Tyler has over 17 years of experience in a wide variety of roles and project types and has built a comprehensive understanding of architecture through design, technology, research, and public awareness. Tyler increased his international exposure by collaborating on a wide range of projects while working for firms in Turkey and Singapore. With strong roots in rural Alberta, Tyler appreciates the opportunity to bring this diversity of experience back to a local context, exploring what uniquely Albertan architecture might look like.
