Angelica Rockquemore

Planner/Landscape Designer

Years Experience: 4

Angelica Rockquemore joined HHF in 2014. As recipient of the Fulbright Fellowship Award, she spent one year conducting research and design work exploring Japanese garden preservation practices in Kyoto, Japan. Following her year of study and exploration, Angelica attended the University of Washington where she received a Master of Landscape Architecture degree with an emphasis in Urban Ecological Design. During her studies of Landscape Architecture, she worked for the State of Hawai’i Historic Preservation Department conducting archival research and analyses for a Cultural Landscape Report for the Harold L. Lyon Arboretum. She also studied Urban Design at the University of Auckland’s Master of Urban Design Program in New Zealand and completed her Master’s thesis on designing outdoor play areas in Maori language immersion preschools, Te Kōhanga Reo. With her previous work experience in public sector community planning offices in Portland, Angelica contributed her site planning and landscape design skills in creating neighborhood concept development plans. Her skill in ethnographic research and writing has also contributed toward Historic Preservation projects for the State of Hawai’i.

The quote “to know who you are, you have to have a place to come from,” by Carson McCullers has remained the foundation and mantra for all of Angelica’s educational and professional experiences. She continuously strives to find creative ways to share the stories of people and their places through her work in design and planning.
