Erin Percevault earned her Bachelor of Landscape Architecture with Honors from Louisiana State University. She has worked and traveled in Italy, China, and Bhutan, studying the influences of cultural phenomena on design, environmental process, and land management - from investigating the batture landscapes of the Mississippi River and the regional water management strategies for New Orleans, to exploring the historic gardens of Shanghai and Suzhou and climbing to the top of the Tiger’s Nest in Paro. As the 2014 National Olmsted Scholar, Erin researched the spatial, environmental, and cultural implications of newly emerging energy technologies in the United States. Before joining NBW in 2015, she worked at WORKSHOP: Ken Smith Landscape Architect and West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture in New York City. Erin continues to integrate cultural and environmental studies into her design practice.
Recent work at NBW includes Hudson Yards in New York City; the Gardens at the Jay Heritage Center in Rye, New York; Omega Institute Campus Plan in Rhinebeck, New York, and the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.
