The Connecticut Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects has announced the winners of its annual Connecticut Design Awards competition. CTASLA conducts the Connecticut Design Awards each year to recognize excellence in landscape architectural design, planning and analysis, communication and research. To be eligible, an applicant must be a licensed landscape architect in the state of Connecticut, and the entrant or project location must be based in Connecticut.

"These award-winning projects showcase the various ways that landscape architects enhance the built environment and contribute to the cultural resources of our communities," said Jeff Olszewski, president of CTASLA and a landscape architect at Fuss & O'Neill, Inc. in Trumbull.

Winners of the 2011 Connecticut Design Awards competition, announced at the chapter's annual meeting in December, include Wesley Stout Associates in New Canaan, which received an honor award for Project Castlerock/Royal Bank of Scotland (Stamford).
