Tyler Mills is a Providence, RI based architectural designer. He grew up in Maryland working in carpentry with his dad. Those experiences propelled him to pursue an education at the Rhode Island School of Design where he got his B.ARCH degree. His work explores the intersection of history, queerness and the built environment. An ongoing project "Queer the Church" is an proposal for continuing construction on St. Peter's Basilica which would open new space and new interpretations of the Catholic faith through a queer lens. Although his work can be viewed as simply "paper architecture," look closer and you will find in the detailing that it can be constructed. Currently he is working towards being a licensed architect.
