Walter Meyer
Local Office Landscape
Walter Meyer is an urban designer whose work aims to capture the intersection of infrastructure, urbanism, and ecology. Meyer spent much of his career as an ecological designer for various firms, and his work included modeling ostensible hazards such as storm surge, runoff pollution, tsunamis, and unstable soils, and converting them to project assets. In 2006 he co-founded Local Office Landscape Architecture, and since then he has been a lecturer and visiting critic at Columbia University, Harvard University, MIT, Parsons New School, Pratt Institute, and the University of Florida, among others. His firmís work includes the Parque del Litoral, in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico for the 2010 Central American Games, which won the 2010 AIA Honor award in Puerto Rico; it is the first implementation of phytoremediation technology at the scale of an entire city.  In 2009 Local Office was awarded a state grant by the New York State Council of the Arts for CSO2GO, a series of wetland parks mounted on barges that will be deployed city wide to treat water pollution. He also won a 2008 NY-ASLA Merit Award for "Garden between City and Sea," a realization of the principles of sustainable coastal landscape architecture at the residential scale.  Walter holds a B.A. from the University of Florida and an MLAUD from Harvard Graduate School of Design.
