Lauren is passionate about the unruly beginning stages of the design process. She appreciates thinking and research, but most enjoys how stories and big ideas transform into thoughtful, physical details through architecture.

Eager to expand architecture’s influence in American culture, Lauren’s research brings together architecture and rhetoric(s). Architects fluent in the art of rhetoric—consciously or unconsciously—are more able to make design and design narratives matter. Lauren is inspired by archimania’s unique presence and influence within the middle of the country. She draws on her background to help the firm continue to incite awareness about design and its untapped value.

Lauren’s design research has been published in the Journal of Architectural Education, Textshop Experiments and the book Florida, a collection of essays edited by digital media scholar Jeff Rice. Prior to joining archimania she was an assistant professor of architecture at the University of Hawaii, Manoa and has taught at Clemson University and the University of Florida.
