Michael Jantzen is an artist, designer and conceptual architect, internationally known for his uniquely innovative, environmentally friendly projects. He has been featured in the LA Times, New York Times, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, Popular Science, and Wired. His work has also been published in books such as Architecture in the 20th Century, Architecture in the United States, Architecture Now, Atlas of Eco Architecture, and Architecture Art; and exhibited at the National Building Museum, Canadian Center for Architecture, Harvard Graduate School of Design, Santa Fe Institute, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Michael’s projects primarily merge art, architecture, science, technology, engineering, and sustainable design, focused on the re-invention of a greener built environment. Inspired by his mentor Buckminster Fuller, Michael’s hope is to continue this research for many more years: now, via Patreon, you can become an important part of his work. By becoming a patron, you will not only be helping to fund his research, but you will also receive (depending on your level patronage) exclusive periodic updates and documentation of past projects.
