Vincent Agoe

Senior Landscape Designer

Holding a Master of City Planning and Landscape Architecture as well as an undergraduate degree in Urban Studies from the University of California, Berkeley, Vincent joins RELM to champion citymaking, specifically the role mobility plays in building culture. Born in Accra, Ghana, and raised in Inglewood, California, he acutely understands how proximity drives experience and that mobility patterns are essential to enjoy metropolises. He looks to marry policy and design to render urban centers that work—across scale and systems. Prior to joining RELM, Vincent served as project designer on new embassy and consulate campuses in Mexico, Morocco, Malawi, and South Sudan in addition to leading a handful of local projects in Portland: Bybee Lakes Helping Hands Outreach Center and Atomic Orchard Experiment building. During his graduate studies, he interned for San Francisco Public Works and HOK. Vincent looks to design compelling and connected public realms for disadvantaged communities, asserting landscape elevates perception and quality of life.

 'Proximity drives culture. Living in both Accra and Inglewood, cities I describe as organized chaos, you quickly understand that mobility patterns are essential if you want to enjoy the city at large. You need to create a series of destinations clustered together around transit.'
