Laurene is a senior in CEP and minoring in URBDP. Her main interest is urban design and wants to fulfill a master in architecture. Laurene is originally from Paris, France and is bilingual in French and English. Ultimately, she wants to use her biculturalism and world travels to find new concepts and designs for tomorrow cities. She believes we all share many common urban challenges despite our cultural differences. Beside her academic interests, she has a great passion for fine art. Since she moved to the U.S., she has involved herself in an oil on canvas impressionism studio. She has exhibited her work twice at the Frye Art Museum this past year as well as Facebook offices in South Lake Union.
