A native of Marburg, Germany, Lisa studied architecture at the HafenCity University in Hamburg, with her thesis focusing on Toronto’s PATH system. Now based in Toronto, Lisa explores themes of “urban mapping”, and has hosted guided tours of the city’s walkway systems and architectural landmarks on behalf of the Toronto Society of Architects and Jane’s Walk. Through her architectural research and practice, she highlights and documents the differences between American and European building technologies, urban planning strategies, and design.
As Associate, Lisa acts a technical resource and manages such commercial and institutional projects as the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts, as well as residential renovations, additions and interiors including Westminster Residence and Tree House. Lisa is currently overseeing the Contract Administration for the Nathan Phillips Square Revitalization at Toronto City Hall. In 2011, Lisa’s project Verotung placed first in the Junge Architekten Zeichnen competition, earning her a Fellowship Grant. Her research and drawings have been published in On Site Review, Spacing, and Stadtaspekte.
