Landscape architecture firm Reed Hilderbrand and Trahan Architects have announced that the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts has approved a new concept design for the National Bonsai and Penjing Museum at the U.S. National Arboretum, Washington, D.C.
The historic White House Rose Garden is going to be restored. The final design plan is a collaboration by landscape architecture firms Perry Guillot, Inc., and Oehme, van Sweden & Associates/OvS. The plan will renew the design first implemented by Rachel Lambert “Bunny” Mellon during the Kennedy Administration, which has been the guiding blueprint for the Rose Garden since the installation in 1962.
