Alexander Robinson ASLA, MLA ’05 awarded Rome Prize

The American Academy in Rome announced that Alexander Robinson ASLA, MLA '05 was honored as a 2015-2016 Rome Prize fellow. The Rome Prize, which provides significant time, research materials, and studio space at the academy’s recently restored Villa Aurelia in Rome, has long been a coveted honor. Described as “life changing” and “transformative” by the 1997–1998 fellow Mary Margaret Jones, FASLA, it is also a way of benchmarking where and how the concerns of landscape architecture converge with currents in the arts and humanities. Along with a cohort of musicians, writers, artists, scholars, and architects, the new landscape fellows will live and work in Rome for six months to a year.
