Yadiel Rivera-Díaz joined Marvel in 2017 as the lead of its landscape architecture practice, where he has been in charge of managing open space, master plans, and landscape projects. He has over 13 years of experience as a landscape architect and three as an architect, designing open public spaces in the United States, Puerto Rico, and abroad.
Through his experience as a multidisciplinary designer, he has negotiated the intersection between landscape architecture, architecture, and urban design. He recently was the project manager in charge of the design and construction oversight of the first-ever open streetscape and park along the Las Vegas Strip, bringing back native desert vegetation and local materials to the streetscape of Las Vegas, while keeping its sense of wonder and excitement. He is currently developing the vision plan for Norris Square Park, a beloved community park in North Philadelphia, and a waterfront promenade project along the Harlem River in the Bronx.
