Lindsey Love, Assoc. AIA [Chair]

Lindsey is committed to incorporating natural and raw materials wherever possible in any project. She specializes in determining when, where, and how these materials can be the most appropriate and beautiful solution. She has balanced her design career with many seasons of construction work doing everything from framing to fine plastering, electrical work and management. Also an educator, Lindsey has led natural building workshops in North Carolina and was a visiting lecturer at Universidad de Valle de Mexico. She has a fierce belief that design makes and breaks communities and has substantial experience with tribal affordable housing.

Lindsey is currently in the process of taking exams for licensure in Idaho. In the winter, Lindsey is the high school nordic ski coach and in the summer she loves to trail run and backpack.
