Kevin Steffes is an Associate and joined Booth Hansen in 2022. Kevin has a depth of knowledge in experimental design and urban studies. While living and working in New York, he was a part of local advocacy efforts that focused on sustainability and transportation alternatives in and around the city. This interest in urban design led him to attending weekly architecture lecture series at Columbia GSAPP, followed by an Intro to Architecture studio before pursuing his Masters at the Yale School of Architecture. During his studies at Yale, Kevin participated in the Building Project, constructing a house in the Newhallville neighborhood, and worked on urban design projects, including the “Black Lives Matter” Street Mural in Downtown New Haven. He coordinated with the Department of Arts & Culture to manage the design and installation planning along with community groups, the Board of Alders, the Mayor’s Office and the Department of Transportation. Kevin has a unique background receiving his undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences, with a focus in plant genetics, and working in mortgage finance before pursuing his career in Architecture. This experience lends a profound logical and experimental approach to the range of projects at Booth Hansen.
Kevin earned his Master of Architecture from the Yale School of Architecture and his Bachelor of Arts in Biological Sciences from the University of Chicago.
