About 

Tyler is an urban designer and architect based in New York City. He holds a professional bachelors of architecture with an emphasis in urban design and a minor in architectural history from the Fay Jones School at the University of Arkansas. He holds a Masters in Urban Design from Columbia University in New York City.  His work over the years has focused on urbanity and cities at every scale-from Traffic management systems, transit stations and networks, to full master plans of districts and cities. He has competed on award winning teams in international design competitions and been published for various works. 

His research interests and focus revolve around, of course, the city, but specifically on the great inversion and the return to cities and the urbanization of suburbs.  Much of his historical analysis and writings focus on the cause and initial drivers of Americas suburban growth, thus, many of his projects and design competitions focus on the impact of de-suburbanization or the redesign and pedestrinization of suburbs.
