Matt Romero is a landscape designer inspired by creating transformative public places for communities to enjoy. As a student, Matt embraced the potential for landscape architecture to offer environmental justice solutions while working on a project in Santa Ana to provide public open space for an underserved community along a proposed light rail corridor. He is interested in providing sustainable, impactful environments through socially and ecologically sensitive, community-driven design. Matt’s musical background facilitates attention to creative detail and a collaborative ethos that he brings to a variety of projects at Studio-MLA – from master planning and parks to mixed use residential and corporate campuses. Matt is the board chair of From Lot to Spot, a local nonprofit that provides disadvantaged communities with healthy public spaces that are the direct result of effective community engagement.
