Charlie Vega is the Director of Architecture 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.
