Ms. Robles, a Jr. Landscape Architect, joined the firm in June of 2017. She graduated with a Bachelor and Masters of Landscape Architecture from Rutgers University, in New Brunswick, NJ.
She is involved in several phases of project development with MKW. She is most involved with Dundee Island Park in Passaic, New Jersey and playground rehabilitation for various NYCHA sites throughout Brooklyn and Queens. She has also had a hand in the preparation of the Master Plan Proposal for Highbridge Park, an Anchor Park in New York City. For this project, Ms. Robles analyzed different aspects of the Highbridge Park and helped develop diagrams to help the community and government officials better understand their park. She is also highly active in the beginning stages of a project in Morningside Park located in Harlem, NY. She has helped facilitate community meetings and developed presentation graphics to present at these meetings.
Ms. Robles’s masters thesis was a theoretical redesign of the Wingate High School campus, located in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York. The project aimed at combating the effects of community violence and a desolate city landscape on a specific high school. This project looked at theories of community violence and its effects on the personal identities of children in dense, urban inner city areas and how that violence affected their view of themselves and the world around them.
