Roberto joined Living Habitats in 2021. A graduate from the University of Michigan MLA program, Roberto continues to be passionate about research-driven design and topics in urban ecology. Prior to joining Living Habitats, he practiced at SWA in San Francisco for almost two years gaining design experience at multiple scales and advocating for urban ecological and social issues in practice. While in the Bay Area, Roberto explored various ways to volunteer with organizations whose goals intersect landscape architecture.
His current interests focus on his experience in music, the sciences and personal cultural history. From studying soundscape ecology perceptions on the LA River Basin to researching Urban Soils as a mechanism for social infrastructure in Oakland, Roberto likes to explore the many connections landscape can have while also exploring the impact of BIPOC and marginalized groups on cities.
