Elizabeth Turner, AIA

Elizabeth is an architect with a passion for design for higher education clients and educating others about sustainable design through presentations and design projects. Utilizing research to facilitate informed decision-making, her work aims to support sustainability goals while improving human health, equity, and student success. An advocate of participatory stakeholder engagement processes, she worked recently to gamify the complex prioritization surrounding campus resilience to foster informed discussion. Her thesis project for her MS in Sustainable Design at the University of Minnesota, Envisioning the Carbon Neutral Campus: Planning for Reduced Energy Consumption through Data Analysis and Visualization, explored ways to bridge the gap between architecture, planning, engineering, and education, and this has been the focus of her professional career.
