The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) is now accepting submissions for the 2022 Bunny Mellon Landscape Design Prize, which recognizes the excellence and creativity of projects from emerging landscape or architectural design professionals 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 is presented annually as part of the ICAA’s Bunny Mellon Landscape Curricula.
Conceptual and in-progress projects, student projects, architectural projects with a landscape element, and landscape design projects with an architectural element are all welcome!
Submissions are due by December 15th, 2021 and are open to entrants who were 35 years old or younger on 31st December 2021 OR are within the first seven years of their relevant design career, which is measured from graduation date from a related graduate program or another relevant parameter. Additional details can be found at

The single emerging professional selected as the winner will receive a $1,500 cash prize, and will be recognized at the annual Bunny Mellon Curricula Weekend Seminar on April 29th and 30th, 2022 in Atlanta, GA, with weekend and travel expenses paid.
