Joshua Rosen is a licensed landscape architect practicing in Los Angeles for over 15 years. Before starting his own practice Joshua spent 12 years with Mark Tessier Landscape Architecture where he was involved in all aspects of projects from design to project planning, implementation and management. As a licensed landscape architect, he is passionate about the use of a diverse, climactically-appropriate plant palette, sustainable design practices and environmentally sensitive solutions to projects. Joshua holds a master’s degree in landscape architecture from the University of Arizona and undergraduate majors from Northwestern in philosophy and organizational change. He combines these perspectives to design environments that have artistic, sustainable and social integrity.
Desire to serve the community lead Joshua to both teach at the UCLA Landscape Extension program and serve on the Santa Monica Architectural Review Board where he contributes his expertise in landscape architecture, design, and plant materials as the only sitting licensed landscape architect. Finally, a lifelong passion for tillandsia (airplants) lead Joshua to found Airplantman in 2012, a company focused exclusively on custom installations and California-made products designed specifically for tillandsia. Airplantman installations can be seen throughout Southern California and the world and has been featured in numerous publications.
