Bob’s projects are a culmination of the best ideas in landscape architecture, planning, theming, entertainment and real estate development. Under his leadership, his team has envisioned a design and business model so unique in creative integrity and guest amenities that it is touted as “ahead of its time.” His principles include the use of authentic and indigenous materials, establishing points of entry and offering guests alternatives. During his tenure with EDSA, Bob has been actively involved in a variety of projects ranging from large-scale land planning and resort assignments to urban mixed-use developments internationally based and throughout the U.S.

“Our role is about more than design – it’s about creating a way of seeing, doing, believing and behaving. Our most successful work captures the big ideas within the smallest of design details.”
