Chandler Nyp is a 4th year student at Kansas State University poised to graduate May of 2018. A western Kansas native, Chandler spent his youth exploring the prairies of his home state and the mountains of nearby Colorado. These experiences gave him a great appreciation for nature, and inspired him to seek a degree in Landscape Architecture. While in school, Chandler worked on a variety of project types and scales. Chandler has begun the research phase of his Master’s report, looking at the National Park Service’s long time issue of balancing infrastructure and visitors with their mission of preservation. Aside from Landscape Architecture, Chandler enjoys backpacking and camping.
