Biographie : Gullivar Shepard is a Partner of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. Landscape Architects. While originally trained as an architect and a cultural anthropologist, he has been a landscape architect for 23 years and has long been a guiding force at MVVA by steering many of the firm’s urban-scale projects. Gullivar has held key leadership roles on large and complex projects where coordination between the natural, infrastructural, and urban context is of primary importance such as the CityArchRiver project in St. Louis, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the Port Lands Flood Protection and Enabling Infrastructure Project in Toronto. Gullivar is the lead planner and designer for the Waterloo Greenway in Austin, TX. He is recognized for his skill in navigating programmatic requirements, regulatory and jurisdictional hurdles, and problematic site conditions to create rich public spaces. Gullivar’s interdisciplinary perspective always aims to bridge the technical systems-thinking and the cultural considerations of public space within the design process. His projects and research are a laboratory for innovative building methods, site design, communication tools, engagement, and project management. Gullivar received a Master of Architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, where he was awarded the Araldo A. Cossutta Annual Prize for Design Excellence. Since joining the firm in 1999, Gullivar has applied his integrated design approach to challenges such as ecological restoration, flood control, transportation planning, utility planning and choreographing connections between parks and larger forces of urban development.Répertoire des membres
