As a talented design architect, Lauren believes that a collaborative and team oriented approach to design results in the most successful outcome for her clients. She combines her strong communication and organizational skills with complicated problem solving to make a swift and considerable impact on her projects around the globe. Her refreshingly positive attitude brings tremendous energy and enthusiasm to the project team.

In addition to her talents as a detail oriented designer, Lauren brings a first-hand perspective for international collaboration to MANICA. In 2012-2013, during her final year of graduate studies, she attended the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture – Val de Seine in Paris, France where she was awarded an internship at Jean-Paul Viguier et Associés.  During her time with Jean-Paul Viguier et Associés, Lauren worked closely with her colleagues and consultants on the design of the largest construction site in France for the 1,450,000 ft2Société Française du Radiotéléphone (SFR) Headquarters in St. Denis, France.  Upon her return to the United States, Lauren gained additional work experience on large-scale corporate, government, and educational projects while working at HGA and Wold Architects and Engineers in Minneapolis, MN.

Since joining MANICA in 2014, Lauren has worked intensely on the design and development of the new Golden State Warriors Arena in San Francisco, CA.  Lauren’s in-depth knowledge of a wide variety of 2D and 3D software programs has been critical to the success of the project.  Additionally, Lauren was directly responsible for leading and coordinating the project’s rigorous planning and entitlement documentation required by the city of San Francisco and the State of California.  Her unparalleled organization, persistence, and patience led the entire design team through a successful submission of one of the city’s most complicated multi-dimensional developments. 

Lauren received her Bachelor of Architecture degree, with a minor in French Studies, from the University of Minnesota.  As a student at university, she honed her leadership skills as President of the university’s AIAS chapter during the 2009 -2010 academic year.  She went on to graduate in 2013 with her Masters of Architecture Degree from the University of Kansas.
