computational design // landscape architecture // personal art work
As a former urban designer and landscape architect, the last five years Taylor has worked across multiple international reaching design firms such as SWA Group, Design Workshop, and Sasaki. His focus was pushing the boundaries of conceptual design in the public realm. In 2019 Taylor received the Young Industry Professionals award for Conceptual Design for his work on the Broadway & i25 Viaduct Park, Redefining Play. He is now pursuing a more cross-disciplinary, technology-focused design approach.
Taylor believes overall infrastructural change embedded in computation and technology access can yield a positive impact. He wants to address human perception by creating new tactical methods where technology, VR, computational design and fabrication play an integral role in championing heritage, history and character within underrepresented communities. Taylor also believes providing design, technology and fabrication services in neglected communities can facilitate creative problem solving and social dialogue that can be applied across a spectrum of civic fundamentals.
Taylor received his BS in landscape architecture from Colorado State University in 2015 and is currently pursuing his MS in Creative Technologies & Design in the ATLAS Institute at the University of Colorado Boulder. He is set to graduate in the spring of 2022.
