Adeline Belsby joined Nelson Byrd Woltz in 2024. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Landscape Architecture with a minor in Sustainable Design from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2020, where her team received first place in the Thomas Church Memorial Design Competition. During her undergraduate career, she interned at reSITE, an urban think tank in Prague, studied housing and urbanism in Barcelona, and gardened with the Clark Kerr community garden and the Blake Botanical Garden.
Prior to joining NBW, Adeline worked every summer on her grandparents’ farm near Chateau-Thierry, France, developing her sense for small-scale, functional agricultural systems. She worked at Plural in San Francisco on projects including public parks, plazas, streetscapes, campuses, and permaculture farms. She most recently worked with Christian Duvernois Landscape/Studio on bespoke residential projects throughout Manhattan.
Adeline is working on increasing the overlap between landscape architecture, agriculture, and art through layered multi-functional landscapes that are useful to individuals as much as urban and rural communities.
