About the Author

Lauren has been practicing architecture for over 20 years. Her experi-ence in design and construction includes residential, commercial, and educational architecture. She runs a vibrant architecture firm in Manhattan called Lauren Rubin Architecture, specializing in residential and educational design. A unique part of Lauren's practice is her balancing of archi-tecture, design, art and family - not just for herself but her amazing team of female architects and designers that worked at Lauren Rubin Architecture while the book was written. As Lauren's two kids were growing up, at each stage, Lauren donated her time to give architecture tours to her kids' classrooms starting in Kindergarten and continuing through Middle School. Lauren has a Master's degree in Architecture from Catholic University and a B.A. in the History of Art and Architecture from the University of Massachusetts.
