Stephen is an architect and design technologist. He received a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Oregon and also studied at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) as a visiting student. While there, he contributed to the construction of the 2013/2014 Research Pavilion and played a key role in the design of the 2014 Leichtbau BW Installation.

His interest in technology paired with a sustainable philosophy results in an iterative data-driven design process that brings people closer to the changing ecological phenomena around them.
