MLA Alumni Win Michigan ASLA Awards
Chuyi Yin and Chet Hill, graduates of the Master of Landscape Architecture Program, were recognized with awards from the Michigan Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA).
Yin, MLA/MS ’20, won the Student Honor Award for her SEAS project, “Pebbles Along the Creek: Restoration and Design for Saginaw Forest Eco-Lab,” which focused on transforming Saginaw Forest, an institutional property, into an eco-lab for education, research, and outreach. This is the second consecutive year that Yin received the Michigan ALSA Student Honor Award; in 2019, she was recognized for another SEAS project, “CONFLUENCE: Design and Innovation for the Resilient Campus.” Yin is a landscape designer at Coen+Partners in Minneapolis.
Hill, MLA ’89, was recognized as a Michigan ASLA distinguished member. A principal at Johnson Hill Land Ethics Studio in Ann Arbor, his expertise spans the areas of park and recreation planning, streetscape design, trail planning and design, public workshop facilitation, community revitalization, urban design, and campus planning. Hill is a longtime adjunct professor of landscape architecture at SEAS.
