Nate Burgess Receives CELA Outstanding Paper Award

At the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA) 2014 conference, Associate Nate Burgess was recognized along with three collaborators from the University of Virginia for submitting the “Outstanding Paper” to CELA’s new peer-reviewed journal, Landscape Research Record.  Their 2013 paper New Beach Designs as Urban Adaptation to Sea Level Rise,” explored the possibility of replacing traditional beach nourishment in Virginia Beach, VA, with a large-scale feeder beach like the Dutch Zandmotor.  This research also was featured in a recent article in Landscape Architecture magazine.
