Lisa Laue – Designer

Lisa Laue was born in the former East Germany, and moved to the United States as a child with her scientist parents.  She travelled extensively as a child, splitting her time between the Bay Area and Virginia.  While studying architecture and structural engineering at Rennelaer Polytechnic Institute, she spent a semester in India.  

One of her long-term interests has been the design of science facilities, perhaps because she grew up in a family of scientists.  She is also committed to sustainable design, and is a Passive House Certified Designer.  Lisa is fascinated by ways to integrate and express structure in architectural design.

Lisa's recent projects include designing the biotechnology lab prep room at City College of San Francisco; modernizing James Lick Middle School in San Francisco; and working on the design of the San Francisco International Airport International Terminal Holdrooms.
