Design podcast, Clever, recently interviewed LEVER Principal Chandra Robinson!
Chandra was interested in design growing up, but took a detour to study geology and physics. After spending several years as a sea kayaking guide, she made the decision to go back to school and become an architect. A graduate of Boston Architectural Center, she is now a Principal at LEVER where she focuses on the intersection of community engagement and design projects, while challenging conventional methods of fabrication by using local and commonplace materials in exciting and unexpected ways. Also, since 2019, she has been a Portland Design Commissioner, and is an advocate for quality design, committed to celebrating Portland’s history, and being part of its future.
