A passionate champion and designer of the urban public realm. Based in New York City, Michelle is a
Partner and Landscape Architect with Snøhetta. Her work is trans-disciplinary, evocative, and
representative of a simple foundational premise shared with Snøhetta: to create places that
enhance the positive relationships between people and their environments. Both aspirational and
pragmatic, her work reveals and complements the sublime qualities of embedded beauty and
rational functionality within the constructed environment.
Michelle’s enthusiasm is reflected in her commitment to design and leadership within her firm and
community. She is an active board member for the Urban Design Forum in New York City, a member
of The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s Stewardship Council, and lectures at conferences,
universities, and communities throughout the world. Since 2001, her range of work around North
America spans from small urban plazas to public parks and large-scale master plans. Currently, she
leads several efforts with Snøhetta, including the design of the Willamette Falls Riverwalk in Oregon,
a transformation of a 22-acre post-industrial site; as well as a re-imagining of the 20-acre Blaisdell
Center in Central Honolulu; and the re-imagined design of a significant public plaza in midtown
