Paloma Garcia
Senior Designer
Paloma was raised in the dense urban context of Mexico City, where landscape and design play an essential role in improving quality of life. In her approach to landscape architecture she is continually inspired by the varied Mexican landscape and the culture’s vibrant aesthetic.

Since starting at MVVA, Paloma has worked on the Lower Don River project in Toronto, initially helping with graphics and studies for the due diligence phase and currently working on the shoreline and parkland design for a section of the project. She was also the project designer for the Bates Courtyard gardens at Wellesley College and oversaw their construction. Prior to joining MVVA as a full-time employee, she worked as an intern for three years serving as a liaison for an MVVA project in Mexico City, as well as helping with research and model building.

Paloma received a Bachelor of Arts from Parsons School of Design, graduating with honors. She was the recipient of the Tishman Environmental Merit Scholarship, which allowed her to travel to Alaska and volunteer with the Northern Alaska Environmental Center. Paloma earned a Master in Landscape Architecture from Harvard's Graduate School of Design, where she worked as a teaching assistant for both Gary Hilderbrand and Zaneta Hong. In addition to landscape architecture, she has studied product design, focusing on furniture design, as well as urban ecology and ecological restoration.

Paloma joined MVVA in 2015.
