Tristan Vetter

Project Coordinator

Tristan joined BVH in fall 2013, shortly after graduating with his master in architecture from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. A native of Omaha, his interest in architecture has roots in building six-foot-tall Lego skyscrapers as a child. It wasn’t until he took a random drafting course after graduating high school that this interest rekindled and thereafter found himself enrolled in UNL’s College of Architecture.

Tristan has many interests relating to architecture and has not settled on a specific focus. Rather, he is intrigued by the myriad of complexities involved in designing a building, problem solving and the many details that bring it all together. During his college career, Tristan took an interest in courses dealing with urbanism, landscape architecture, fabrication, tectonics, visualization and computational design and applies these lessons into his work.

Outside of work, he enjoys riding and wrenching on motorcycles, restoring vintage audio equipment and remodeling his home. He and his wife love to travel and have visited places such as Honduras, China and the Caribbean and recently added South Africa to the list.

What is the favorite place you have visited?
China.

What are you optimistic about?
I am optimistic about making an impact on the built environment and an impact on the people who use it.

How do you engage your community?
I have volunteered for the Bemis Center of Contemporary Arts, and my wife and I contribute to numerous local charities.

What is your area of interest or research?
I have interest in the digital tools used to create and document objects and architecture, including rapid prototyping and computational design.

What is your inspiration?
I am inspired by the perception of space of the built environment and how people (including myself) are influenced by it.
