These private development projects have ranged in scale from dense urban sites to thousands of acres. His rural agricultural background has led to a strong understanding, beliefs, and work portfolio in large land preserves. He has served such diverse clients as the Rockefeller family, the Aga Khan Foundation in Central Asia, a family and government eco-tourism consortium for a national park in Cozumel, Mexico, and the City and Mayor of Santiago, Chile for Parque O’Higgins. He has also worked extensively with the large land resources of American colleges, universities, and land grant agricultural schools.
The design teams led by Ricardo have been recognized with planning and design awards from the American Institute of Architects, the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the Society for College and University Planning. He is a graduate of the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry and Syracuse University; and is the co-author of Mission and Place: Strengthening Learning and Community through Campus Design, published by Praeger Press.
