The Cultural Landscape Foundation
Conference: Second Wave of Modernism in Landscape Architecture in America (November 13-15, 2008 in Chicago)

Thomas Woltz, ASLA

Mr. Woltz is a landscape architect who holds Masters degrees in Architecture and in Landscape Architecture from the University of Virginia. He studied Architecture and Fine Art as an undergraduate and later studied architecture in Italy and French Literature at the Sorbonne in Paris. In 2003 he became a partner of Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects in Charlottesville, VA, following seven years working with partner Warren Byrd and five years working in Venice, Italy. In addition to his practice, Mr. Woltz maintains a part-time faculty position at the University of Virginia School of Architecture. He currently teaches Sites and Systems, a graduate course which explores ecological system analysis as a generator of design strategies in architecture and landscape architecture. Through teaching and constructed form, he seeks to emphasize the rich dialogue between the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, and ecological process. Woltz is currently designing a number of projects, (some dealing with large scale environmental conservation efforts) in Central Virginia, Jamaica, the New York region, and in New Zealand. Nelson Byrd Woltz opened a branch office in Manhattan in 2004 and since then he has divided his time between the two offices. Woltz is a board member of The Cultural Landscape Foundation.
