Lyndon Julien-Sehl is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's School of Architecture, class of 2011. His professional experience is deep and diverse, having interned throughout college in civil engineering and architecture offices, before spending 4 years in Historic Preservation.
Lyndon's interests include investigating the implications of technology on, and the phenomenological aspects of, the human experience as they relate to architecture. He believes an architect should be captivated by "craft" and driven by well articulated concepts. He enjoys pretty much anything science fiction, everything with an internal combustion engine over the age of 20, mountains, forests, and lakes. His undergraduate thesis was entitled Technofuturism: Towards a Cyborg Ecology.
Lyndon is currently employed at a small, busy contemporary design practice in Brooklyn, NY where he is involved in all phases of a project from site investigation through CDs. He counts a solid exposure to CA , holistic thinking and robust creative problem solving skills among his more pragmatic charms.
