The Dallas Architecture Forum will continue its 2018-2019 lecture season with renowned landscape architect Thomas Woltz, director and owner of Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, based in Charlottesville, Virginia and New York City.
In the last two decades of practice, Woltz has created a work that combines the beauty and function of built forms with an understanding of complex biological systems and restoration ecology. NBW projects have created models of biodiversity and sustainable agriculture in areas to reclaim damaged ecological infrastructures and create farmland that has produced hundreds of acres of reconstructed wetlands, afforested land, native meadows and thriving wildlife habitats.
Currently, Thomas and NBW are designing large public parks in the US, Canada and New Zealand. These projects include Memorial Park in Houston, Hudson Yards in New York City, NoMA Green in Washington DC, Cornwall Park in Auckland, Aga Khan Garden in Alberta, Canada, and three parks in Nashville, including Centennial Park. Other important projects of the company include landscape designs for the Rothko Chapel in Houston, the historic sites of Olana and Monticello and Guggenheim Venice.
