Bachelor of Architecture, Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico

Vivian Maldonado joins Hickok Cole’s housing team with a Bachelor’s degree in architecture and a Master’s degree in landscape architecture – both from the Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico – as well as a background in multifamily design. Vivian grew up in the Cataño area on the northern coast of Puerto Rico “near the Bacardi building.” The Caribbean landscape encouraged her to get her Master’s in landscape architecture. At home, Vivian loves recreating a tropical oasis that reminds her of her roots –most recently, she’s taken up aquascaping, and has a medium size avocado plant currently growing in water!

As if architecture + landscape wasn’t enough, Vivian was a professional dancer for 16 years, trained in Spanish dance. Vivian now lives in DC with her husband and their 50-pound dog Luna.
