Thomas Woltz: Craft, Conservation and Cattle (Interviewed by Larry Weaner)

Start Date

End Date

Description
Given his education in the fields of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Fine Arts, and Architectural History, it is not surprising that Thomas Woltz takes a broad approach in his design practice. Throw in a love of “working lands’’ and “wild places” derived from growing up on a North Carolina farm and you have an individual who defines Landscape Architecture much more expansively than most. This informal interview and conversation will explore the many paths that have led to, and intersect at, Thomas’s practice at Nelson Byrd Woltz, a firm that received 11 ASLA awards in 2020 alone.
