Emerging Voices 2015
Studio Roberto Rovira
Roberto Rovira, a landscape architect with a design, engineering, and fine arts background, founded Miami-based Studio Roberto Rovira in 2011. With an emphasis on collaboration and experimentation, the firm seeks the “inherent power” of moments of collision between the built and natural world. Recent projects include the Sky Lounge, a new student space at Florida International University; a master plan for Parque de las Flores to convert an abandoned Colombian coffee plantation into a botanical garden; and the Ecological Atlas Project, a digital database and visual compendium of ecosystems; and the Wynwood Greenhouse Park, a new public space in Miami with vertical green walls. Observation, investigation, and artistry serve as the cornerstones of the studio’s practice.
