His acclaimed projects include Harvard University’s Tanner Fountain, Cambridge, MA (the first institutional project in the “Landscape as Art” movement); the Nasher Sculpture Garden, Dallas, TX; and the National 9/11 Memorial, New York, NY, which won the American Society of Landscape Architects Honor Award in the General Design category in 2012. His personal awards are numerous and include Harvard’s Centennial Medal, the University of Virginia’s Thomas Jefferson Medal, the ASLA Design Medal, and the IFLA Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe Gold Medal.
