Mr. Juan P. Caceres, ATA’s Senior Landscape Architect and Principal of Santiago Office, lately takes a new responsibility as the vice-president of International Federation of Landscape Architects, Chilean Chapter (ICHAP-IFLA). He is going to achieve three main goals in his term: (1) to get access to ICHAP resources in terms of visibility. He had signed an open letter addressed to the Santiago governor and other authorities to underscore the value of public spaces as an asset pointing out the risks involved by recent projects on public transportation; (2) to access a broader connection network internationally, and (3) to improve the quality of landscape architects’ work conditions in Chile.
Over the last 20 years, Mr. Caceres has worked on different types of projects in the United States and Chile. Since 2011, he has been actively involved in projects in China as chief designer, and tutoring and training young professionals in ATA Beijing office.
The mission of International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) is to promote the landscape architecture profession within a collaborative partnership of the allied built-environment professions, demanding the highest standards of education, training, research and professional practice, and providing leadership and stewardship in all matters.
