Charlie Vega is a Senior Project Designer at KEM STUDIO. From Kansas City originally, he graduated from Kansas State University College of Architecture. With over 15 years practicing architecture, he has experience in a broad range of project scales locally, nationally, and abroad. Charlie approaches projects, be it a design detail, a large-scale building, or a city’s urban master plan with a similar mindset toward openness & collaboration.

While not at the computer or sketchbook, Charlie can be found hunting birds (with a camera), or at home reading the next hottest book in the riveting niche that is Landscape Literature.
