The prestigious distinction is awarded in recognition of exceptional design work sustained over an extended period of time.

“I am truly honored to receive this medal from my fellow colleagues,” said Burnett. “OJB’s success lies in an unwavering design ethos which seeks to create memorable experiences that challenge the status quo and break boundaries. For 27 years our office has approached each design challenge in a collaborative way, focusing on creating timeless projects that exceed our clients’ vision.”

Burnett will receive the award at the annual ASLA meeting on Oct. 24 in New Orleans.
