With degrees in environmental science and landscape architecture, both from the University of Virginia, Lauren Noe discovered the world of experiential design by happy accident. After 7+ years at Gropen, she is now a Senior Designer and loves the diversity of projects and responsibilities the role encompasses. Lauren is involved in all phases of a project, from concept development and schematic drawings to fabrication details, production, and installation coordination. From a tactile restroom sign to a 17-foot tall model of a DNA molecule, Lauren enjoys finding a way for each element of a project to contribute to the visitor experience.
