Our Landscape Designer, Chelsea Mills, was awarded third prize in the Fanshawe School of Design’s Canada 150 TD Environmental Design Competition, along with her 5 teammates.
Sixteen teams qualified to present their designs and suggestions for one of three different sites. Chelsea presented for her team, The UrbanWalkers Group, who redesigned Victoria Park and Reginald Cooper Square in London, Ontario.
The general design objectives set forth in the competition were to:
- Build vibrant and healthy communities with the broadest possible engagement of all Canadians
- Inspire a deeper understanding about people, places and events that shape our communities and our country
- Encourage participation in community initiatives, activities and events to mark Canada’s 150th Birthday.
These objectives would lead to outcomes including increased Belonging, Inclusion, Reconciliation and Connection.
Teams came from Fanshawe College, University of Guelph and Dalhousie University. Chelsea Mills is a Landscape Design Student at Fanshawe College, and one of the Adjudicators highlighted the presentation done by Chelsea and her teammate.
