Roberto Rovira, Chair of FIU Landscape Architecture + Urban Design, has been selected by The Architectural League of NY as one of the 2015 Emerging Voices!
The Architectural League’s annual Emerging Voices Award spotlights North American individuals and firms with distinct design “voices” that have the potential to influence the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design. The jury reviews significant bodies of realized work and considers accomplishments within the design and academic communities. The work of each Emerging Voice represents the best of its kind, and addresses larger issues within architecture, landscape, and the built environment. This year’s jury included Cynthia Davidson, Susannah Drake, Mario Gooden, Louise Harpman, Paul Lewis, Toshiko Mori, Thomas Phifer, and Billie Tsien. Emerging Voices is organized by League Program Director Anne Rieselbach. (Source: The Architectural League of NY)
