Keynote speaker – Landscape Australia Conference 2017

Thomas Woltz is principal of the US practice Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects (NBW). Over the past two decades, 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.

NBW is currently entrusted with the design of eight major public parks across the US, Canada and New Zealand. These include Hudson Yards in New York City, Memorial Park in Houston, Centennial Park in Nashville and Devonian Botanic Garden in Alberta, Canada

In 2011, Thomas was invested into the American Society of Landscape Architects Council of Fellows, among the highest honours in the profession, and in 2013 he was named Design Innovator of the Year by the Wall Street Journal.
