Ana Cristina Garcia
Ana Cristina Garcia comes to landscape architecture through a fusion of interests in urban design, planning, and her experiences of the built environment. She is a firm believer in the power of the way we design and build our cities, neighborhoods, and streets to beautifully and positively define our experiences of the places we call home. Ana’s passion is in designing spaces that serve as a catalyst for positive change in their communities to create a sense of belonging. She particularly enjoys the challenge posed by landscape architecture in juggling the large-scale conceptual alongside the meticulously detailed, the practical project limitations with the poetics of a site, and social experience with the careful curation of wild systems.
Ana received her MLA from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts dual-degree in Architectural Studies and Latin American Studies from Hobart and William Smith Colleges where her honors thesis explored the application of landscape architecture as a tool for placemaking in a post-industrial small city.
Ana is at home when surrounded by trees or perched on a rock ledge while camping, hiking, or climbing.
