Lauren views her design persona as a strategist rather than an artist. She finds innovation through renovation by valuing existing systems while abandoning what is conventional. Her design process begins with divergent research and is centred around design thinking. What appeals most to Lauren about design is its ability to be so versatile and cross-disciplinary. She accepts design problems as invitations to explore diverse spheres, uniting differences with a shared quest to ameliorate. She is excited by the opportunity to immerse her analytical mind in a variety of environments and is optimistic about how design can better the world.
