Tyler Schram, AIT II is tasked with architectural design on a multitude of projects. He produces site plans, floor plans, sections, elevations and details drawings, with the goal of creating construction documents and design drawings that result in compelling pieces of architecture that function economically, socially, and are ecologically sustainable – to the highest degree. As a Boise native, he is fascinated by the potential in the Treasure Valley for infrastructure improvement to enhance community connections and mobility. His most recent work has focused on integration of public transportation in the area, and how architectural design can embrace the new transportation infrastructure creating alternative options for residents.
At the University of Idaho, Tyler was selected as a finalist in the 49th annual ICMU Design competition, and he earned an AIA Honor Award for a studio project in which he traveled to Togo, Africa to design a sustainable boarding school for girls in a rural community. Local nonprofit SHE (Style Her Empowered), helped organize the studio trip. He spent approximately two weeks meeting with locals, experiencing the culture and norms, helping to choose appropriate sites, and identify key elements the design needed to address.
In his free time Tyler enjoys spending time with his pets, painting and creating art, experiencing the outdoors, and attending concerts. He also enjoys playing piano by ear and producing music for friends, live shows, or just for fun.
