Kathryn Gustafson is third landscape architect to receive Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize in 57 years

This year’s Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize in Architecture has been presented by the American Academy of Arts and Letters to landscape architect Kathryn Gustafson. Director of Seattle-based Gustafson Guthrie Nichol and Partner of Gustafson Porter in London, Kathryn Gustafson is the third landscape architect in 57 years to take the prize.

James Polshek from the jury details: “Two projects in particular best exemplify her quietly spectacular work: the poetic and sublime Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain in London and her Lunar Garden (Arthur Ross Terrace) that frames the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History. The power of her imagination and the precision of her execution have enriched the many natural and man-made places she has touched with her magic.”

Hilary Ballon, Marlon Blackwell, Elizabeth Gray and Alan Organschi, and Michael Maltzan have also received honours from the American Academy of Arts and Letters for their strong personal expression.
