Laura Kimmel (B.Arch. '17) is a designer with a background in interior and urban design. Kimmel received her bachelor of architecture at AAP with a minor in urban and regional studies, which has informed her thesis and further research on boundaries and ownership of public space — specifically, the potential for generic urban architecture to provide accessibility and safety to day laborers in California's Central Valley.
Kimmel's professional experience ranges from set design in New York City to international architecture practice at Barkow Leibinger in Berlin. Prior to completing her bachelor of architecture, Kimmel studied interior architecture at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, which has remained influential in her work in small-scale installations and set design.
