Kelli Reinhardt

Kelli joined Waggonner & Ball in 2016 after receiving Masters Degrees in both Architecture and Landscape Architecture from Louisiana State University. Since joining the firm, Kelli has participated in the resilience practice, integrating the disciplines of architecture and landscape architecture to create holistic design strategies for changing coastal urban environments. Kelli is currently leading the firm’s efforts in Coastal Connecticut. An ongoing, multi-year project, Resilient Bridgeport improves the resilience of a historic coastal neighborhood, and is designed to integrate into a historic park designed by Frederic Law Olmsted. Kelli is also the landscape design team leader for the Beijing City International School Wangjing Campus, a 1,270,000 square foot K-12 grade campus in Beijing, China. 

While in graduate school, Kelli worked as a research assistant for the LSU Coastal Sustainability Studio, focusing on community-driven coastal resiliency projects. As a graduate teaching assistant, she taught a course on digital representation. She also co-taught the site strategies course at the Tulane University School of Architecture. In addition to her interest in coastal resiliency, Kelli also explores material connections through metalsmithing.
