2009 National ASLA Awards Program – one Honor Award for The Dell at the University of Virginia. "Brava! In an era of environmental clichés, this project is truly original. We love the context of its location at one of the best landscape architecture schools in the world. The geometry and curvature make it romantic and rich. It works well in all four seasons. When you’re in college, you’re looking for these kinds of places." — 2009 Professional Awards Jury
