Timothy Gazzo was born in Upstate New York and raised on the north shore of Long Island. The diverse landscapes of New York State, from faded downtowns to rapidly developing suburbs, have informed his interest in the evolution of places over time. His fascination with process and concept development has led him to prefer to be a part of all phases of the design process – from early conceptualization through design, documentation, and finally, realization. Prior to joining MVVA Tim worked as a senior designer and project manager with Dirtworks Landscape Architecture in Manhattan. Since joining in 2014 he has contributed to multiple projects including the US Embassy in Mexico City, Amherst College, and most recently a residential sculpture park located in upstate NY.
Tim’s background includes a Bachelor of Arts in English from St. Bonaventure University and an Associates of Applied Sciences from SUNY Farmingdale where he studied in the Urban Horticulture and Landscape Development program. In 2010 he graduated with a Masters of Landscape Architecture from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) where he was awarded the ASLA Student Certificate of Honor as well as the University Olmsted Scholar Award. He was on the first place team in the 2014 SLANT International Design Competition.
Timothy is a registered landscape architect in the State of New York.
