Julia is a LEED accredited professional. Her work has always been governed by a desire to integrate ecological, social and economic sustainability in a well thought out product. She believes in the value of an interdisciplinary response to issues facing the natural and built environments. This belief has led to a number of theoretical and built projects including: Detroit ONE – Analysis and proposal of a low cost, effective alternative to the strained public transit system in Detroit, MI, Packard 2050 – A study of post-industrial bio and phytoremediation of the former Packard Plant in Detroit, MI and Ten Friends Diner – An interior redesign project developed using principles of Evidence Based Design (EBD), for a non-for-profit mental health organization in Windsor, ON.
Julia describes her approach to design and problem solving as common sense supported by common courtesy alluding to the need for sensible, functional solutions that respect the individual, society and the natural world equally.
