Lauren Bergenholtz


Lauren is a Designer at CMG Landscape Architecture. Her background in the history of urban social movements, watershed ecology and rehabilitation, and bicycle advocacy brought her to landscape architecture. In her design work and research, she engages with themes such as geologic process, ecological succession, and community resilience. Lauren’s persistent work on Treasure Island Parks and Open Space, including the Yerba Buena Island Dog Park, Cityside Park, and the Eastside Commons, has brought this multi decade project closer to final design realization.

Lauren has received many American Society of Landscape Architects awards through UC Berkeley as well as the ASLA Northern California Chapter. In 2017, she was recognized as a University Olmsted Scholar by the Landscape Architecture Foundation. Outside of her work at CMG, Lauren teaches bike repair at a community workshop in South Berkeley and plans her next thru-hiking adventure. She holds a Master of Landscape Architecture from University of California, Berkeley and a Bachelor of Arts in History from Reed College.
