Laurencia Strauss is a queer non-binary mixed Latinx first-generation US artist and landscape designer raised in Miami. Their participatory projects, interventions, and community-based designs have been shared nationally and internationally, including at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Rhode Island School of Design, and The Studios of Key West.
They design experiences of mutual vulnerability and care that challenge us to adapt towards a greater sense of interdependence. Amidst social and environmental justice, their work attends to grief as a catalyst.
