Mary Waelder, AIA, LEED AP BD+C

Mary earned a professional degree in architecture from Rice University. As a registered architect, she has experience with public, commercial, and residential projects. She finds inspiration in the shoestring productions of theatrical companies and seeks to bring the same blend of creative thinking and practicality to her design work. When not practicing architecture, Mary can be found volunteering at theatre events, drawing comics, or petting dogs and cats.

Lively engagement results in extraordinary places.
