The ICAA FL Chapter is delighted to offer this unique opportunity to shed light on collaborations within our own membership, many of which are past Addison Mizner Award Recipients, as we announce our 12th annual Addison Mizner Award Call for Entries.

As moderated by Mitch Owens, our three lecture panels, all of which have a history of design collaboration, will discuss the creative process across the professions of architecture, interior design, and landscape. They will highlight their Addison Mizner Award winning projects and others, and talk about their collaborations over the years through engaging conversation and imagery.
