About Matthew Young

Matthew Young is an architect based in Los Angeles. He recently graduated from the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. He fell in love with the profession after his first all night design session spent building a stool out of cardboard.

As a student he had the opportunity to intern with SMNG-A in Chicago, IL. He also participated in the study abroad program, where he studied the work of Le Corbusier. He finds himself currently interested in sustainable building, the reuse of materials, and mass transportation networks. He also enjoys reading about the city of Detroit from his home state and the slow declining transformation it has undergone the last 50 years.

He recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the field, leaving behind the state of Michigan. He is excited for new opportunities and hopes to increase his work experience in the future. When not working on projects Matthew can usually be found on the golf course, obsessing over his coffee, or checking out too many books from the library.
