Presenter Bio:

Arnaldo Cardona holds a bachelor's of environmental design from the School of Architecture at the University of Puerto Rico and a bachelor's of urban landscape architecture from the City College of New York. He earned his master’s in art and art education degree at Teachers College, Columbia University, and was awarded a bilingual special education program scholarship from the New York Department of Education. Arnaldo’s degrees enabled him to secure professional teaching licenses in fine art, bilingual education, special education, and English as a second language.

He has served as an adjunct professor teaching art courses at the Interamerican University and later as Supervisor of Landscape Restoration and Conservationist at the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture, the agency that manages the landmark and historic buildings on the island. 

He has led the coordination of curriculum writing programs for teachers at architecture schools. This experience enabled him to write grants and network with different arts organizations, including the American Institute of Architects, Learning by Design Program, and the Salvadori Center, later working for the latter two. At the Salvadori Center, he became an Architect-Educator and worked with schools in New York City, developing daytime and after school programs using the built environment as a theme.

An ASLA member since 2005, Arnaldo is currently serving on the ASLA Committee in Education and is chairing the subcommittee on K-12 Education to support the vision of the ASLA Career Discovery program. Arnaldo has also been a member of the Institute of Landscape Architects of Puerto Rico since 1999. 

With his repertoire of experiences in curriculum design in the areas of art, architecture and landscape architecture, Arnaldo is now focused on publishing his lessons and learning experiences, with the goal of recognizing landscape architecture as an art discipline and as an ideal theme for curriculum design.
