The firm's pioneering efforts showed a deep understanding of the complex interrelationship of social, physical, economic and environmental forces, which expanded the influence not only of the firm but also the profession. The JJR Research Grant honors that heritage and recognizes the importance of applied research to the growth of the profession. In order for landscape architecture to make its full contribution as a profession and a discipline, the knowledge base on which it rests must be continually refined and expanded through applied research. This award is intended to advance the profession through research in areas relating to sustainable development. Sustainable development is defined by the U.N.'s Commission on Environment and Development as development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Application is open to any landscape architect or allied professional who has at least five years of experience in professional practice. Completed applications will be forwarded to the Landscape Architecture Foundation 's Education & Research Vice President and Committee for initial review and recommendation. Final selection will be made by the committee chairperson and JJR representative.
