Zeb joined BVH in October 2019. He grew up on four acres between two cornfields and a 9-hole golf course in Bertrand, Nebraska. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Design: Architecture and Master of Architecture degrees from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
His interest in Architecture is largely in the midwestern agrarian ruin. Zeb enjoys discovering, exploring, documenting, and communicating the moments of these that he finds compelling while gathering the stories and legends that surround these sites excites him just as much. Because of proximity between these dilapidated buildings to small town Nebraska- working to see the different ways that these buildings fit into architecture is something of a personal journey.
In his free time, Zeb attends local Lincoln events with friends, like Husker games, musical acts, and happy hours. Otherwise, he enjoys traveling back home to see family and traveling with friends everywhere from California to Canada.
What is the favorite place you have visited?
The Pantheon in Rome
What project are you most proud of?
My thesis project in grad school, Agrarian Ruins.
What is your favorite building or who is your favorite architect and why?
Cité de l’Océan et du Surf museum in Biarritz, France by Steven Holl Architects. It is the best total package of a building in its handling of forms, materiality and lighting, community and site relation, diverse programming, and the success it had sustained with all of these qualities five years after its completion when I was able to visit it.
