Knuteson holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Virginia Tech, where he completed a semester in the Chicago Studio Program and internship at GREC. Following graduation, he moved to Chicago to join the GREC team.
Knuteson’s undergraduate thesis work focused on the role of drawing in the manifestation of architecture, and he has a strong interest in the intersection of art and architecture.
