Mary Moore Wallinger, RLA, ASLA
With over fifteen years of experience in landscape architecture and urban design, Mary Moore approaches projects by applying sustainable and creative strategies to realize a site’s full potential. As the founding Principal of LAndArt Studio, she is a staunch advocate of smart growth, low impact development and celebrating the landscape in ways that shape the human experience. She received her MLA from the University of Virginia School of Architecture and much of her design is influenced by her previous experience living and studying gardens throughout Europe and her first position with OJB, the Office of James Burnett. In addition, her knowledge is backed by years of working in gardens including those of Monticello, the historic home of Thomas Jefferson. Mary Moore has managed and overseen the design and implementation of numerous projects both public and private. Her experience includes working with municipalities, schools, universities, healthcare facilities, private corporations and non-profit organizations. She has worked on city and town center master plans and design guidelines, streetscape improvement projects, parks and recreational spaces, campus design, healing gardens, and a number of sustainable design projects.
She has presented at both national and regional conferences on multiple topics including smart growth, waterfront redevelopment, downtown revitalization, promoting farm-friendly communities, and urban forestry. In 2014 she presented at both the National American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) Conference in Denver, CO and the National Congress for New Urbanism (CNU) Conference in Buffalo, NY.
