MaFe’s journey into landscape architecture began relatively recently, when from botany she began to feel the need to participate in the world-making and to propose, through design, spaces to re-establish reciprocal relationships between people and the environment. Her work’s approach is basically defined in 3 steps: 1) See the environment in which she is working and try to understand its complexities, 2) Follow her environmental and social philosophies and ethics: each design is a statement of values, 3) Propose alternatives to grow livable dreamed worlds.Her biggest inspiration are plants! MaFe’s life goals are to feel like plants and think like mountains.
