Molly Bourne


Molly Bourne (RLA, ASLA) is a Principal at MNLA, a New York City-based landscape architecture firm and a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania.

Molly has practiced for 26 years and believes that landscape architecture is an optimistic way of seeing the world.  In her practice, she strives to ensure that designs evolve through a contextual and collaborative pursuit in which landscape architects serve as advocates and leaders. Molly's consistent passion and commitment to excellence have driven her design teams towards many renewed and transformed spaces within the urban fabric of New York City and beyond. Most recently, she has been leading MNLA’s efforts for Waterline Square, East Side Coastal Resiliency and collaborating with the World Wildlife Federation on a pilot project to expand schoolyard pollinator gardens throughout Brooklyn. A graduate of the University of Florida, Molly holds a Bachelor of Arts in Landscape Architecture. She actively fosters the future of design through her work with the ACE Mentor Program for New York City high school students since 2012.
