Todd Wenskoski is an urban designer and landscape architect with fifteen years experience designing complex urban redevelopment projects, parks and public spaces. Todd frequently uses contemporary approaches to design public spaces and parks that respond to the social and environmental needs of the project. He has planned and designed projects in the United States, China, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, including large-scale urban redevelopments, waterfronts, parks, plazas and private landscapes.
Todd began his career working on large urban design and public space projects, most notably the 16th Street Mall Extension and Millennium Bridge at Riverfront Park in Denver, Colorado. His projects emphasize the role of public open-space and parks as a way to stimulate redevelopment and create socially active spaces that provide long-term benefits to cities and their residents. He promotes the expanding role of landscape architecture in urban design and often speaks about the "space between buildings" as the engine of the livable city. Through strategic initiatives, his projects concentrate on creating livable cities by bringing together environmental, social and cultural elements.
In addition to his work as a designer, Todd is a regular studio instructor and critic at the University of Colorado Denver and has been a studio critic at the University of Texas, Auburn University and a Career Discovery instructor at Harvard's Graduate School of Design. Todd attended the University of Arizona and graduated with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and then attended Harvard's Graduate School of Design, receiving a Master of Landscape Architecture in Urban Design.
