Description
Thomas Woltz will present projects from the Nelson Byrd Woltz (NBW) portfolio that embody the firm's research-based approach. He will show projects across typologies, from a botanic garden to a working farm to a large public park to a residential urban terrace. Each case study illustrates how deep research into ecologies and cultures shaping the land can become legible in contemporary site-specific narratives.
