Tyler Patin established studioPATINA in 2007 after his professional emergence working in the area of Architecture, Urban Design, and Planning, gaining experience on numerous municipal and state projects. While working on his architecture degree at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, he studied abroad in Mexico City, Mexico receiving the Phi Beta Delta Honor Society Award for International Scholars. With his scholarship, Tyler analyzed and documented the dichotomy of modern architecture in a historical setting, studying the work of Luis Barragan and visiting the ancient sites of Teotihuacán.
Since founding studioPATINA, Tyler has contributed to numerous projects ranging from residential design to implementing code for neo-traditional neighborhood developments. His passion for the cultural vernacular of the Deep South and it’s importance to the regional atmosphere is based on the principal that effective and beautiful architecture should be a symbiotic relationship with the land and people enriched by it.
Tyler is currently Project Manager with ID Studio 4, with corporate headquarters located in Dallas, Texas.
