Camila Zablah
Senior Designer / Planner

"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."
Camila is an urban planner with a background in traditional architecture. She has experience in both public and private sectors, across a variety of project types and scales. It was the introduction to urbanism during her architecture studies that made her realize how much of a bigger impact there can be to improve people’s lives at a much larger scale, focusing on all the elements that make up a city, rather than just its individual buildings. Having grown up in a Latin American country with cities generally unfamiliar to careful planning, she became aware of the great potential there is in improving them and consequently, improving people’s quality of life as well.

background / experience / Vision /

Camila moved from her native El Salvador to the United States to obtain an Architecture Degree from the University of Notre Dame. She worked as an architectural designer in Chicago until the allure of warmer weather and proximity to her family prompted her to move to Miami. She is grateful to have had the opportunity to join the creative and vibrant team at Plusurbia and begin her career as an urban planner.

Since joining Plusurbia, Camila served on the team that produced the APA Florida award winning Little Havana Revitalization Plan and Coconut Grove Village Master Plan, and aided in several feasibility studies in Wynwood after the adoption of the NRD. She manages ongoing planning and zoning consulting services for the Village of El Portal and has also assisted with the research and writing of numerous historic preservation survey reports and designation reports.

It is no surprise that the world is facing a climate crisis, which if not met with the right preparedness, could very well create additional crises, the worst of which is a deteriorating collective human health. As planners, we need to be able to provide the right tools to cities to be prepared to face these challenges. Having recently pursued studies in Urban Sustainability and Resilience, Camila looks forward to aiding with mitigation and adaptation to the current and future challenges that our communities face.
