Lydia Kimball, PLA, LEED AP BD+C

Landscape Architect, Floura Teeter Landscape Architects, Inc

Lydia holds a Bachelor’s degree in Horticulture from the University of Maryland and Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Virginia. With nearly 30 years in practice, she has developed a specific expertise in site design projects for healthcare, senior living, academic and other institutional facilities with an approach that focuses on the ways landscapes can contribute to both human and environmental health. In senior living and healthcare environments, especially, she believes that direct engagement with the outdoors can provide measurable improvements in health outcomes, so the importance of integrating walking paths, therapy areas, vegetable, fruit or herb gardens, and social spaces becomes critical. Outdoor spaces should welcome and engage residents, clinical staff, and families to support physical, social, and emotional wellness. This also includes creating meaningful connections to adjacent neighborhoods in whatever ways are appropriate for the community.

Her higher education experience consists of over 40 successfully completed campus projects that include student centers, libraries, athletic centers, student housing, classroom buildings, and STEM facilities. She has been a presenter at regional and national conferences and contributes regularly to healthcare publications. She is interested in identifying grant possibilities for PHC.
