University of Dayton, Central Mall wins Virginia ASLA Honor Award
The recently completed Central Mall project at the University of Dayton was awarded an Honor Award by the Virginia Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects this week. The awards program recognizes excellence, exemplary performance, and significant contributions by the landscape architecture profession within the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The Central Mall project, completed by the Van Yahres Studio at BCWH, involved solving the site’s programmatic and technical issues while creating a memorable center for the campus. The solution is both crossroads and gathering space – a 500-foot, terraced lawn bordered by trees and seat walls, with a plaza and fountain at one end, an amphitheater at the other and an innovative bio-retention garden along one edge.
