The small-but-mighty landscape architecture team of Land3 Studio was honored March 2 for its design work on the Kansas University Medical Center Health Education Building in Kansas City, Kan.

Land3 Studio and Jeffrey L. Bruce & Company were given a Merit Award by the Prairie Gateway Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects in the Design-Built completed-projects category for its work on the KUMC building. Land3 led the site design of streetscape spaces and the courtyard/event space on the project that was completed last fall. Along with Jeffrey L. Bruce, Land3 also led the green roof analysis, programming and design.

“We think the award is a tribute to the entire ownership and design team whose vision led to this outcome, of which we are very proud to have been a part,” Land3 Studio owner Bob Bushyhead.

The awards were given at the annual Prairie Gateway ASLA Awards Gala hosted by the Center for Architecture and Design.

Longtime Land3 Studio landscape architect Brian Roth was elected president of the Prairie Gateway Chapter, assuming his new role in May through November of 2020.

LAND3 Studio has been a part of dozens of regional landscape architecture projects over the last decade, ranging from Parks/Sports Facilities, Mixed Use Development, and Health & Education. LAND3 Studio is currently the lead landscape architecture firm on the new KCI Airport project.

Land3 Studio is located at 317 SE Main Street in downtown Lee’s Summit and online at
