We are proud to announce that the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) has recognized Sasaki with the Award of Excellence for our Midtown Detroit TechTown District project in the category of Analysis and Planning. This is the highest honor bestowed by ASLA in this category—an incredible celebration of the work put into this great project.
"We are deeply honored to receive this recognition," says Dennis Pieprz, urban design principal on the project. "We worked with a remarkable client and team to develop a vision and strategy to capture the energy and potential of TechTown as a new innovation district in the city."
TechTown reimagines the district for the future, emphasizing technology and entrepreneurship as drivers for new economic development. The awards jury commented that "this is a fresh, vibrant plan that highlights community pride and engagement, while advancing ideas about how the landscape can be used as a collaborative outdoor space, which is unique."
