Architectural Designer Alise Robles has been named a 2018 Rising Star by Healthcare Design Magazine. This award celebrates individuals who have worked in healthcare design for fewer than 10 years and whom the editors of the magazine predict will be the industry’s next great leaders. Alise and fellow honorees were recognized at this year’s Healthcare Design + Expo Conference in Phoenix, Arizona.
Drawn to healthcare design through her own life experiences, Alise was inspired to improve patient care by way of exceptional design. A member of SmithGroup’s healthcare design studio, she has focused her research and projects on healthcare and technology and is particularly interested in how artificial intelligence (AI) will affect the future of healthcare environments. Alise has been an integral team member on multiple clinics for the Cedars-Sinai Medical Delivery Network in Los Angeles, carrying projects from schematic design, to construction documentation, and onto construction administration.
A 2017 Herman Miller Scholar, Alise is also an active presenter at AIA events and conferences, as well as a member of the AIA-AAH Next Gen Committee.
