Sam Carlson


Sam is an intern with CCY and like so many of our designers, he appreciates the importance of incorporating nature into everyday life. Working across teams and project types, Sam offers the studio help with graphics and a variety of important project related tasks.

Sam is currently in his fourth year at Kansas State University, where he plans to receive his Masters of Architecture in 2023. Part of his studies include conducting sustainability research in relation to CCY and other participating firms. His focus is on early design methodology and its impact on the sustainability of a project in the long term - by identifying what design processes are more successful in implementing green strategies, the design profession can be better prepared to adapt to an ever-changing climate.

Having grown up in an agricultural region of central Kansas, Sam brings firsthand construction experience building custom barns. Later, in Kansas City, he further developed this experience by designing and building theatrical sets for schools and community organizations.
