About the Speaker
As Central Park’s chief landscape architect, Chris Nolan led a multidisciplinary in-house team of planning and design professionals in the physical planning effort and restoration program of the Park. During his more than 30-year tenure at the Conservancy, he oversaw a program of capital work valued at more than $450 million, including the restoration of major landscapes and architectural features and the reconstruction of the Park’s infrastructure, recreational facilities, and public amenities. He continues to consult with the Central Park Conservancy as principal of Studio Nolan Landscape Architect and Planners, including leading the capstone project of the Park’s restoration: re-envisioning the pool and rink at the Harlem Meer. Mr. Nolan is a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects and has served on the Botanic Gardens Advisory Council at Cornell.
