With experience in both landscape architecture and civil engineering, Anneliza’s work at OLIN focuses on the performance of integrated living and engineering systems and the coordination of infrastructure within public space. Leveraging the landscape value of infrastructural systems previously viewed as singularly engineering-based, Anneliza sees areas of disturbance as opportunity for design intervention that enhances both site performance and ecological exchange. Anneliza values the social nature of the profession, in both the workplace and in the spaces created through design, and strives to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration.
Since joining OLIN in 2014, Anneliza has contributed to a number of urban design and master plan projects. She works closely with the City of Alexandria as project manager for the design and implementation of an urban park space along the Alexandria Waterfront. Her projects also include the recently completed U.S. Embassy in London, Pioneer Court at the Chicago Tribune Tower in Chicago, and the design of an entry plaza for the Social Security Administration headquarters campus in Woodlawn, Maryland. Working at a variety of scales, Anneliza has developed landscape and stormwater guidelines for campus projects in the southwestern U.S., Arlington, Virginia, and Shenzhen, China, as well as recommendations for streetscape activation at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.
