Kelsey Wotila

Research Fellow

Kelsey joins EDR as the studio’s yearlong Research Fellow, exploring what it would take for a case study of EDR projects to meet the Zero Net Carbon operation and 50% reduction in embodied carbon established by the Architecture2030 organization.

After receiving her Bachelor of Environmental Design from University of Colorado, Boulder and her M. Arch from University of Colorado Denver (where she was the Henry Adams Medal Recipient), Kelsey worked as a Ghost Residency Intern at Mackay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects and as an Architectural Intern at Anderson Mason Dale Architects.

She maintains that the role of architect should be as advocate, for the client and for the site, and on a macro scale, for the planet. The resulting architecture is the solution that fulfills the needs of the land, the user, and future users. As architects, she believes it is our role to blend numbers and beauty in creating sustainable spaces that people love.
