Additional Information: Serena Nelson joined Nelson Byrd Woltz in 2003 after completion of a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Virginia. Her final year of undergraduate studies focused heavily on the study of landscape as a connective infrastructure and the representation of layered relationships through drawing. In the Charlottesville office, Serena worked on the Campbell Hall Landscape Additions and the Asia Trail at the National Zoo. Following graduate school, Serena worked for two years with Starr Whitehouse Landscape Architects and Planners where she gained exposure to the unique design climate of New York City, working with a broad range of city agencies, community groups, institutional clients and private developers including work with Durst Fetner and BIG architects on the VIA West 57th on-structure multi-level courtyard. In the spring of 2012, Serena re-joined Nelson Byrd Woltz in the New York Office as a project manager for the design development of Hudson Yards, working with complex teams of architects and engineers to collaboratively shape an unprecedented on-structure landscape over an active train yard. She continues to be involved in ongoing phases, including the master plan for the second half of the site known as the Western Yards. She is also currently project manager for the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA
