As a designer, Lemon has 15 years of distinguished professional experience in leading interdisciplinary firms, including Hood Design, NBBJ, and Ratcliff. In those contexts, she has completed projects ranging in scope and scale from sustainable site/landscape design for the new Student Activity Center at the University of Texas, Austin; to conceptual design for a 500-bed hospital and campus in Kuwait; to landscape planning for food production at the Village Bottoms Community Farm in West Oakland, California; to master plan guidelines development in support of economic and environmental revitalization in the Hill District neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

As a new faculty member in our department, Lemon will address ecological/sustainable design, health and well-being, action research, and design technologies, with special focus on landscapes of the underserved in her research and teaching.
