Elyse Ayoung a Creative and Interior Designer/Architect based in Boston. Dorchester native and first generation American to Trinidadian parents, she graduated with a BFA in Architecture from Massachusetts College of Art + Design. Her career has included projects of varying scales at small, medium and large firms – landing her in her most current role as an Associate Designer at Gensler focusing on workplace design.
She is passionate not only about the spaces she creates, but the impact her lived experiences and cultured background can and should have on design and the built environment.
As an executive member of BosNOMA and the co-founder of the MiD Collective, Elyse is focused on the success of the next generation and working to build opportunities and exposure to Design and Architecture for our youth and our communities. She believes that through design we can tell stories that move you; each project should be approached as a story untold.
