Landscape Designer, MASLA candidate (UBC), registered Architect and Urbanist in Brazil
With more than 10 years of professional practice before coming to Canada, Patricia was a registered architect and urbanist in her home country Brazil. She then moved to Canada in 2018 to pursue a master’s degree in Advanced Studies in Landscape Architecture (MASLA) at UBC. Her research focuses on green infrastructure, water management and regenerative design.
Joining the M2 Landscape Architecture team in 2019, she brings her extensive sustainable expertise and comprehensive knowledge of architecture, urban and landscape design, as well as the ability to deliver her creativity through graphics and technical design programs.
She has been a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) for UBC’s “Regenerative Design and Development” MEL course, and a GTA for ENDS course “Sustainability by Design.” She was also a co-lecturer at the Integrated Sciences course “ISCI 360 Systems Approaches to Regional Sustainability”, as well as a guest reviewer and volunteer at the Urbanarium Hackathon.
Patricia enjoys her life outdoors while she is not working, studying or teaching, exploring the beautiful scenery and the local landscape by hiking and exercising in parks and connected with nature. She also volunteers her time for sustainable initiatives and various animal rescue institutions in BC. Recently, she has adopted Poppy, a rescued dog and the new M2 team pup.
