Graduating Landscape Student Awards – Landscape Institute Scotland and Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture

The Landscape Institute Scotland were privileged to review the work of graduating students from ESALA in July 2020 and have worked closely with the School to award these annual prizes to students in three categories as well as a new Finalist category. The aim of the awards are to foster and recognise talent as well as create strong links between the school, graduating students and their professional institute.

The LIS are acutely aware of how difficult it has been for students completing their final year with the restrictions placed by Covid and the uncertainty being faced for the future. So this year we are extremely pleased to celebrate the students  ward winning work further through Architecture and Design Scotland as part of the Scottish Architecture Student Awards showcase of the Royal Incorporation of Architects Scotland online Convention in October 2020.

This year we are delighted to announce that the judges have awarded the following:
