WORK EXPERIENCE RESEARCH COORDINATOR | UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA / PUNTA CANA ECOLOGICAL FOUNDATION | SUMMER 2016

CARLITOS2812@UFL.EDU (786) 234-4398 What draws me to landscape architecture is the ability to design inclusive spaces that benefit both people and the environment, and make for more livable and attractive urban spaces. This is what I strive to achieve through my work and what I aspire to do through my career as a landscape architect.

Through a study abroad program led by Dr. Jocelyn Widmer, I was part of a group of students that developed a survey to be administered in the Veron Punta Cana area of the Dominican Republic. The survey was designed to gauge the necessities of a community lacking access to essential services, and to collect information on conditions of infrastructure such as roads, sidewalks, parks and public spaces. Once the survey was completed and after I translated it to Spanish, I was asked by Dr. Widmer to coordinate survey distribution with a graduate student. This consisted of collaborating with community leaders, training volunteers, interviewing community members and leaders, personally conducting surveys, monitoring results and translating from Spanish to English. INTERN | URBAN PARADISE GUILD | NOVEMBER 2013 – JANUARY 2015 As an intern of Urban Paradise Guild I regularly led groups of volunteers in various activities including urban forestry and agriculture. Groups ranged from a handful of people to large groups of 20 or more. I participated invv special projects planning and designing plantings for the organization, most notably the design of a multimodal park situated under the Miami Metro Rail; M-Path Park (now absorbed into the larger Underline project). TEACHER | ENGLISH SPOT DORAL | FEBRUARY 2015 – JULY 2015 I taught private and group English classes for people of varying ages, backgrounds, professions etc. My job required building rapport with new students in an intimate setting several times a day. I would assess the level of my students’ English and cater to their individual strengths and weaknesses while encouraging learning through positive affirmations.

This page shows the process of digitally composing a photorealistic rendering. The skeleton of the image was modeled on Sketchup and the rest was done on Photoshop. This image features some of my friends, family, and classmates enjoying an afternoon in Parque de Cabecera.


These images show a section cut through the center of the park and through the southern point showing the lake and interesting topographical changes in the park. Because this is an existing park in Spain, the measurements were estimated on Google Earth.

the orchards at p e n f i e l d The Orchards at Penfield is a conceptual proposal for a mixed use residential area of Penfield, New York. The design takes in to account the city’s goals for revitalizing a rural suburban area with a unique set of challenges such as an aging and dwindling population. My team’s proposal addresses these issues by providing a variety of housing options in differently zoned spaces for families of different socioeconomic levels linked by a network of open spaces for recreation and community events. The design also addresses more practical concerns such as adequate parking and vehicular circulation.

These images show the urban core of The Orchards. It is a mixed use commercial/residential area tied together through public spaces. The bird’s eye perspective shows the main park in this system. It provides a space for community activities such as food truck rallies and concerts.


residential design This residence is situated in a golf course community, the back yard overlooks the lake and golf tees. The client is a family of 5, the oldest of the children is 11. For the assignment we were given the freedom to assume the interests of the family, so for my design I wanted to include a skate-able sculptural element within the landscape. The result is a space made for entertaining featuring an outdoor kitchen and dining room, a pool, fire pit, hammock grove, raingarden, and a skateboard pump track that winds through the eastern side of the site and ends in the pool.

The main feature of this residential plan is the sculptural pump track walk. This shady passage features a skate-able pump track that weaves around the paved walk into the back yard.

Complex s p oSports rt s co mplex g r aGrading ding During our construction classes we’ve learned about grading, not only in a practical sense; learning how to get water to go where you want it to, or how to grade a field so it plays well, but also in the aesthetic sense, taking into account the visual impacts of how the landscape is manipulated. In this project I learned how to do just that.
