Guy Champin

Senior Associate


Guy was born and raised in Santiago, Chile, amidst mountains and rivers. The country’s unique geography prompted Guy to explore its diverse landscapes from Patagonia to the Atacama Desert, and everything in between. As an avid cyclist, climbing the mountains of the Chilean Andes, he was raised as an outdoor person.

Guy received an Architecture degree from Universidad Finis Terrae in Chile on 2008, where he is a licensed Architect. Prior to joining RJI, he has worked on diverse transportation infrastructure projects that include airports, bus stations, and urban design. Although he was initially trained as an Architect, Guy felt that he was losing his connection with nature during the early years of his career, which prompted him to make the transition into Landscape Architecture. In 2015, Guy received a Master of Landscape Architecture degree from Cornell University, and joined RJI that same year. At RJI, he is a Senior Associate who is responsible for orchestrating all efforts for projects from conceptualization through construction. The potential of living systems to improve life on multiple levels, and our ability to understand and implement these improvements is what motivates him to continue learning throughout his career.

While not at the studio, Guy spends his time biking, photographing, or tinkering with some type of technology. Computers and technology have always been a big part of Guy’s life, and he’s always looking for ways to integrate it with the profession.
