As an architect/fabricator, Matt Hutchinson believes in the reciprocal relationship between designing and making. Interests in the potential convergence of traditional technique and digital process inform his own architecture and design practice – PATH. He operates PATH as an open and collaborative model with work that employs physical prototypes, fabrication consulting, and speculative research.
Hutchinson’s previous professional design experience, ranging from Vincent James Associates (Minneapolis), to SHoP Architects (NYC), and to FACE Design (NYC) (among others) has afforded him a diverse and truly multi-disciplinary perspective. He earned his Bachelor of Architecture at Kent State University and his Master of Architecture at Yale University, where he received the Eero Saarinen scholarship and was twice a finalist for the H. I. Feldman design prize, the school's highest design honor. Currently he is a registered architect in the state of New York.
Matt has taught several undergraduate architecture studios and accompanying VDM courses at CCA since 2008. He also taught the Spring 2009 Solar Decathlon Studio – a part of the widely recognized “Refract House” entry.
