Miriam Garcia Garcia


She is a Ph.D in Architecture, a landscape architect, a town planner and urban designer, and principal of LANDLAB, based in Barcelona. She has been visiting professor at The University of Pennsylvania (US), Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana (CO) and the Polytechnic University of Milan (IT), as well as in several Spanish universities. Currently she is the Director of the Landscape Architecture Degree at the University Camilo José Cela in Madrid, and professor at the Master in Landscape Architecture Barcelona of the Polytechnic University of Calalunya and the Master in Urban Planning and Regional Studies of the National Institute of Public Administration, and is author of several publications.
Her practice focuses on urban design and regional planning from the perspective of landscape and resilience, with projects awarded both nationally and internationally like the First Prize in the XII Biennial of Spanish Architecture and Urbanism. Her professional expertise so far is a combination of the skills acquired while working in a regional government institution coupled with research and private practice. Her current motivation is to expand and share this knowledge to address pressing ecological and social challenges affecting fragile areas exposed to the most emblematic condition of the Anthropocene: global warming.
