Roberto Ransom
Senior Designer
Roberto grew up in Chihuahua, Mexico, at the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains. His understanding of cultural landscapes has been shaped by the experience of living in several cities around Mexico, the U.S., and Germany. He credits his participation in the Caballo Blanco marathon in Urique, Mexico as a watershed moment in his understanding of the socioecological realm of landscape. Roberto has experience working on projects driven by local communities in rural Mexico, which has taught him to engage with sites through an ethnographic and historical lens. Roberto is working on the Piers Park III project in the Boston Harbor, as well as the Port Lands Flood Protection project in Toronto, where he is working alongside First Nation consultants to integrate their knowledge into the project’s design.

Roberto received an architecture degree at Tecnológico de Monterrey. He earned a Master of Landscape Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, where he received grants to work for the Critical Landscapes Lab and the Mexican Cities Initiative. Before joining MVVA, Roberto worked at the architecture firm JSa in Mexico City. In his spare time, Roberto enjoys camping, mountain biking, running, and skiing.
