The Centre for Conscious Design

Coryn Kempster


Coryn Kempster is a Canadian designer, artist and educator based in Buffalo, New York. In collaboration with Julia Jamrozik, he endeavors to create spaces, objects and situations that interrupt the ordinary in critically engaging and playful ways. Their multi-disciplinary practice operates at a variety of scales, from temporary installations to permanent public artworks and architectural projects. Their academic research focuses on the role of play in the built environment and alternative methods of documentation as a form of historic preservation. In 2018 the Architectural League of New York honored their work with the League Prize for Young Architects and Designers. Coryn received his BA(Hons) from the University of Toronto and earned his Master of Architecture from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a concentration in Visual Arts. Coryn is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Architecture at the University at Buffalo SUNY.
