The Landscape Architecture Firm Award  recognizes landscape architecture firms that have produced bodies of distinguished work influencing the professional practice of landscape architecture for a period of at least ten years.

For 41 years, Wallace Roberts & Todd (WRT ) landscape architects, architects, urban designers, and planners have worked collaboratively on projects for both public and private sector clients. Beginning in 1963 with Ian McHarg, FASLA, and William H. Roberts, FASLA, two of the firm’s founding principals, and through a new generation of landscape architect principals, WRT has maintained a position of international prominence in the advocacy and practice of environmentally responsible design. Over the years, WRT has won 132 awards for planning and design excellence from many different organizations, government agencies, and institutions. Today, the firm has offices in Philadelphia, Lake Placid, Coral Gables, Dallas, San Diego, and San Francisco.

The firm has always maintained a strong ethic of advocacy for the profession, stating “Landscape architecture at WRT has always been approached as part of a larger continuum of environmental planning and design. Meaningful collaboration has enabled many of the principles and practices of landscape architecture to expand and influence other disciplines, and by so doing, broaden its reach and impact.”
