Lauren is an Associate Principal at CMG Landscape Architecture with 11 years of experience. With her dual interests in art and ecology, Lauren brings a passion for creating vibrant and playful urban landscapes – combining those interests to create warm, enjoyable, and inspiring urban public spaces. Her early work on residential estates has given her the ability to experiment with materiality.
Lauren brings that eye for detail to her large-scale, public work as a Project Manager on Treasure Island Parks and Open Space, where she excels at guiding the multi-disciplinary teams through every stage of the design process – coordinating all Phase I landscape/streetscape design and leading other landscape architects to integrate their work from an urban design and infrastructure standpoint.
Lauren uses her leadership and confidence to further the knowledge and skillset of others, teaching at UC Berkeley’s Extension Landscape Architecture Program. Lauren holds a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley and a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from University of Wisconsin.
Treasure Island Parks + Open Space
A contemporary landscape that is socially active, environmentally progressive, well-crafted, and rooted in its place as an island in the middle of the Bay. CMG has approached the large and complex redevelopment of Treasure Island as an opportunity to pioneer innovation in sustainable infrastructure and socially oriented landscapes.
Realize Flood Park
Flood Park is a 25-acre park with a diverse mix of cultural, recreational, and ecological resources. For 86 years, it has been a favorite location for family and group picnics, community gatherings, a place for walks and bird watching, and a range of sports activities. Building on the Reimagine Flood Park planning process, CMG has joined with the San Mateo County Parks Department to realize the vision by developing an equitable community engagement process to inform and enrich the design.
