Founder of Marpa Design Studio, graduated from Yale University and has trained extensively with Japanese master gardeners both in the U.S. and Japan. He has designed and built private and public gardens in the Rocky Mountains and throughout the U.S. for 35 years, which have been recognized for their unsurpassed artistry as well as technical excellence.
In addition to his responsibilities at Marpa, Mosko is abbot of Hakubai Temple, co-author of the book Landscape As Spirit: Creating a Contemplative Garden, and travels the country lecturing on garden design, the art of rock setting, photography, and meditation.
A licensed Landscape Architect, graduated from The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) with degrees in Fine Arts and Landscape Architecture. In addition to his continued studies in Construction Science and Management at Colorado State University, Luke has been designing and overseeing the construction of private and public projects in Colorado for over 10 years. He brings the utmost creativity, project planning, and honed construction management skills to every one of his projects. From large-scale residential and TOD work, to small, intimate spaces, Luke strives to create environments that not only respond to his client’s needs with sensitivity, but also, to create landscapes that blur the boundaries between design, art, and construction. This results in a legacy of built, richly designed places. Luke believes that a Landscape Architect’s ability to orchestrate experience on multiple levels leads to environments that engage the senses and spirit.

Growing up on the countryside of Austria, Christoph has spent most of his life outdoors, skiing in the Alps and mountain biking in the Bohemian forest.
Before coming to Colorado, and making the slopes and trails even more crowded, Christoph worked as a landscape designer in the Hamptons on Long Island, NY. A Masters degree in Landscape Architecture and Planning from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria, combined with business studies it allows him to approach projects from economic and environmental perspectives.
The newest addition to the Marpa team, he wants to create complex, sustainable and evolving landscapes that combine important ecosystem services and offer beautiful environments by implementing innovative design and diverse plantings.
Currently pursuing a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Colorado Denver, Jake is delighted to be an intern at Marpa. After earning a degree in Sustainable Landscape Horticulture from the University of Vermont, Jake found his way out west, captivated by its majesty. By immersing himself in Colorado’s vast openness, Jake has honed a deeper understanding of the emotional value of physical space. Exploring this relationship subsequently sparked Jake’s ardent interest in spatial design.
Jake’s professional horticultural experience includes curating a botanic garden, customer service at garden centers, xeriscape planting design, landscape installation, and rooftop farming. A naturally adept “Jack of all trades,” he finds his skills and passions intersect in the landscape, creating spaces that harbor exploratory discovery and healing.
