Interior designer Geoffrey Bradfield will be honored with the Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) spring benefit dinner on Tuesday, April 30, hosted by benefit chairman Alexa Hampton. In addition, Laurie D. Olin will receive the Thomas N. Armstrong III Award in Landscape Design.

“We are thrilled to recognize Geoffrey Bradfield and Laurie Olin for their considerable accomplishments in interior design and landscape architecture, respectively,” said Patricia M. Sovern, chairman of the NYSID Board of Trustees. “Both designers have made outstanding contributions to their fields and exemplify brilliantly NYSID’s guiding principle that the successful design of an interior space improves human welfare.”

Bradfield is known for his sense of glamour, magic and daring. In addition to Architectural Digest’s recognition of Bradfield in their "AD 100" and as Dean of American Design, he was named one of “America's Elite 1000” in The Ultimate List, Millennium Issue, the Inside Story Behind America's Top 1000 Names; published by Cadogan Publications. Robb Report included Bradfield in their list of “Top Ten Designers in The World” in 2011. His recent honors include: The American Cancer Society Man of Achievement Award 2012 and The Hyland Magazine Award for Design Excellence 2012.

Olin, founder and principal of OLIN in Philadelphia, is a distinguished teacher, author, and landscape architect. From vision to realization, he has guided many of OLIN’s signature projects, which span the history of the studio from the Washington Monument Grounds in Washington, D.C. to Bryant Park in New York City. His recent projects include the AIA award-winning Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, PA and the current project to transform the David H. Koch Plaza at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Olin is currently practice professor of landscape architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, where he has taught for 40 years. He is the recipient of the 2011 American Society of Landscape Architects Medal, the society’s highest award for a landscape architect. He is also a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects, and recipient of the 1998 Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
