Northern Avenue Bridge Winner: Rob Barella, ASLA

Rob Barella, ASLA was the only landscape architect among the eight winners of the Northern Avenue Bridge competition – and what a design concept he created. RB Northern Ave Bridge Park - Aerial View

Rob graduated from URI in 2014 and moved from Newport, Rhode Island (native) to Connecticut to work for a design-build firm, and then moved to Boston in February 2015 to work for KZLA .

“My design angle was to create a park destination that also embraces the preservation of the bridge history, which I think are both core values found throughout our profession in particular.”

Congratulations, Rob!
