Owner: Florida A & M University
Project Landscape Architect:

Dr. Matthew M. Powers, ASLA

Project Category: Research & Communication
Project Description:

This study proposes an alternative to conventional design that respects culture and the environment by merging theories of ecological planning with Inca planning, design, and construction practices. The study supports not only a return to less technologically dependent methods of construction, but a renewed interest in indigenous design and planning methods.

Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Garden

Coconut Grove, FL






Landscape Architecture Firm: Raymond Jungles, Inc.
Owner: Ella Fontanals-Cisneros
Project Landscape Architect:

Raymond Jungles, FASLA

Project Category: Residential
Project Description:


Roof gardens are intimidating. Much liability comes with complex issues, e.g. condo association guidelines, structural bearing capacity, waterproofing, and hurricane codes. Add to that those architectural elements that were scaled to read as the terminus for a 34 story building, along with a poorly conceived partially completed swimming pool. Those issues, the salt and wind exposure, an occasional hurricane, and the lack of growing medium were other critical concerns. The sense of garden and comfort are primarily provided by garden architecture through materials, textures, and human scale proportions.

Anagrethel & Samuel Lewis Garden
Panama City, Panama



Landscape Architecture Firm: Raymond Jungles, Inc.
Owner: Anagrethel & Samuel Lewis
Project Landscape Architect:

Raymond Jungles, FASLA

Project Category: Residential
Project Description:

Creating gardens in a foreign land, where a different language is spoken can be a challenging task. When the property is of an unusual shape with mostly steep terrain, surrounded by large scale residences, the task is compounded. Dominating the site from the crest of the slopes, the grand scale residence was designed by the wife’s father. Melding the architecture and the garden became one of the biggest challenges in a city that had no established nursery or landscape construction industry. Changes to the proposed architecture would help. Most challenging was convincing the architect that the changes were needed while keeping peace in the family.
