Nelson Byrd Woltz is an award-winning landscape architecture firm widely celebrated for|
combining sheer beauty with ecologically regenerative design. Join us as author and landscape architect Thomas Woltz discusses his book Nelson Byrd Woltz: Garden, Park, Community, Farm. Woltz will present a selection of twelve built projects representing the firm's contemporary vision for sustainable design. These examples demonstrate the remarkable breadth of their practice and inspire a new understanding of how landscape architecture can shape our world through urbanism, agriculture, and conservation sciences. The projects range from an urban townhouse garden to an animal-friendly habitat for the National Zoo's giant pandas to a large-scale sheep-and-cattle station along the coast of New Zealand.
