The ICAA is pleased to offer The Bunny Mellon Landscape Design Prize, which recognizes the excellence and creativity of a project from an emerging landscape or architectural design professional whose work is inspired by classical or traditional design, holistically considers the symbiosis between outdoor environments and physical structures, and interweaves garden and architectural elements within their design. This prize acknowledges exceptional work that furthers the ICAA’s belief that the unity of architecture, design, craftsmanship, and landscape are vital to lasting and meaningful places, in the spirit of Bunny Mellon’s ceaseless interest, passion, and pleasure in gardens, horticulture, and design. This prize is presented annually as part of the Bunny Mellon Landscape Curricula at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art.

There is one Bunny Mellon Landscape Design Prize awarded each year to an emerging professional for a singular project that best meets the prize’s criteria. The winner will receive a $1,500 cash prize, and will be recognized at the ICAA Southeast Garden Symposium: An Exploration of Architecture & Landscape, May 30-April 1 in Atlanta, with weekend and travel expenses paid. Their work will be exhibited at the Symposium and announced on ICAA social media, our website, and other media and promotional materials. The top three finalists will receive the recognition of “Highly Commended” from the jury, and their work will be recognized at the Symposium.
