MFLA Landscape Architect


Marta Fry Landscape Associates is a San Francisco-based urban design and landscape architecture studio founded in 1990 by Marta Fry.  Believing that landscapes are one of the most potent and lasting forms of cultural expression, Fry leads the Studio in the exploration of the intersections and complex relationships between environmental, social, and cultural systems. Trained in landscape architecture and urban design, Fry graduated from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design with a MLA coupled with an undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies and Planning. For Fry the field of landscape architecture encompasses the interweaving of art and science and provides an opportunity to work on widely diverse scales, from larger master planning visions and designs for urban infill and re-development districts to finer-grained singular design commissions. Based in San Francisco, the native Californian finds the Bay Area fertile grounds for exploration and innovation “it’s a region with a rich history of invention, a fertile and creative environment that transects disciplines and coupled with San Francisco’s cultural diversity, provides a rich milieu from which to draw.” For her, California continues to be a creatively emergent and progressive environment.

MFLA’s work is widely published and the Studio has garnered numerous awards from the AIA and ASLA. Fry actively participates in design juries and has taught design studios at Harvard’s GSD and UC Berkeley’s School of Environmental Design.



Adriano Paganini grew up near Milan where his father was a tailor. More interested in food than fabric, he enrolled in culinary school, and managed to become an apprentice to world famous French chef/restaurateur Paul Bocuse.

After his apprenticeship, Adriano spent time cooking in London, and then in San Francisco, before opening the first chef-driven full-service fast-casual restaurant in America at the age of 27. Pasta Pomodoro was the inspiration for the entire fast casual dining segment of the industry that has since spawned hundreds of concepts.

A master at understanding and reading contemporary culture, Adriano’s track record in both creating and exploiting trends, of identifying the right concept in a particular location, and his history of finding and preserving relationships with talented people are what have led to the success of the restaurants in his current San Francisco-based restaurant group: Belga; Beretta; Delarosa; El Techo de Lolinda; Lolinda; Starbelly; Super Duper Burger; Uno Dos Tacos.
