Kevan Cress

Designer/M.Arch Studentship

University of Waterloo

A recent graduate of the McEwen and Waterloo Schools of Architecture, Kevan is an architectural designer with a passion for Open Source tool making, interactive installations and small scale design build projects. Kevan has developed a software tool called MeasureIt-ARCH as an add-on for the Open Source 3D modeling tool Blender, which facilitates the creation of dimensioned and annotated technical drawings within Blender. MeasureIt-ARCH has been applied to the Living Architecture Systems Group’s testbed installations as a method of data mapping. Kevan has made further contributions to the LASG ranging from animation and rendering, video editing, and processing and coding, in addition to the fabrication of lightweight interactive installations.
