Chilean landscape architect. He began his studies in architecture at the University of Valparaíso (UCV). After two years, he moved to Santiago to continue his career at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC). In 1978 he was awarded the Young Architecture Prize at the Santiago Architecture Biennial. Later, with Hans Muhr, he won first place at the International Congress of Landscape Painting in Buenos Aires (1985), chaired by Roberto Burle Marx.
His career has positioned him as one of the most outstanding landscapers in Latin America, having designed and built nearly a thousand hectares of public and private gardens in Chile as well as in Argentina, Peru and Uruguay.
Its name is synonymous with parks and gardens highlighted by its exuberance, being this the answer to a work that promotes awareness and respect for natural environments, which seek to be incorporated as faithfully as possible into the forms of habitability.
Its gardens have been disseminated in numerous magazines and books on landscaping and architecture. He has also lectured in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Spain, Italy, Australia, New Zealand and London.
