Design Matters: Ecology, Culture and Art in the work of Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects

_MG_4908finalThis exciting event will illustrate the role landscape architecture plays to reveal, frame, and sustain the powerful forces of ecology and culture that shape our world. The celebrated design work of Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects (NBW) is recognized for its ability to elegantly reveal stories of sites, while rebuilding fragile and degraded wildlife connectivity resulting in beautiful, healthy and connected places.

The lecture will highlight award winning NBW work that addresses historic landscapes, botanic collections, cultural treasures and restoration ecology projects across thousands of acres. The work spans the globe including farmland conservation in the Southeast and urban public parks in cities across the U.S. all the way to restoration of temperate rainforests and wetlands in New Zealand.

The panel will include Roxi Thoren, Associate Professor in the Departments of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the University of Oregon; George Briggs, executive director of The North Carolina Arboretum and president of the Centers for Environmental and Climatic Interaction; and Thomas Woltz, Principal and Owner of Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects.

This event is FREE for Museum members and students with ID. Non-member tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the door (cash is the most efficient method of payment).
