The LaGasse Medal, Landscape Architect category, recognizes individuals who have made notable contributions to the management and conservancy of natural resources and/or public lands. The recipient must be a landscape architect or hold a degree in landscape architecture and possess a minimum of ten years experience in the profession.

For the past 26 years, Steve D. Livingston, ASLA, has managed and conserved natural resources, parks, open space, and public lands in one of the most beautiful cities in the world--Charleston, South Carolina. As Director of the Department of Parks for the city, Mr. Livingston heads up a staff of 150 people who plan, design, construct, and maintain 1,200 acres of urban public facilities. He chairs Charleston’s Design Review Committee, reviewing and approving all public space and facility design. In addition to restoring and maintaining the city’s large existing park system, Mr. Livingston has led the development of several significant new projects, including the South Carolina Aquarium. The letter nominating him for this award reads “the parks and open space in the city of Charleston and the city’s approach to preservation and revitalization are an example to the entire country.”
