Kristina Jajalla


Senior Associate


Kristina fell into architectural lighting design through a happy accident. She had planned to pursue a graduate degree in Architecture, but her research uncovered a Master of Fine Arts in Lighting Design at Parsons The New School for Design.

Much of her design education before pursuing lighting focused on social justice, inclusion, and community engagement as it relates to the built environment. In her professional career as a lighting designer, Kristina is passionate about lighting for the people. With over 10 years of experience, having worked on a wide range of project types including academic, civic and cultural institutions, she believes that light has the power to create community, amplify voices, and advocate for positive change. She is committed to upholding these fundamental values through light. Kristina is honored to have been recognized with a “40 Under 40” award.

In continuing her commitment to be of service to her community, Kristina enjoys mentoring her junior colleagues at FMS. She finds it incredibly rewarding to nurture and observe people as they grow and develop. Kristina also finds excitement in opportunities to be an ambassador of light, and participates as a volunteer throughout the year for the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA), and through workshops, lectures, or recruitment efforts with various universities.
