Lynsey Sorrell, AIA Principal

Lynsey came to architecture after studying History of Art and Psychology.  She loves the challenge of solving design challenges at the large and small scale.  Working collaboratively with clients from inception to completion; balancing different project drivers; and seeking the most logical and beautiful solutions is where she derives gratification.  Architecture satisfies her need to think broadly and deeply about the environment.

Lynsey moved to Chicago from Scotland for graduate school at the Illinois Institute of Technology and has enjoyed giving back to the college as an Adjunct Professor in the undergraduate and graduate programs from 2010-2013.  It was while teaching that John and Lynsey met and starting scheming about collaborating.  She and Branyo had worked together at Holabird and Root and so the triangle was complete.

She is a member of the Ely Chapter of Lambda Alpha International, the Land Economics Society and serves on the Programming Committee.  She is the co-chair of the Northcenter Neighborhood Association (NNA) Zoning Committee.  She sits on the board of Empowerment through Education and Exposure a non-profit which mentors under-served youth in the Chicagoland area.  She is an avid triathlete and when not training she is chasing her 2 young children.  She and her husband live in Chicago.
