Laurie Hughet-Hiller has been a registered architect since 2012. She has been working in the profession continuously since her first year of college as a summer intern. She pursued her Bachelor of Science and Master of Architecture degrees at University of Michigan, from which she received numerous scholarships to attend and graduated with honors. Upon graduation in 2006, she began her career in Los Angeles at ROSSETTI’s Los Angeles office and then Clive Wilkinson Architects, who is internationally renowned for designing creative communities.

Recognizing that she could make more of a difference in Detroit than LA, Laurie returned to her home state of Michigan at the end of 2009. She continued to work remotely for Clive Wilkinson Architects while also consulting for local firms and pursuing independent projects. She served as LEED coordinator for the goal LEED Silver Santa Monica College Academy of Arts and Technology/KCRW Radio Station project with Clive Wilkinson. Laurie joined McIntosh Poris Associates in 2012 where she was an Associate until joining Gensler as Design Director in December of 2017.

She has since rejoined the team at McIntosh Poris Associates.
