Jennifer Brooke, Principal
Jennifer is a founding partner and principal designer at Lemon Brooke, where her work explores the sensory impacts of the environment on the human experience. She brings a diverse architecture and art school education together with her experience in landscape architecture to a wide range of project types, including cultural institutions, academic campus plans, civic parks and children’s playgrounds. Her expertise as both an award winning-designer and the steadfast parent of a sensory and mobility challenged child are brought to bear on the challenges of creating aesthetically compelling and universally accessible spaces.
Jennifer has held a tenured teaching appointment at the University of California Berkeley and an adjunct faculty position in the Architecture Department at the California College of Art in San Francisco. Jennifer earned a BFA at Parsons School of Design in New York City and a MLA from Harvard University, in Cambridge MA, where she was awarded the Charles Elliot Traveling Fellowship for excellence in design, and the Thayer Award for academic excellence.
Prior to founding Lemon|Brooke, Jennifer worked as a senior designer in the office of Peter Walker and Partners in Berkeley, CA and Martha Schwartz, Inc. in Cambridge MA. When she is not in the office, Jennifer can be found helping her kids with their homework, talking, and making things to wear out of yarn and string.
