The Boston Globe recently featured coverage of Janet Echelman's 2022 Harleston Parker Medal Award-winning sculpture "As If It Were Already Here" on (paywall).

Noting that this year's medal marks the first award for an ephemeral work, the Globe observes that the award jury vigorously discussed the time-limited 2015 work, ultimately conferring the medal, which annually recognizes “the most beautiful piece of architecture, building, monument, or structure built in the metropolitan Boston area in the past 10 years.”
