Rutgers alumnus E. Timothy Marshall (CC’83), co-chair of the Landscape Architecture alumni advisory committee, has been elevated to the Council of Fellows by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). Marshall, who has maintained close ties to Rutgers, is a longtime supporter of the Roy H. DeBoer Travel Prize in Landscape Architecture and more recently the Roy H. DeBoer Endowed Scholarship at the university.
Fellowship is among the highest honors the ASLA bestows on members. This award recognizes the contributions of these individuals to their profession and society at large over a sustained period of time as demonstrated by their works, leadership and management, knowledge, and service. Individuals must be members of ASLA in good standing for at least 10 years and must be recommended to the Council of Fellows by the Executive Committee of their local chapter, the Executive Committee of ASLA, or the Executive Committee of the Council of Fellows. Marshall received his nomination, in Leadership/Management from the New Jersey Chapter of the ASLA.
Marshall, of ETM Associates, LLC in Highland Park, New Jersey, is a leader in public space management, providing strategies and guidance for many of the nation’s most respected landscape architecture firms. He has an impressive list of significant national and international projects. His work is guided by the notion that parks and other public spaces that thrive are those that transcend the commonplace in all aspects of design quality, programming, facilities and maintenance. He identifies and addresses potential problems through the creation and evaluation of alternative solutions to management goals and user needs. Beginning with his early work on Central Park, he is now an international authority and high-level practitioner of the art of park creation, restoration and operation. Marshall and 27 other members will be recognized at the 2016 ASLA Annual Meeting & Expo, October 21-24 in New Orleans.
