Previously he has worked as a designer with firms across the United States and Europe, including Bjarke Ingels Group and Snøhetta, where he was exposed to projects of myriad scales and typologies—from small-scale installations, residences, and interiors; to cultural institutions, museums, and public libraries; and to larger, urban master plans. He wrote his thesis on the spatial infrastructures of youth nightlife networks in Amsterdam, conducted independent research on the ad hoc architectures of post-industrial Berlin’s renegade rave scene, and assisted artists in Paris through the Cité International des Arts à Paris. Through NHDM, he also participated in the Venice Biennale of Architecture in 2023 and the Seoul Biennale for Architecture and Urbanism in 2019. He has lectured, been an invited critic, or taught in varying capacities at Columbia University, New York University, University of Houston, Boston Architectural College, New Jersey Institute of Technology, and Austin’s South by Southwest.
In addition to his professional and independent work, he is actively engaged in Brooklyn’s underground, techno scene and has consulted and assisted in the production of various raves and nightlife happenings around the city.
Kevin received his Master of Architecture with honors from Columbia University, and his Bachelor of Science in Interior Architecture and Bachelor of Arts in French Literature from the University of Houston, summa cum laude. Following the completion of his graduate studies, Kevin was awarded the the Lowenfish Memorial Prize, the Building Technologies Honor Award, and the William Kinne Fellows Traveling Prize for postgraduate study, allowing him to conduct research on architecture, networks, and territories of interim urbanism in Berlin’s underground, techno cultures. There, he focused on the methodologies with which post-industrial space was appropriated and subverted into ad hoc utopias of simultaneous pragmatism and romanticism—spaces where different logics and desires of the land are projected and overlaid—resulting from the urban modulations and crises beset by the fall of the Berlin Wall.
