Principal, Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects (NBW)
Over the past two decades of practice, Thomas Woltz has forged a body of work that integrates the beauty and function of built forms with an understanding of complex biological systems and restoration ecology. NBW projects create models of biodiversity and sustainable agriculture within areas of damaged ecological infrastructure and working farmland, yielding hundreds of acres of reconstructed wetlands, reforested land, native meadows and flourishing wildlife habitat.
At present, NBW is entrusted with the design of nine major public parks across the United States, Canada and New Zealand. In addition to the Aga Khan Garden, Alberta, Canada, these projects include Hudson Yards in New York City, Memorial Park in Houston, and Centennial Park in Nashville.
In 2011, Thomas was invested into the American Society of Landscape Architects Council of Fellows, among the highest honors in his profession, and in 2013 he was named Design Innovator of the Year by the Wall Street Journal magazine.
