Larissa McFall

2022 LEED for Cities Equity Fellow

U.S. Green Building Council

Larissa is an emerging professional in the field of architecture and the built environment, looking to prioritize sustainability, equity, and social justice in all her work. As the 2022 LEED for Cities Equity Fellow, she will be aiding local governments in the national cohort in reaching equity goals while they work towards LEED certification.

She is currently finishing her undergraduate education at Drexel University, pursuing a Bachelor of Architecture and minor in Construction Management. Larissa enjoys research, always wanting to learn more about anthropology, culture, and people. In 2021, Larissa received a certificate from MoMA’s “Reimagining Blackness and Architecture”, where she was able to dive deeper into her understanding of the Black spatial experience. She has also recently begun studies to become a LEED Green Associate.

Larissa recently worked under the non-profit startup Normal Next in their C/Corps program, where a team of 5 associates came together to undergo training in design thinking, collaboration, and human-centered approaches. From there the team worked together on projects that aid public leaders in addressing issues related to climate change, equity, and public health.

In her free time, Larissa likes to do yoga, paint, and take care of her many houseplants. She is also a photographer, both professionally and for fun, doing portraits, fashion, and product branding, and has also recently begun exploring film.
