Recognizing that the urgent issues facing contemporary urban centers, communities, and the natural environment can best be solved with bold, collaborative action, Marvel Architects has transformed its practice into a collective of interdisciplinary research and design teams with architecture and landscape architecture experts at the helm. In a reflection of its deep bench of talent and holistic design approach, the firm’s name has changed to Marvel Architects, Landscape Architects, Urban Designers, PLLC. With offices in New York City and San Juan, Puerto Rico, the firm is practicing under its shortened name, Marvel.

As a key part of this strategy, Marvel is formalizing its commitment to landscape architecture by promoting landscape architects Yadiel Rivera-Diaz, ASLA, and Tyler Silvestro, ASLA, to partner.

Yadiel Rivera-Díaz
Bringing more than 15 years of experience in the design of public spaces to Marvel, Yadiel Rivera-Díaz, PLA, joined the firm in 2017. A passionate practitioner of multidisciplinary design with an interest in investigating the intersection of opposing elements, he oversees open-space master plans and landscape projects for the studio. He is currently managing the Bronx Point development, set on the Harlem River. Yadiel holds Master of Landscape Architecture and Master of Architecture degrees from the University of Pennsylvania.

Tyler Silvestro

With a background in civil engineering and architectural journalism, Tyler Silvestro, PLA, joined Marvel in 2018. Working with cities, community advocates, and non-profit developers, he focuses on how shared landscapes impact social and cultural connections, a perspective he is now applying to the re-imaging of the Union Square Park District. Tyler earned a Master of Landscape Architecture degree from the Spitzer School of Architecture at the City College of New York.
