ASLA Elevates Delplace, Fox and Hewitt to the Council of Fellows

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) has elevated 22 members as ASLA Fellows for their contributions to the landscape architecture profession and society at large. Lisa Delplace, ASLA of OEHME, van SWEDEN in Washington D.C.; Andrew Fox, ASLA of North Carolina State University College of Design in Raleigh, North Carolina; and Robert Hewitt, ASLA of Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina, were three of the members elevated to the Council of Fellows.
Lisa Delplace, ASLA

Delplace received her nomination in Works from the Potomac Chapter. Delplace’s experience as a Peace Corps volunteer in Kenya required rapid adaptation to new and distinct surroundings, which sharpened her awareness of cultural, social and environmental influences on people and the planet. This experience served her well as Lead Landscape Architect on complex projects in geopolitically sensitive locations such as Kabul, Afghanistan and Katmandu, Nepal. The learned lessons Delplace brought to the firm of OEHME, van SWEDEN expanded the firm’s ecological approach while placing a new emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration between designers and scientists in such projects as the Great Basin Shoreline Restoration at the Chicago Botanic Gardens and Tippet Rise Art Center at Fishtail, Montana.
Andrew Fox, ASLA

Fox received his nomination in Knowledge from the North Carolina Chapter. Among his achievements during his career, Fox received the prestigious 2016 Excellence in Teaching Award from the International Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture; established the award-winning North Carolina State Design + Build Studio; and launched his department’s inaugural “Design Week” program, an educational engagement experience in keeping with the land grant mission of North Carolina. His scholarship focuses on resilient design for coastal regions and green infrastructure, work that has had significant social outcomes for people in marginalized communities. Under his leadership the Coastal Dynamics Design Lab, which he founded, has become a national model for resilient design research and education.
Robert Hewitt, ASLA

Hewitt received his nomination in Knowledge from the Northern California Chapter. During a period of more than two decades as a Professor of Landscape Architecture at Clemson University and the Pennsylvania State University, Hewitt has gained recognition for a range of accomplishments, receiving 30 university and state, regional, national and international awards of distinction for research, scholarship, creative works, teaching and publication. He has fostered critical design thinking, guiding thousands of future professionals to a better understanding of the scope of landscape architecture, teaching more than 60 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral courses at universities on four continents. His research and practice demonstrate the potential of professional and academic practice models based on the notion of a “designer-scholar.”
