Matt Miller (he/him/his)

Matt's collaborative spirit, penchant for learning and desire for working on varied project types makes him the perfect intern. He will contribute immensely to PCA's culture, projects and community initiatives.

  • I’m from  Hudson, MA originally, but spent a good chunk of time before college in Westford MA.

  • List your education  Bachelor's of fine arts in architecture from Massachusetts College of Art and Design (2016) and an in-progress master's of architecture from Northeastern University (2022)

  • Any notable accomplishments/awards?  I had several sculpture and architectural artifacts exhibited in a few exhibitions during undergrad and most recently was recognized for my studio work during Comprehensive Design Studio at Northeastern University.

  • Why PCA?  I'm really drawn to highly collaborative, team-focused environments built on shared values that tackle a really wide variety of different types of projects. PCA resonated with me for that reason, and I'm really excited to see how much I can grow among all these great people!

  • My earliest architectural design memory  Like many others, I have really strong early memories of LEGOs as a design gateway. I also recall vividly flipping through books such as Star Wars Incredible Cross-Sections or the DK-published Castle Cross-Section books that tied overall forms together with intimate experiences of how places are used.

  • Describe your favorite space.  I have always loved the Overlook Shelter Ruins in Franklin Park for the sense of history and mystery that it holds.

  • I’m excited about building technology that  Can make progress towards a more sustainable future. Technology that sequesters/offests carbon, and adaptable strategies that can stay flexible into the future are really exciting to me.

  • Cats or dogs?  Cats!

  • SketchUp or Revit?  Revit, although I have been learning Sketchup and enjoying it in my time here! In my work in the past, I've used Rhino a lot as well.

  • On my playlist:  Greet Death, Phoebe Bridgers, and a lot of metal.

  • Favorite book  The Farthest Shore by Ursula LeGuin

  • The craziest thing I’ve ever done is  Walking up the long hill to Neuschwanstein in Germany alone in the rain, not dressed for the mountain weather, just to see the castle from the outside.

  • What would be your personal motto?  Be aware of what you don't know, and try to always be kind to others.
