Dominique Elie
Senior Associate,

I’ve been with LMSA since 2013 because the social/environmental focus aligns with my own passions.

LMSA’s exclusive work with the nonprofit sector is atypical for an architecture firm; but we don’t stop at social justice, we also layer on environmental stewardship and high-quality design. Before architecture, I worked in community engagement, and now, after a decade of practice, I get to bring my two interests together: lending my experience in a grass roots participatory design processes into my daily architectural designs. An inclusive, collaborative process in the studio and with the community leads to good design and good buildings. The studio has grown so much since I started, and there is room to keep growing and changing.
