Michelle Delk / Snøhetta

Gui Auditorium / Knowlton Hall
September 11, 2019 - 5:30pm

Michelle Delk will lecture in Knowlton Hall’s Gui Auditorium at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 11. Based in New York City, Delk is a partner and landscape architect with Snøhetta. She works to cultivate trans-disciplinary collaboration for the creative advancement of our public environment. Clear thinking and collaborative principles characterize Delk’s leadership of myriad dynamic projects, while her unencumbered vision allows for concerted explorations that embrace experimentation and improvisation within complicated social environments.

Delk’s enthusiasm is reflected in her commitment to design and leadership within her firm and community.  Currently she is an active board member for the Urban Design Forum in New York City and often is an invited speaker at conferences, universities and communities throughout the world. Informed by these various involvements, she seeks to discover and expand the urban landscape vernacular, furthering positive dialog between our current and future urban vision.

With a natural ability for engaging diverse community and client intricacies, Delk guides complex projects ranging from master plans and brownfield redevelopments, to realizations of urban plazas, parks, streetscapes and riverfronts.  Currently, she leads several efforts with Snøhetta, including the design of the Willamette Falls Riverwalk in Oregon, the Blaisdell Center Master Plan in Honolulu and the re-imagined design of a significant public plaza in midtown Manhattan.
