Segal Shuart is proud to announce that the Echo Park Lake Rehabilitation Project was awarded a Preservation Design Award by the California Preservation Foundation. The California Preservation Foundation celebrates and recognizes exemplary work in historic preservation, restoration, rehabilitation, sustainability, studies, reports and other significant categories in the preservation field through the Preservation Design Awards.
The Echo Park Lake Rehabilitation Project was among 24 projects throughout the state to be honored on September 26, 2014 at the Cicada Club in Downtown Los Angeles. Both Julia Shuart and Josh Segal worked on the project while at AECOM, with Josh leading the landscape architecture effort from early design through construction. The project, which successfully balances stormwater treatment, habitat, recreation, sustainability, and history, has received rave reviews since the park's re-opening in June 2013.
