For over 20 years, landscape architect Michelle Delk, partner at New York-based firm, Sn∅hetta, has led projects ranging from master plans and brownfield redevelopments to urban parks, streetscapes, and riverfronts. Her work follows her firm's foundational premise: to create places that enhance the positive relationships between people and their environments.
From urban canopies to canyons; intimate sculpture gardens to wild west landscapes; rocking seesaws to post-modern histories, Delk will share the intriguing dualities she has explored in recent projects, including the Willamette Falls Riverwalk in Oregon, a transformation of a 22-acre post-industrial site; the innovation collaborative design of the Calgary Public Library Plaza in Alberta, Canada; and the re-imagining of a significant public plaza in midtown Manhattan.
Michelle Delk is a passionate advocate and designer of the public realm. She encourages innovative approaches to collaboration that are non-hierarchical and trans-disciplinary. Throughout her career, Delk has engaged with a variety of landscape advocacy organizations, curatorial projects, and academic institutions. For her exceptional contributions to the landscape architecture profession and society at large, she has been named a 2023 member of the ASLA Council of Fellows.
