2009 JSR Student Award to Yekaterina Yushmanova

Yekaterina "Katya" Yushmanova is the recipient of the 2009 Jane Silverstein Ries Student Award.

Yekaterina "Katya" Yushmanova is the recipient of a 2009 JSR Student Award for her project, "Changing Perspective: Farming Habitat," which she designed for the Pat Hurley neighborhood on the west side of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The award comes with a $2,000 scholarship.

The Pat Hurley neighborhood, historically an agricultural community, lies on the west bank of the Rio Grande. Her land use analysis showed an under-used area along the northeastern edge of the neighborhood where the riverside trail and riverside drain and irrigation canal dead end.

Yushmanova's land use analysis revealed an under-used area along the northeastern edge of the Pat Hurley neighborhood in Albuquerque, her proposed location for habitat restoration and a public recreational facility.

Her proposal for that area is a public recreational facility, habitat restoration and promoting environmental awareness among Albuquerque residents.

Yushmanova's design derived from a studio assignment for graduate students in the University of New Mexico's Landscape Architecture Studio 3 in the fall of 2008, taught by Adjunct Professor and Landscape Architect John Barney. Yushmanova earned a bachelor's in art history from the University of Culture and Art in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Since 1983, the Jane Silverstein Ries Award annually recognizes a person, group or organization that "demonstrates a pioneering sense of awareness and stewardship of land-use values in the Rocky Mountain region." Jane Silverstein Ries, FASLA was the first woman to pursue a career in landscape architecture in Colorado. She graduated from the Lowthorpe School of Landscape Architecture in Groton, Mass., in 1932, and by 1934 had already opened her own landscape architecture office in Denver. Ries held the third landscape architecture license in Colorado.
