Explore the power of public space with Nina Chase, American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), who is the new Senior Project Manager at Riverlife. Nina advocates for public space and placemaking initiatives as foundational building blocks for cities.
Formally trained as a landscape architect, Nina's recent work includes the urban design and landscape architecture guidelines for Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., the concept design for the Strip District Riverfront Park in Pittsburgh, PA, and the design and construction of the award winning temporary pop-up, The Lawn on D in Boston.
A native of West Virginia, Nina graduated from Harvard's Graduate School of Design and West Virginia University. Nina has been an Adjunct Instructor at Northeastern University and the Boston Architectural College where her teaching focused on the intersection of landscape architecture and urban design. She has lectured at MIT and Rhode Island School of Design and has served as a design critic at Harvard's Graduate School of Design. For the past three years, Nina served as the Chair of the Boston Society of Landscape Architects Emerging Professionals Committee. Nina was recently named "Landscape Architect to Watch" by Green Building & Design Magazine, and her graduate work along the Chicago River received a national 2012 American Society of Landscape Architects Student Honor Award. Nina currently sits on the national Landscape Architecture Foundation board.
