“I believe every place is a beautiful mosaic made of small moments of beauty. The beauty is a result of the expression of human life. As a design profession, we have the opportunity and responsibility to absorb, preserve, and build upon the unique beauty of a place with the community.”
As a Rose Fellow, I am excited for the opportunity to work outside the realm of traditional practice to be a participant within the larger network of place-making systems and work with the community to preserve and build upon the unique beauty of the neighborhoods.
With Burten, Bell, Carr Development, Inc. (BBC), Emily will support in advancing transformative projects for the community: advancing the vision for the redevelopment of Cedar Avenue, the development of affordable senior housing, and access to nature within the neighborhood.
Prior to the fellowship, Emily worked in Kansas City at BNIM Architects and Odimo Architects. She holds a Masters of Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis, and a Bachelors from the University of Kentucky.
