Jennifer Lauer


Jennifer joined Nelson Byrd Woltz in 2019 after receiving her Master of Landscape Architecture from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry and completing a graduate workshop in historical landscape studies at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington DC. She received an NY ASLA Award of Honor and was named a 2019 Olmsted Scholar Finalist for her original design research investigating the linkages between ecological injustice and memorialization on a former slave plantation in central New York. Prior to her graduate work, Jennifer held internships at the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania and the National Park Service, where she pursued her interests in public horticulture and cultural landscapes. At Nelson Byrd Woltz, Jennifer continues to explore ways to weave cultural landscape research with generative design processes to reveal important narratives, values, and opportunities. Recent projects include the Sylvester Manor Educational Farm.
