Context is the crux of landscape architecture these days—a land’s history and its natural inheritance hold sway over decisions about siting, materials, and, of course, what to plant. Thomas Woltz and his partners at Nelson Byrd Woltz, which has offices in Charlottesville, Virginia, and New York City, have sought to embrace that sensibility. Principles of conservation and restoration are a part of nearly every Woltz project, and scientists regularly weigh in on his proposals.
