John Olivo is a licensed Landscape architect in New Jersey and began practicing in 2000. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Landscape Architecture from the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (Cook College), Rutgers University. He has also been recognized by the United States Green Building Council, as a LEED accredited professional. John has collaborated on a wide range of projects applying a combination of innovative and traditional solutions to design and planning challenges. John’s deep interests in art, natural systems, and design dovetail into the cradle of landscape architecture and its role in design. His experiences traveling abroad have allowed him to see how different cultures and communities address various design challenges; the same challenge can be solved in many ways. The interactions between art, science, and nature produce our culture; the ever-changing ecosystem that has shaped our past, present, and will shape our future. John knows that these interactions lead to constantly evolving possibilities for us to flourish as communities and individuals. The road to true sustainability begins with the individual. John sees landscape architecture as playing a vital role in the design collaborative that can mesh technical, ecological, aesthetic and logistical needs; creating holistic solutions that are equitable and sustainable for nearly any challenge. These ideals and adaptive methodologies guide John in the search for a better design. I do not think the measure of a civilization is how tall its buildings of concrete are, But rather how well its people have learned to relate to their environment and fellow man. ~ Sun Bear of the Chippewa Tribe
