Martin contributes his more than 15 years of professional experience to the MVVA design process. Originally trained as an architect, he uses his broad technical experience to seamlessly guide MVVA projects from concept to construction, facilitating the varied needs of multiple stakeholders, contractors and consultants. Martin's fascination with the context of structure and the dynamic between form and environment led him from architecture to landscape architecture and ultimately to MVVA. His recent work includes North Grant Park in Chicago and Penn Park at the University of Pennsylvania. Martin has also taken leadership roles in the design and implementation of the Allegheny Riverfront Park in Pittsburgh, PA, and Teardrop Park in New York, NY.
Martin received the Merit Award for Housing and Community Development from the Boston Society of Landscape Architects. He has been a design critic at Parsons School of Design, Rhode Island School of Design, and Boston Architectural College. Martin has been a guest lecturer at Philadelphia University and a presenter at the Design on the Delaware Conference. Originally from Argentina, he received a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture and Urbanism from the Universidad de Buenos Aires. He also earned a Master of Architecture and Environmental Design from Parsons School of Design.
Martin joined MVVA in 2001.
