Gabriel Caballero’s career has led him to specialize increasingly in the design of landscape architecture projects with a high level of complexity due to the project’s scale and design ambition. His involvement with projects like Gardens by the Bay, a 54-hectare modern green oasis in the heart of Singapore, Hamilo Coast, an ecological tourism development south of Manila, Philippines, and Nanjing Hexi Waterfront, a landscape design for a river front revitalization project in Nanjing, China best illustrates his design involvements. Gabriel is focused on designing spaces that are fun and poetic but at the same time culturally and environmentally responsive. He finds thrill in projects that are designed with creative vigour but elegantly expressed and executed.
Gabriel has designed spaces from conceptual development to construction administration for projects in parts of the Asian region like the Philippines, Singapore and China. Aside from his work as a landscape architect, he has also lead his previous company in improving its work efficiency by evaluating the company’s technical standards and helping it build a team of people who are responsible in making a positive change in the processes and execution of work.
He is now in the process of integrating my knowledge of landscape architecture to a bigger work in the field of cultural and natural heritage. My future aim is to be able to design and implement plans for the protection and development of heritage properties in Asia where there is a need for sustainable management and holistic planning approach.
