Tony Chevalier, PLA

My focus is on providing innovative design solutions that are responsive to place, and promoting social, economical and environmental sustainability.


Tony has a very diverse background, which combines the creative problem solving abilities of a designer with the systematic analysis abilities of a planner. His professional experience includes master planning, park and trail design, streetscapes, bicycle infrastructure, bike share, municipal redevelopment projects, site design, and planting design, among others.

In addition to his role at Alta, he also works as an Adjunct Professor for the University of Minnesota’s College of Design. Over the past 10 years he has taught undergraduate design studios, classes focused on site analysis, design, and sustainability.

He enjoys creating poetry in the landscape, finding opportunity in adversity and creating value out of perceived liability. His personal belief is that great ideas are at the confluence of what makes the practical poetic and the functional fundamental.
