Qualities that may be recognized include demonstrated leadership, design excellence, fluency with clients, and service to the profession. Nominees must be Emerging Professional members of ASLA Oregon.


Lord and Schryver Award

In 1929, Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver made history when they founded the first woman-owned landscape architecture firm in the Pacific Northwest. During their 40 years of professional practice, they designed over 250 residential, civic and institutional sites from their home office, Gaiety Hollow, in Salem, Oregon. In addition, they were instrumental in encouraging local nurseries to grow East Coast plant varieties, influencing plant palettes for decades to follow.

In recognition of Lord and Schryver’s legacy as women pioneers in the emerging field of landscape architecture, Oregon ASLA has established this award to honor a woman, a firm or an organization that had made significant contributions to the achievement and recognition of women in landscape architecture. Contributions that may be recognized include: professional excellence, mentoring women, recruiting, retaining and advancing women, and service to the profession.


The deadline for Recognition Award submissions is Friday, September 20, 2019 by 5:00pm.

Recognition Award winners will be selected by the ASLA Oregon Executive Committee and notified prior to the annual soirée.
