Halfway through her undergraduate school pre-med studies, Noelle Ridley realized that architects value function as much as aesthetics. This discovery aligned with her strengths, and after taking some architecture electives, she switched her major.
Noelle, now armed with a master’s in architecture, is a member of Legat’s Chicago studio. She has worked on all project phases, though she focuses on space planning and detailing. Her professional portfolio includes healthcare, governmental, and higher education projects.
In her spare time, Noelle enjoys playing volleyball and camping. She earned her Master of Architecture and B.S. in Architecture (with a minor in Urban Studies) at the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.
