In her “wild garden,” Lynn Conway is an architect, but only inasmuch she shapes the landscape to both enjoy and encourage a healthy natural environment. Conway has been this kind of architect for much of her life. From her contributions to the evolution of computing, to her gender transition, to her advocacy work with LGBT awareness and understanding, Conway has and continues to encourage positive growth by questioning the status quo and finding new ways forward.
