principal / design director Registered Landscape Architect # 5653, California With a background in architecture and landscape architecture, Rocio Gertler’s design expertise is wide in scope and breadth. A native of Mexico, Rocio is interested in understanding the cultural environment, protecting the earth’s resources, and setting strategies to perpetuate the quality of open spaces. Rocio has worked in architecture and landscape architecture offices in both Mexico and the United States. She interned at the firm of Workshop Ken Smith in New York, NY and while at the offices of James Burnett she completed work on Texas Tech Health Sciences Building in Houston, TX; the Salk Institute Expansion in La Jolla, CA; and the uban lid Klyde Warren Park in Dallas, TX. At Spurlock Poirier her experience ranged from project manager to senior designer until she became an associate principal in 2012, responsible for the office design quality control. Rocio completed multiple residential, commercial, institutional and urban planning projects such as the Santa Monica, CA new branch library, in San Diego the Wedge Phase 4, Biomed II, and ECHS Parking Structure for the University of California., the East Village Park, the SD&G Innovation Center, & several life science office buildings. In the planning scale, Rocio completed a Master Plan & Construction Book for all site improvements for the new comunity of Las Mercedes outside Guatemala City and the Mercado del Barrio in San Diego. Streetscape projects include India Street Ph 2, the New Children Museum Park as part of the Martin Luther King Promenade, 14th Street Promenade as part of the Downtown San Diego Public Open Space Implementation Plan in San Diego and the promenade at West Village Blvd. Units in UC Davis. In 2013 she opened her own practice founded in the principles of the collaborative process of UNDERSTANDing a site specific environment, finding its LINKage to the broader grid, and TRANSFORMing it into a meaningful space for the people and its context. Her current projects range from San Diego County residences, to on-grade and on-structure commercial buildings to commercial-residential mixed use developments.

sustainability, wellness & connectivity The flagship 24 acre laboratory for life-science innovation is nestled above native canyons at the end of a cul-de-sac with a panoramic view. The architecture and site blend to create a series of unique outdoor plazas that break down the scale and connect the rustic canyon to the public environment. The low water use planting and innovative storm water collection educate the user on sustainable practices and two organic gardens provide a true ‘farm to table’ experience for the signature campus bistro.
