Danielle’s interest in landscape architecture lies in the interaction of natural systems and the inherited infrastructure of 20th century urbanization. A senior associate at Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates (MVVA), she contributes her skill in facilitating the dialogue between research, analysis, and design to many MVVA projects. Since 2011, Danielle has managed the Waller Creek project in Austin, Texas—the restoration of an urban creek and its 28-acre sub-watershed. Danielle has taught urban design studio at Columbia University, and she has been a visiting critic at Louisiana State University, Rutgers University, University of Illinois, and Utrecht University. She received a Bachelor of Arts in art history from the University of Chicago, and earned a Masters in Landscape Architecture from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, receiving the Jacob Weidenmann graduation award for excellence in design. Prior to joining MVVA in 2009, Danielle practiced landscape architecture in Berlin with TOPOTEK 1.
