REA principals honored with recognition



REA is pleased to announce recent recognition given to three of our firm’s Principals:

Deane D. Rundell, Co-Founder/Consulting Principal, was elevated to the American Society of Landscape Architects Council of Fellows at the 2013 ASLA National Convention.  Fellowship is among the highest honors the ASLA bestows on members and recognizes the contributions of these individuals to their profession and society at large based on their works, leadership and management, knowledge, and service.

From the ASLA website:  Deane received his nomination, for Works, from the Indiana Chapter. His parks, downtown plazas, campuses, and trails bring people together in meaningful ways. They form crucial community gathering places, invariably providing flexible open spaces with careful custom detailing and meaningful art to raise people’s spirits. The small and midsize towns of the Midwest are his chosen medium. He has spent a career learning how they work, their special needs, and how to collaborate with them. He draws from their histories and characters to recreate true places of value. Deane’s successful practice has significantly transformed the profession of landscape architecture in Indiana. His work sets a benchmark for the profession.

Kevin Osburn, Principal, received the 2013 Award of Outstanding Achievement from Ball State University’s College of Architecture and Planning.  The annual award is given to selected alumni who are making outstanding contributions to their profession and to society.

Carl Kincaid, Principal, received the Distinguished Agriculture Alumni Award from Purdue University College of Agriculture for demonstrating outstanding accomplishments, making significant contributions to the profession and to society in general, and exhibiting high potential for future professional growth.

We extend our heartiest congratulations and thank Deane, Carl, and Kevin for their exemplary leadership and contributions!
