Kyle Palzer Associate AIA

Kyle received his Masters of Architecture degree and Metropolitan Design Certificate from the University of Minnesota. This combination allowed him to explore his interest of understanding how cities change and grow over time and the ways in which designers can create better places for people to live, work, and play.

Kyle enjoys traveling to various cities across the country and visiting famous works of architecture.  He has an active Instagram account where he explores photography and documents his travels. In addition, he also enjoys getting away from it all and experiencing all the things the great outdoors has to offer, especially anything to do with camping.  Kyle is an active volunteer with professional organizations and shares his knowledge by teaching the architecture, drafting, and landscape architecture Merit Badges to young Boy Scouts.

Responsibilities

Since joining Kodet as a student, Kyle has expanded his involvement in the firm.
