Lili Smith graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from U.C. Berkeley in 2012, and is currently collaborating with other visionaries and designers while carefully deciding where to pursue a Master’s in Architecture. Her decision to enter into the design field was a direct result of her intuitions and visions from an early age relating to the harsh realities of the world’s political and environmental situations. She is thus taking her next steps with a humanitarian focus in mind, and seeks to spend her energy and talents with like-minded thinkers, working on projects that are solving major quality of life issues that we will all face, including rising waters, hunger, water scarcity and government breakdowns across the globe. Lili’s experience also includes working in closet and kitchen design specification and sales, commercial and residential real estate finance, design assistance for Architects, set design and contract design work in Revit.
“I believe the key is to think far enough in advance to properly transition large groups of people into new ways of living, by developing adaptable, alternative methods of long-term shelter, sustainable food growth, and efficient water recycling.”
