Lucy Wang

 

Lucy got hooked on the ideas of sustainable design ever since a life-changing summer in Portland, Ore. where she learned about "green" living and how to ride a bike. After graduating with a landscape architecture degree, she set off on a half-year trip across North America on mass transit to explore landscape architecture sites and cities, documenting parts of her journey at Landscape Voice. Through the trip, she cultivated a love for communications and has now decided to focus her skills on writing, advocating and engaging the public on green, transit-friendly initiatives. Lucy currently lives in Baltimore with dreams of moving out west.
