Andrew Phyfer

Master of Architecture

As a candidate M.Arch ’20 in AIADO, Andrew Phyfer is excited about the empowerment that great design can bring. Accessible as well as human-centered architecture and ideas around existing building typologies have been his focus to date, with the following thesis project challenging exurban development on Chicagoland’s periphery. Engaging in our existing building stock and landscapes is vital to the future of our profession!
