Tuesday, March 28
6p Reception, 6:30p Lecture, Steinberg Auditorium

Landscape architect Thomas Woltz, FASLA, CLARB, owner and principal of Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, will deliver the annual Anova Lecture for Landscape Architecture, titled Research-Driven Design: Culture and Ecology Across Typologies. NBW's designs are built on investigations and deep research into the ecological and cultural factors that have shaped each site over time. Woltz will present projects that navigate a variety of terrains, from rural conservation agriculture in Australia and New Zealand to intensely engineered urban parks in New York, Houston, and St Louis. The selected projects will showcase the firm's approach and breadth of work resulting in ecologically restorative work that is at once vital, grounded, and highly functional.
