Laurie Matthews BA ’92


Laurie Matthews BA ’92 was elevated to the American Society of Landscape Architects (AAL) Council of Fellows during an investiture ceremony in Minneapolis in October 2023. ASLA Fellows represent the most respected and accomplished professionals in the field. She is director of preservation planning and design at MIG and an adjunct faculty member in the departments of historic preservation and landscape architecture at the University of Oregon. In 2022 and part of 2023, she worked remotely and completed research on historic landscapes in Italy and England.


Laurie Matthews BA ’92 recently completed a cross-country road trip on Route 20, which links Newport, Oregon, to Boston. The 11-day trip included a stop in Yellowstone National Park and some off-the-beaten-track places in Nebraska to dip her toes in creeks (thanks to a fellow L&C graduate). The trip ended in Kenmore Square near Fenway Park and her former home.
