY, designed by W and Hood Design Studio, won an ASLA-NY Honor Award! The ASLA-NY chapter noted that this year’s winning submissions “clearly reflect the dedication of landscape architects to creating resilient, ecologically sensitive and forward-thinking environments.” Read the press release from ASLA-NY here.

The Riverline proposes the transformation of the abandoned site of the former DL&W rail corridor into a verdant refuge which opens the successional landscape to the public. The Riverline functions at a neighborhood and city-wide scale, connecting people to nature, water, art and each other. Green Shield Ecology was an integral part of the design process, evaluating the existing ecology and in determining an approach to the future ecosystem of the corridor.

The jury called this “a remarkable project that considers the multiple layers of community gatherings, habitats, indigenous and industrial heritage, connectivity (beyond the site), and accessibility.”

Thanks to the Western New York Land Conservancy for your collaboration and congratulations to all of the winners!
