Founders, Tecture Design+Fabrication
Master of Architecture, 2011
After graduating from the Master of Architecture program at NewSchool in 2011, David Michael, Kyle Preish, and Slade Fischer founded their own design firm, Tecture. Their work quickly began making a statement all over San Diego, from design/build projects such as the Patio on Goldfinch and the newly opened Kettner Exchange to an installation in the San Diego International Airport.
They have expanded their business from a small two car garage in North Park to an office/fab shop with multiple employees and have brought into the fold several new members including several NewSchool alumni.
With a dedication to elevating San Diego’s design community, they have been creating unique, technology-driven, and customized works that include structures, products, images, environments, and events. From 20’ living walls and custom lighting installations to child development spaces, Tecture is bringing new life into San Diego’s urban fabric.
Two of the Tecture’s recent restaurant designs, Patio on Goldfinch and Kettner Exchange, were the winners of the 2015 Orchid design award by the San Diego Architectural Foundation.
