About Our Featured Fellows
2020 Fellow, Todd Lawson – Todd is a licensed architect, interior architect, lighting designer and artist based in Seattle, Washington. Influenced and passionate about his ancestral ties to the Clatsop-Nehalem Confederated Tribes, he is helping define, design, and facilitate the creation of a new cultural center, museum, and traditional longhouse on the Clatsop-Nehalem’s reacquainted land near Seaside, Oregon. Todd is using the fellowship to deepen his research on contemporary west coast Native American cultural centers, traditional structures, art, and the building traditions that inspired them.
2019 Fellow, Jackie Santa Lucia, AIA, LEED AP, NCARB – Jackie is a licensed architect, project manager and community advocate based in Portland.
