Design for a better world drives Nino’s passion as a landscape designer. Growing up on a farm informed his love and appreciation for nature and wildlife. It also helped him observe the landscapes around him more critically, imaging what type of response or solution would enhance it. Nino graduated from Mapua University in Manila, Philippines, where he acquired a bachelor’s degree in architecture specializing in urban design. As the landscape designer and CAD (Computer Aided Drafting) technician at the Nadi Group, Nino assists the team in researching concepts, benchmarks, bylaw and zoning regulations, products, materials and design precedents. He also provides CAD support, graphic design, and perspective renderings, an undertaking that Nino enjoys because he sees how the project will turn out in real life.
