At the Boston Society of Landscape Architects’ Design Awards Gala on May 11, 2023, we celebrated the 2023 BSLA design award winners, including Sarasota’s The Bay, which won a merit award in general design.
The Jury said this about Sarasota’s The Bay: “The jury found the project offers a great place-making with a mix of programs for different ages and sizes of groups. The experience of moving through the mangrove and the preserved large tree is mesmerizing. The integration of ecological elements is particularly impressive, with the incorporation of low-tech methods and the restoration of mangroves showcasing a commitment to sustainability.”
Congratulations to Sarasota’s The Bay team! The Bay is a partnership between The Bay Park Conservancy, The City of Sarasota, Jon F. Swift Construction, DreamLarge, owner’s representative Jenn Stutler, and the Agency team, including: Sweet Sparkman Architecture and Interiors, Kimley-Horn, Sasaki, HLB Lighting, Studio Ummo, Engineering Matrix, Moffatt & Nichol, Cummins Cederberg, HR&A Advisors, Monstrum, and Zaragunda. Special pop-up elements brought to the waterfront thanks to Dix.Hite and The Urban Conga.
