A group of students in Cornell’s landscape architecture program have been honored by the American Society of Landscape Architects for their design for the grounds surrounding a solar house. The students received a 2006 ASLA Award of Honor in the residential design category for the project, which was part of Cornell’s entry in the nationwide Solar Decathlon competition in 2005. The student-designed, student-built solar home took second place, and a new group of students from several Cornell departments are at work on an entry for the 2007 competition.
Students receiving the ASLA award were Natalie Bower, Linda Ciesielski, Alison Endl, Ted Haffner, Marc Miller, Jessy Schultz, and Carrie Van Valkenberg. Landscape faculty advisors were Peter Trowbridge and Adit Pal.
