Mario Schjetnan

Mario Schjetnan

Inspired by the pre-Columbian myth and colonial history of his native Mexico, as well as twentieth century art at home and abroad, Mario Schjetnan has emerged as one of the contemporary world’s most versatile and accomplished landscape architects. His work ranges from creating housing and parks for the urban poor to the design and environmental restoration of Mexico City’s Xochimilco Ecological Park which dates back to the 10th century.

Schjetnan started his firm Grupo de Diseno Urbano (GDU) in 1977 and has since then won many awards including: 2008 ASLA General Design Honor Award and the Green Prize in Urban Design from Harvard University. Schjetnan has lectured at U.C. Berke-ley, Harvard University, and was director of the School of Landscape Architecture at the University of Arizona, Tucson from 1999 to 2001.
