H. Keith Wagner and Jeff Hodgson of Wagner Hodgson Landscape Architecture in Burlington were formally inducted into the New England Design Hall of Fame on Thursday, Nov. 7 in Boston. The New England Design Hall of Fame honors individuals who have had especially significant careers in residential design in New England. A small number of architects, interior designers, and landscape architects whose work, influence, and community involvement set them at the pinnacle of their profession are inducted into the Hall of Fame at an annual ceremony each November. This year, over 500 people attended the awards gala held at 60 State Street in downtown Boston. The 2013 inductees are featured in the November/December issue of New England Home Magazine. In the spring, each inductee will have a tree planted in their honor at the Boston Design Center.
Hodgson, a Shelburne resident, commented, “Boston has a very large and talented design community and despite the fact that many of our projects are regional, it is easy to feel a bit isolated practicing out of Vermont. Keith and I were extremely humbled to receive this level of recognition from our New England peers.”
