Carol Lanham, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP

Civic Principal

Carol is a 30-year veteran in the justice architecture field who specialises in design and planning for courts, with experience working in all aspects of justice design. In her previous life, she worked as an assistant circuit executive for the United States Court where her responsibilities included providing professional guidance on programming, design and construction for all court units in the Eighth Circuit, U.S.

Currently President-Elect for the Pasadena & Foothills Chapter of the AIA, Carol was appointed as the Director of Systems on the Association for Women in Architecture and Design's (AWA+D) 2016-2017 board of directors. Through her roles in these organisations,  she helps to advance and support women in the fields of architecture and design by providing educational programming, mentoring, and career opportunities for students and professionals.

Carol is a problem solver and mentor who enjoys working with a team toward a common goal. She thrives on finding out why people work a certain way, why they utilise a particular process and why they need a new space. To her, this is what comprises the essence of good design.
