Sharon Danks’s groundbreaking book Asphalt to Ecosystems: Design Ideas for Schoolyard Transformation continues to draw praise and acclaim! Asphalt to Ecosystems has recently been honored by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) with a Professional Award in the Communications Category. The awards honor the top landscape architecture designs and projects from across the US and around the world. The ASLA Awards especially consider projects on environmental sensitivity and sustainability.
When first published, Asphalt to Ecosystems was hailed as an “extraordinary guide” and a “new benchmark of design for educating a new eco-literate generation.” This prestigious new award recognizes Asphalt to Ecosystems’s technical achievement as well. The ASLA 2012 Professional Awards Jury pronounced it “the most comprehensive and usable book. It’s got great ideas that people can actually translate into practice.”
