Whatever city he finds himself in, Todd Wichman is always paying attention to its park settings and urban design, and how they function. With more than 30 years’ experience as a landscape architect, his highly trained eye is always noting the blend of form and function in the built environments he encounters.
Todd’s interests focus on excellence in design and sustainable executed works that serve a public purpose. As such, he has extensive experience and understanding of both the aesthetic and technical aspects of site planning and design, grading and drainage, and landscape design with a focus on public spaces for park, recreational uses, sports facilities, and playgrounds, which include nature play projects. His work also includes specialized work on state-owned and newly constructed Veteran’s Administration cemeteries in the Upper Midwest. In 2009, he was elevated to Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects—one of the highest honors in his field—recognizing his contributions to his profession and society.
Beyond the planning and design of the built and natural environments, he seeks solutions that are sympathetic to the context of their surroundings and that serve a public purpose. Outside of work, Todd enjoys travel, hiking, biking, and time spent with his family.
