Scott Wunderle, owner of Terrigenous LLC, began his term in November as president of the 60-member Vermont chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects.

There are 16,000 ASLA members nationwide, according to Wunderle.

Among duties that Wunderle has as chapter president is maintaining the chapter’s website, publishing its quarterly newsletters as well as making sure that the chapter advocates for its profession in Montpelier as well as in Washington, D.C.

In addition to organizing work here in Vermont, he recently attended the Chapter President’s Council bi-annual meeting of the American Society of Landscape Architects in Denver, Colo., and will do so again this spring in Washington, D.C., and next fall in Chicago, Ill.

With a background in fine art and construction, Wunderle continues to advocate for the profession of landscape architecture and for the design process in general. Wunderle grew up working in the Vermont landscape, earned two bachelor degrees at RISD, worked in Providence and Boston then returned to Vermont starting Terrigenous Landscape Architecture in 1998 in Chester.

“The most successful projects I’ve worked on combine design, construction management, and hand craft. I control the macro and the micro throughout the process, and rely on others to do everything in between,” he said.

In Vermont, Wunderle says, landscape architects are working on a variety of projects, including statewide planning, parks, bike paths, gardens, waterways, public spaces, ski area expansions, house sites, streetscapes and village greens.

He added that nationally, much of the profession is focused on improving our inhabitable environment within the urban condition, in Vermont, landscape architects are often working with care and attention without the pressures of human density, and as a result bringing a different perspective to the national conversation.

“Vermont’s iconic landscapes and long-standing tradition of being home to craftspeople, environmentalists, farmers, and outdoor enthusiasts is an honor to represent at the national meetings.”

Wunderle says he will focus on advocacy, education, fellowship and communication over the next year within the state as president of VT-ASLA. To learn more about Wunderle and his work, visit www.terrigenous.com or stop by the studio next to the Chester Town Hall.
