Jennifer Mannhard, AICP, has a passion for creating vital urban communities and engaging public space. Her interest in the interaction of people, cultures, and the built environment has shaped her career—beginning in architecture, transitioning into urban planning, and evolving into design process management.

She has coordinated and facilitated community visioning, design charrettes, and national design competitions, including the National Mall Design Competition in Washington D.C., Design Waller Creek: A Competition in Austin, Texas, City+Arch+River Design Competition in St. Louis, Missouri, the Transbay Transit Center in San Francisco, California, and most recently, the Connect Kendall Square Open Space Competition in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
