Thanks to a generous $1 million grant from the Gerard B. Lambert Foundation, the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art is proud to present first-of-its-kind programming in landscape architecture for designers, students, and enthusiasts, with particular emphasis on educating the next generation: the Bunny Mellon Curricula. This curricula, the first to be named in honor of Bunny Mellon, honors her commitment to landscape design, and her deeply-held belief that architecture is firmly linked to its surrounding landscape.


The ICAA thanks the Gerard B. Lambert Foundation for its generous support of this program.

Many Thanks to Our Sponsors

The Bunny Mellon Curricula Laurel Society is an intimate group of supporters of the Bunny Mellon efforts for landscape design education such as lectures, continuing education, and programs emphasizing the importance of landscape design as an integral part of creating lasting and meaningful places. The laurel is a common motif in classical design, signifying triumph and honor, and therefore a fitting title for such an impactful group of champions.
