"For-Profit Architecture: A Unique Way to Cultivate Business Growth"
In a career spanning more than 30 years, John Myefski worked hard to gain the knowledge and experience necessary to lead an award-winning architectural firm in Chicago. Born and raised in northern Michigan, John has an appreciation for simple, Scandinavian style architecture featuring clean lines and natural materials. While his style has developed and grown over time, John remains inspired by this elegant yet functional architectural aesthetic.
John earned both his Bachelor and Master's Degree in Architecture from the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. Later on, he received a Fulbright Fellowship and continued his studies at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts – School of Architecture. John subsequently received the Booth Traveling Fellowship for independent study of community-based architecture in Sweden, Finland and Norway. Most recently, John attended the Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management – Master of Product Design and Development Executive Education Program.
