ISABEL ROUNTREE | ASLA
Isabel is passionate about sustainable landscape design, native plantings, urban gardening, drones, and photography. Growing up in Baton Rouge in a landscape architecture family allowed her to cultivate an extensive knowledge of southern plants and a hands-on understanding of best design practices for the Louisiana region. During her time at LSU, she interned at SWA-Houston and Design Workshop-Austin. These internships developed her skills in urban master planning and sustainable design. Living in Houston and Austin also allowed her to experience how large cities are successfully and sustainably planned and developed.
While at LSU, she also led the Art & Design Communication Across the Curriculum studio, where she mentored students on 3D design, 3D printing, and GIS mapping. She graduated Cum Laude from the Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture at Louisiana State University in 2019 and was named the LSU 2018 Olmsted Scholar, a LSU 2019 Distinguished Communicator, and was inducted into the Tau Sigma Delta Design Honors Society. After graduation, she chose to stay in Baton Rouge to join the Reich Landscape Architecture team, aspiring to be instrumental in the growth and development of Baton Rouge and the surrounding South Louisiana areas, helping them become sustainable 21st century cities.
