The Elizabeth Olson Legacy Scholarship is sponsored by Architectural Justice honoring one of the firm’s award-winning designers. Elizabeth passed away at age 61 from an aggressive form of brain cancer in March of 2021. She is greatly missed by her family, friends, and colleagues. Her elegance, intelligence, and subtle sense of humor were just a few of her great qualities. She had an impeccable eye for design and a true dedication to her craft. Elizabeth meticulously planned and executed her projects with a detailed focus on form, function, and appreciation for great design. Elizabeth would be happy knowing that her legacy will live on through students with the same passion for interior design.
