Mariana Lavezzo


Associate, Studio Leader
Pre K-12 + Community Education Design Studio

“I focus on working with communities globally to create ecologically sensitive developments that promote personalized learning for the Conceptual Age of the 21st Century with strong connections to the community. My experience in architecture includes teaching, research in sustainable design for schools, as well as research in the realm of social, cultural and psychological factors in architecture. Being a lifelong learner has allowed me to continually bring best practice thinking to the master planning, programming and design of public and private schools as well as international schools.”
