The MIT School of Architecture + Planning has named landscape architect/sociologist Randolph Hester the winner of the 2011 Kevin Lynch Award. The award is presented biannually for outstanding scholarship and/or practice in urban design, planning and landscape design.

Hester is Professor Emeritus of Landscape Architecture & Environmental Planning and Urban Design at UC Berkeley.
Hester is a founder of the research movement to apply sociology to the design of neighborhoods, cities and landscapes. His work extends Lynch's legacy by focusing on the role of citizens in community design and ecological planning. Professor Hester is a strong advocate for community participation in the development of what he calls ecological democracies and sacred landscapes - spaces that grow from true understanding of a local community's needs and the potential of its resources.
During his thirty years as a professor Berkeley, Hester served as Chair of Berkeley's Department of Landscape Architecture & Environmental Planning. He authored ten books and numerous articles on citizen participation and socially democratic planning, including Neighborhood Space (1975), Planning Neighborhood Space with People (1982), Community Design Primer (1990) and most recently Design for Ecological Democracy (2006).
According to Amy Glasmeier, head of MIT's Department of Urban Studies and Planning, "The receipt of the Lynch award recognizes Randy Hester's contribution to the valuation of the citizen's view of his or her community and how this perspective is a vital component to urban design."
The award will be presented to Hester on April 8 at 5:30PM in MIT's Media Lab Complex, 20 Ames Street, Cambridge, MA.
