Lindsey Fisher

We welcomed Lindsey Fisher to our office last week. She’s an alumnus of the University of Kansas School of Architecture and the fourth survivor of the el dorado studio to join us here in Kansas City.

A few people have told Lindsey that she bears a striking resemblance to the woman in the artwork hanging in our lobby at the foot of our stairs. The piece (a collage called Alexandra by Enrique Mendez de Hoyos) shows the Belarus passport of a brown-haired woman, unsmiling, and a photo of the same woman on a United States visa, beaming ear to ear. Lindsey is not from the Republic of Belarus. She’s from Lawrence. And at no point in her life has she gone by Alexandra. Her middle name is actually Erin. She has also been told she looks like Zooey Deschanel. She assumes that this is because the average human being cannot tell the difference between two girls with bangs.

A few of Lindsey's talents.

Here’s what you need to know about our newest hire. Lindsey is a vegetarian who occasionally indulges in sushi. She’s an award-winning gymnast, albeit a retired one. After winning the state championship in 2005, she gave up the dream. Six years of bakery experience has given her the ability to simultaneously ice a cake and slice cocktail buns. Lindsey studied influential urban spaces on her travels in Italy, while under the influence of fantastic Italian wine. She’s involved with VanGoMobile Arts in Lawrence and volunteers for the JAMS program. She fills a much needed void at el dorado, as we’ve been searching for a cake baking former gymnast-turned-designer for a few years now.

Lindsey guest stars in a recent rendering.

Unbeknownst to Lindsey, she made a cameo appearance as a photoshop person in a few of our renderings well before she was hired. This genuinely creepy circumstance has us worried that all the photoshop scale figures we’ve used in the past will start appearing in our office one by one, wandering about like ghosts or apparitions. Some of us are looking forward to meeting the infamous “Man in the Pink Shorts.” Some are not.
