Lawrence Barriner II

Former Communications Manager

Lawrence’s passion for urban planning, engagement and design landed him at IISC in the winter of 2014/2015. After being in school for twenty years of his life (i.e. forever), Lawrence is excited to put his head-knowledge into practice and learn in a different way. He brings his teaching, web and graphic design, art, and research experience to IISC’s communications department.

Lawrence graduated with Bachelor and Master’s degrees in Urban Studies and Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in June 2014. He has worked as a freelance designer for a number of groups at MIT; written both academic and policy-related reports for cities, states, and organizations along the US east coast; had photography displayed in galleries across Boston; and really gets a kick out of “lifehacks/self-mastery,” side projects with friends, gardening, and really painful puns (some of which he keeps track of here).

Lawrence is a student of design and systems-thinking and is thrilled to continue his lifelong learning journey as a member of IISC’s staff and network. He daydreams about food systems, systems theory, justice, anti-oppression, and equity.
