Jeanne Chen

The focus of Jeanne’s work includes a diverse portfolio that embraces the critical concerns of community, identity, and place. She has advanced an inclusive design approach that fosters a culture of communication and cross-fertilization, adding vitality and meaning to the design process and ultimately enriching each effort. The buildings which emerge from this process celebrate the community spirit creating places that invite participation.

A Principal at Moore Ruble Yudell since2004, Jeanne aims to develop meaningful, memorable, and sustainable places, inspired by climate and cultural understanding. From the master plan of an entire gateway district, to inspired design that links new to existing, and to the revitalization of significant structures—her projects cross multiple scales and types and benefit from this changing perspective.

Jeanne’s work ranges from academic and civic buildings to campus and community planning at UCLA, UC Berkeley, Caltech, LA County + USC, Dartmouth College, an expansion to the Sloan School of Management at MIT, Bloch Hall for Entrepreneurship & Innovation at UMKC, and the recently completed David A Tepper School of Business and Quad Project at Carnegie Mellon University. She has also led the firm’s courthouse projects including the Robert E. Coyle Federal Courthouse in Fresno, CA, which received a Design Excellence Honor Award from the GSA, and a new state courthouse project located in Santa Barbara’s historic downtown district.
