Kevin Olsen, AIA
Design Architect & Project Manager
Master of Architecture, UT Austin
Bachelor of Arts in Urban Studies, UT Austin
Kevin has been an Austin resident since 2002 when he began his bachelor’s degree at UT Austin in Urban Studies. There he researched the impact of mass transit on Austin’s urban growth while working to solve urban sprawl of the growing city. Further research included the development of historical identity in Vienna, Austria, and a design studio in Berlin, Germany, which lead to the research presentation of Marx-Engels Forum: A Proposal for New Berlin.
Previously, Kevin worked in Austin as a project manager and designer in residential and commercial design+build. There Kevin worked alongside builders and gained significant practical and theoretical experience in construction and building science.
Kevin is passionate about cross-disciplinary design practice which cultivates creative thought through collaboration of different user groups. He views architecture as a medium for collaboration, bringing together people of different skills and interests to solve problems together.
