I see a new future for our world where environments holistically nurture humanity in ways that bring the best out in our nature as we actualize our highest potential. Architecture and urban design can proactively foster function, beauty, and meaning that use environmental poetics to transform and uplift life for the better in entirely new ways. With creative tenacity, multi-sensory design methods, and an innovation mindset I believe environmental design can play a major role in helping humanity and the world to advance into its next evolution where all can thrive.

"Maria Lorena Lehman has established a formidable international reputation. She examines how technology, nature, learning from other design sectors and many other aspects can harness benefits for occupants and in this way transform architectural design."

"After being in architecture both academically and within the industry for over 20 years, I feel as though what Maria Lorena Lehman teaches brings to light long lost and forgotten components, secrets, and keys to creating hi-functionality and attentive design. Something computers don’t often provide when the designer is in the trenches."
"I was challenged with learning how to touch the soul through environmental design. Since learning from Maria Lorena Lehman, I now understand how through design beauty is not only seen with our physical senses, but also with our soul and spirit."
Deyanira Khouri, Architect
