The landscape of South East Louisiana has marked the life and professional career of William E. Roberts. As a child he learned to coexist, respect and enjoy the waterscapes of the Mississippi River Delta. This, in conjunction with his passion for exploring and traveling, has resulted in what he has become on a professional level: a steward of landscape architecture who combines creativity with the utmost respect for nature.
After completing his degree in Landscape Architecture from LSU Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture, William has developed his career over 11 years working on domestic and international projects. In 2009 his entrepreneurial spirit led him to create Nomad Studio, a landscape architecture and design studio, along with his partner, Laura Santín.
At Nomad Studio he has been able to let his professional and personal concerns and interests roam freely, creating unique experiences and places which foster a connection between people and landscape.
If there is one word for defining Laura, that would be curiosity. Her multiple travels and close relationship with the mountains and natural environment have created in her a special sensibility for submerging herself and understanding the landscape. A sensibility which has permeated her personal and professional life.
She earned a Bachelor’s in Agricultural Engineering and a Master’s in Landscape Architecture from the Polytechnic University of Madrid. Laura has developed her 15-year career mainly as a freelance professional organizing, managing and heading projects of various scales. This experience encompasses a wide spectrum which ranges from horticulture to the social and environmental implications of the built environment, through sustainable rural development, recreational trails, parks, plazas, and residential gardens.
After leaving Spain and moving to the United States, she founded Nomad Studio along with William Roberts in 2009. This is a business and personal enterprise in which each project has an ultimate objective: to understand the causes of the lack of connection between humans and nature and, consequently, promote a shift to bridge the disconnection.
