The fun energy, great passion for architecture, and talented individuals that make up this great team.
While pursuing her master?s degree, Lisa focused her research on the urban fabric. She studied which features and factors created successful and unsuccessful areas in cities. She looked at shrinking cities and the causes of urban blight, as well as the opportunities than can come from urban decay.
Lisa believes in the importance of hand-drawing and sketching, both as a communication tool as well as an art form. Not a day goes by where she doesn’t sketch.
Lisa earned both her Bachelor of Science in Architecture and her Master of Architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
