Wyatt Frantom, AIA | Notes of Interest

Wyatt is an exceptional architect, a thoughtful designer, a committed voice in the community, and a respected leader in the profession. His innovative work and collaborative approach to design are enhanced by his strong belief in mentoring emerging professionals, maintaining ties to academia, and supporting applied research.

Wyatt is a senior designer and associate at Gensler Los Angeles. For the past two years, he has served as the firm’s intern research advisor, fostering mentorships among his colleagues. He is currently serving a two-year term as the national communications director of the Young Architects Forum Advisory Committee. As editor in chief of the YAF’s Connection, Wyatt has made the publication a valuable platform for critical thought and discourse, bringing together diverse ideas from across the profession into a single, credible resource for emerging professionals. At the national level of the AIA, Wyatt has served as Young Architects regional director (YARD) for Texas.

During his time in Houston, he spearheaded numerous initiatives that jumpstarted the YAF into the dynamic, member-centric group that it is today. In 2007, he organized AIA Houston’s annual CONNECT dinner, which brought national attention to the chapter as a case study of a successful mentorship program between young architects and members of the College of Fellows. The program is one of the chapter’s most popular events and also one of the most valuable to the membership. That same year, he received AIA Houston’s Young Architect of the Year award. He also co-founded Houston Mod, a now well-established nonprofit that advocates for the preservation of the city’s mid-century modern architecture.
