Lauren E. (Polacheck) Bennett, RA

Project Architect

Lauren has had a love of creativity, puzzles, and problem-solving all of her life. In high school, a summer program at The Catholic University of America introduced her to conceptual architectural design, and inspired her to go to The Pennsylvania State University to pursue a degree in architecture. Being in the Schreyer Honors College gave her access to small, seminar-style classes in subjects such as sustainability and anthropology, and also led her to deeper study of concepts and trends in religious architecture. Lauren is passionate about the potential power of architecture and design to positively impact people across all realms and disciplines. She has had experience in religious work, senior living, higher education, residential work, and master planning.
