Andy Lee
Senior Designer
Andy (he/his) grew up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., where the space from one house to the next formed a “commons” where play, social events, and other recreational activities unfolded despite overlapping jurisdictions, right of ways, and property boundaries. These experiences ground Andy’s perspective on landscape’s link to community and the unexpected ways infrastructure and urban form can foster it.

Andy received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis. At the end of his time in college he worked on a coastal masterplan for the lower Mississippi delta, which allowed him to act as a mediator between public, private, and community stakeholders, at scales ranging from individual trees to infrastructure networks. He then worked at Leupold Brown Goldbach Architekten in Munich and interned with the United Nations Development Programme in Bangladesh and DLANDstudio in Brooklyn. Andy’s interest in how land use and property law organize our perceptions of landscape led him to receive Masters degrees in Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, where he received the Charles Eliot Traveling Prize. In his spare time, he enjoys going on bike rides and reading in the park. Andy joined MVVA in 2020.
