Heather Lezon

Architecture Co-op

Heather is an architectural co-op who has danced around the architectural profession working in a variety of office settings — from Engineering to Interior Design. She is an undergraduate student at the University of Cincinnati who is passionate about the balance between the old and the new, design concept and implementation, and the outrageous and the realistic. Heather is excited about the journey of learning as she reaches the full potential of her design career.

Where do you draw inspiration from?

I draw inspiration from history and buildings that have already withstood the test of time. There is so much to learn and so much beauty that comes from a building that has seen so much.


If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? Why?

Anywhere and everywhere. I want to see the world because there is so much inspirations and beauty in the things that have already been built.


What is your favorite thing about working at Reztark?

I love how there are so many things going on at once. Everyone is working on something different but collaborating on everything all at the same time.

What languages do you speak?

I used to speak Spanish pretty well, but it has been a while.


Have you traveled out of the US or lived overseas? Where?

I have been to Costa Rica, Naples and Rome, Italy, all were for school trips.


Coffee or Tea?

Depends, am I trying to stay awake or enjoy my drink?


Who is your favorite designer/architect? Why?

One of my favorite designers is Gian Lorenzo Bernini because his sculptures are so realistic and tell such immaculate stories; they also inspire the areas in which they will be placed. A Bernini sculpture cannot be placed in a mediocre building or piazza, everything around it must be up to par as well.


What parts of your profession are you most passionate about?

I love aiming to please the client. When somebody has an idea in their head, but they can’t quite imagine what it will look like when it all comes together until you show them a design that encompasses everything they were thinking of.
