Each year the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) awards professional awards to the year's best residential landscape designs. We have the winners from this year's competition, from a brilliantly reimagined former rock quarry (above) in Connecticut to a home in Mexico with spectacular outdoor rooms.
ASLA Award Winner Malinalco Private Residence by Mario Schjetnan, FASLA / Grupo De Diseño Urbano, S. C., Mexico City
The open areas surrounding this Malinalco private residence are a sequence of transitional gardens, terraces, and outdoor rooms. The different ambiences, combined with the endemic vegetation and presence of running water along the paths, provoke reflection and contemplation of the landscape.
