Alisha Savage


Alisha joined Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects (NBW) in 2012. She received her Bachelor of Science in Architecture in 2001 and her Master of Architecture from the University of Virginia in 2005. As a recipient of the Sarah McArthur Nix fellowship, Alisha examined the ongoing adaptation of a medieval urban fortification within Paris. Her master’s thesis focused on the economic revitalization of rural communities in Jamaica through creative adaptation of disused industrial infrastructure. Prior to joining NBW, Alisha taught undergraduate architecture studios at the University of Virginia, and practiced in Charlottesville and Washington DC. She and her husband designed and built their residence in Charlottesville. Her work has been recognized through regional and national awards and appeared in several publications. Current and recent projects at NBW include a roof garden, part of a larger, education-focused development at King’s Cross in London; the design for the Under Armour global headquarters in Baltimore; the design and implementation of estate landscapes in the Bahamas and Nashville; and Conservation Agriculture projects in Tennessee, including the master plan, ecological restoration, and design of Lone Oaks Farm outside of Memphis.
