Sarah Diamond
Senior Designer
Sarah is originally from Miami, where she grew up climbing banyan trees, trying to catch lizards, and harvesting mangoes, avocados, and lychees. Sarah's perspective on landscape architecture is influenced by the places she has lived and the communities she has been a part of. In Miami, she experienced both the beauty and the might of nature, as when hurricanes snapped trees in half or knocked power out for weeks. She has also lived and worked as a carpenter, farm laborer, and artist, traveling across the United States. In Somersworth, New Hampshire, she spent her weekends swimming in the deep kettle ponds left by retreating glaciers. In Corrales, New Mexico, she picked squash in a field facing east toward the Sandias Mountains that turn pink and orange at sunset with the reflection of the sky and clouds. She believes that landscape architecture plays a central role in the projects of individual, communal, and societal well-being.

Sarah received a Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Studio Art from Swarthmore College and a Master of Landscape Architecture from Harvard Graduate School of Design. She also paints portraits and landscapes, primarily working in oil and watercolor. Sarah joined MVVA in 2019.
