Edmundo Colon MLA ’06 is one of six selected to receive a 2020-2021 LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership. Fellows are granted $25,000 to pursue a project of their choosing over 12 weeks in the coming year. Entering its fourth year, the fellowship allows participants to engage in “a yearlong journey to develop their leadership capacity and work on ideas that have the potential to create positive and profound change in the profession, the environment, and humanity.”

Colon currently serves as Principal at ECo in San Juan, Puerto Rico. His project, “El Río está vivo … y nadie lo sabe! (The River is alive… and nobody knows!): Re-envisioning Flood Control in the Urban Watershed of the Río Piedras,” will focuses on ways in which landscape architects can help create a more resilient post-hurricane Maria Puerto Rico.
