KATE D. LENGACHER CICHON
AIA, LEED AP BD+C
Kate holds both a Bachelor of the Arts in Architecture with a minor in Spanish and a Master of Architecture from Ball State University. In her studies, she focused on the link between architecture and social opportunity in order to discover ways in which the built environment can have a positive impact both on people and the natural environment. Throughout her studies, she also has dabbled in photography seeking to capture interactions between the natural and built environments as well as the people who inhabit them. This has translated into her day-to-day projects with LBBA that engage with communities throughout Chicago and the Midwest to provide well designed spaces and places for everyone.
Kate is actively involved in the greater Chicago community by volunteering with AIA’s Architects in Schools Program, and previously with the United States Green Building Council and United Way. Kate’s volunteering experiences together with her love of photography continue to shape her design calling that seeks to leave a positive trail of experiences through the medium of thoughtful architecture.
