Alisha joined Nelson Byrd Woltz 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 urban fortifications within Paris. Additional studies in Copenhagen, Venice and Jamaica shaped her interest in design at various scales.
Prior to joining Nelson Byrd Woltz, Alisha taught undergraduate architecture studios at the University of Virginia. She has nine years of experience in the field of architecture both in Charlottesville and Washington DC, with contributions appearing in architectural publications.
Recent projects include Conservation Agriculture Studio master plans for private clients; a landscape Masterplan for Auburn University organized around natural water systems; and a landscape for Georgia Tech’s new Engineering Biosystems Building.
Alisha’s involvement and experience with NBW’s Conservation Agriculture Studio continues to grow with projects in Virginia and Tennessee now on the boards. She is also part of the design team working on the landscape for a historic residence in Cherry Creek, Denver (with the site originally designed by Annette Hoyt Flanders)
