Among his most recognized works are the Parque Tezozomoc in Mexico City, the El Cedazo Park in Aguascalientes, and Parque Ecológico Xochimilco, for which the firm was awarded Harvard GSD’s Veronica Rudge Green Prize in 1996. Other landscape projects include Union Point Park in Oakland, California and, most recently, the transformation of a PEMEX oil refinery in Mexico City.
