Kyle joined Design Engine at the beginning of 2021 after studying architecture at the University of Plymouth, graduating with a First Class Honours.
During his time at University Kyle became heavily interested in ideas surrounding biophilic design and re-use architecture. His final project, the Fish to Dish project, looked at repurposing an old warehouse into a new public realm. The aim was to connect the local people to the fishing industry through their visual and taste senses. The proposed outcome was to bridge the community back together using these design strategies. This was part of a bigger urban strategy, FISH, that looked at reviving the Sutton harbour area and transforming it into a place of celebration for the local communities.
Whilst at University Kyle won an award in his first year for his critical essay, ‘The Importance of Ecological Design and the Significance of Ecology’. Then in his final year his group were awarded for their Communications module that looked at understanding the architectural profession.
In addition to his University degree, Kyle has hands on experience working in the construction industry. Working as a labourer on projects that vary from smaller scale housing projects to larger scale hospital and school projects.
