Lida, a Montgomery native, began work with the firm while a student at the University of Virginia, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architecture. After several years of full-time service, Lida returned to the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she earned her Masters of Architecture degree and received the notable AIA Gold Medal. In the midst of all this, Lida, an award-winning equestrian, found time to spend several months riding with British Olympic team members in England. In her spare time she can be found galloping across the fields of central Alabama on one of her horses. Lida is married to Matt Sease, brother of our architect, John Sease. Lida and Matt make their home on a horse farm outside Montgomery, in a new house and stables that she has designed from the ground up. They are the proud parents of Sarah.
