Nathan Korol

Architectural Designer & Building Scientist Last Updated: August 16, 2017 (3 months ago)


My name is Nathan, and I am a mission-driven designer guided by my curiosity for details, innovation and human imagination. I recently graduated from the University of Oregon with a Master's in Architecture and a specialization in urban design. I currently live in Portland, OR, transplanting from the Midwest, where I earned my Bachelors of Science in Architectural Studies from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and worked in several firms in the Chicagoland area; with projects ranging from public interest design and tactical urbanism, to mixed-use design-build, adaptive reuse, restoration, and historic preservation.

Feel free to contact me anytime with questions or comments. Thank you for your time and consideration in viewing my profile and resume.
