An artist’s creative spirit, an affinity for logic, and a passionate tree advocate’s drive to shape a greener world find expression in Carla’s approach to landscape design. Raised in Canada and South Africa, she earned a Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting and Drawing at the Ontario College of Art and Design and studied mathematics and philosophy at the University of Toronto before entering the Master of Landscape Architecture program, also at the University of Toronto. After graduating with her MLA in 2015, she worked for PMA Landscape Architects Ltd, where she gained experience in public facilitation. In 2016, Carla joined PLANT’s studio as a Landscape Designer. She enjoys work that allows her to leverage her interdisciplinary experience, and she believes that landscape design succeeds best when materiality, history, and ecology are closely interconnected.
