Jaysen Ariola was honoured by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) with a 2018 Student Honor Award in the Analysis and Planning Category for his work “Waters in Peril: Collective Measures for a Dying Lake Winnipeg.”
The project illustrated how landscape architecture, planning and policy making can help mitigate effects of nutrient loading in Lake Winnipeg. Jaysen’s graduate and thesis work on this project focused on the Red River Drainage Basin, as nearly half of the lake’s incoming phosphorus and nitrogen come through the agricultural lands around the River. This project has also won the John E. (Jack) Irving Prize this year from the Irving Family.
Jaysen is an urban designer at Dillon. He also has a background in landscape architecture and ecological planning.
