Kevin Lee, Designer

Graduating from Virginia Tech in 2017 with a Bachelor of Architecture, Kevin relocated to Portland to pursue a future designing with mass timber as a designer at PATH. His diverse background includes undertaking intensive team-based design & hands-on construction experience during the Design/build LAB’s program and practicing earth-construction techniques at the 2016 Grains d’Isère Festival during his semester abroad at the Technische Universität Braunschweig in Germany. From these various experiences, Kevin steadily developed a particular interest in the notion of approaching architecture as an act of making through an emphasis on materiality and tectonic processes. This perception of architecture is expressed in his undergraduate design thesis, in which he explored how an understanding of materiality and craft could inform the design and expression of CLT architectural connections.
