About Rosa Zedek
Rosa joined OJB’s Philadelphia office full-time in 2020 after interning with the firm in 2019.

Focused on ecological systems and contemporary concerns, Rosa is committed to design that balances the needs of all living systems in her role as Project Designer. She is passionate about research in the field of landscape architecture, designing systems that mimic natural ecological processes, and the creation and protection of equitable urban landscapes. With her scientific grounding, Rosa is a central team member of OJB*lab, the firm’s innovation and research arm. In her spare time, she enjoys playing soccer, drawing, painting, and cooking.
