Kevin Tyrrell  approaches architecture as an urbanist with a socio-environmental perspective, and  is a firm believer that at its best, architecture can embody our nobler nature.

As a young architect  living in Los Angeles during the civil unrest of 1992, he observed the  dissonance of an architectural community that was dramatically capturing the  world stage with bold self-referential designs while failing to connect to the  communities immediately around them in any meaningful way. The ensuing  self-reflection and the desire to make such connections led him to pursue  graduate studies in urban design.

His professional path  has crossed with that of many talented architects and urban thinkers, which led  to his participation on many award-winning projects. Such work included a  number of high profile urban scale architectural projects on the forefront of  sustainable design. He is a LEED™ Accredited Professional with over 2 million  square feet of LEED™ Certified construction completedand  formed the QDG Sustainability Workgroup, a forum dedicated to the discourse and  exploration of sustainable strategies.

Kevin brings over  twenty years of experience on a wide range of project types. While his primary focus is the oversight of education, civic and urban design  projects, his knowledge of housing, mixed-use and commercial projects is  broadly utilized. On each project, he is heavily involved from initial design  concepts to the smallest details, working closely with clients throughout the  process. He is also knowledgeable on alternative project delivery methods, such  as design-build.

Kevin received his  Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Southern California, including  study in Italy and later earned a Master of Architecture and Urban Design from  Columbia University. His work at Columbia won an international urban design  competition and was exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, Detroit and Berlin.
